I understand that the new Murcia (Corvera) airport is going to increase tourism to the area.
Who thought that one up? It would have been well placed to serve the Paramount theme park, (which was why it was built) but not for the coastal tourism which the current San Javier airport is perfectly placed for.
I for one will not be using it, (and many others I suspect). I will fly into Alicante airport when it (if it ever does) open.
I suspect if it does open, to be a complete flop, tourists will avoid the coastal region here and the airport will be closed again in 2 or 3 years, by which time irreparable damage will have been done to tourism in the region.
Another job well done!
