Could important announcements be coming soon about opening of Corvera Airport?

There is nothing as yet which merits the word "definite" relating to the opening of Corvera International Airport, but perhaps some positive news is imminent, if one places credence in the indications given by the Delegate of the [Spanish] Government to Murcia Region, Joaquín Bascuñana, who has said in somewhat Delphic manner that the airport is "un puzzle a punto de terminarse" ('a puzzle nearing completion') and has predicted that before the end of the year will be announced "noticias positivas" ('positive news') about its opening in the first half of 2013. Bascuñana has explained that in the final days [of the year he expects] that the final stages of the process will be in place, [such] as the closure by Aena of the civilian flights at San Javier (MJV) when it [Corvera] opens.

He has indicated that "muy pronto" ('very soon') the "voluntad de diálogo y el empeño" ('willingness to dialogue and commitment') of the central and regional governments will bear fruit in relation to this infrastructure [project].

Well, we shall see. However, if Sr. Bascuñana's pronouncements have any meaning at all, perhaps it indicates that there are grounds for optimism that Corvera may soon be about to open.
