The new Corvera airport will NOT be operational this summer

(Please see UPDATE at end)

The Murcia Regional government has finally accepted the inevitable - that its new Corvera International Airport will not be operational, even with a few flights, this summer, as there remain a number of technical issues to be resolved. Also the schedule for flights using Murcia-San Javier (MJV) has now been published for flights upto 31st October 2012. So the earliest Corvera could become operational would be for the 2012-2013 winter schedule, when there would be fewer flights in any case than during the summer, so it means effectively that it will not be operational in any major way (if at all) until the summer schedule for 2013 at the earliest.

UPDATE (Tuesday 3APR2012 15.50 CET) There have been two further developments since yesterday; please see my later posts:
- Corvera Airport obtains Ministry of Finance approval as a Customs area;
- Spanish Prime Minister casts doubt on new airports and motorways.
