Corvera takes off

The contract for the management of Murcia new International Airport has been awarded to a Murcian based company headed by Sacyr-Vallehermoso. The company Aeromur is made up of various partners, including Cajamurcia, the CAM bank, Inocsa, Hernandez Fidal, Monthisa, Fuertes and Sacyr which has an almost 60% share of the company.

The budget to build the airport has been set at over €185 million although the total investment is expected to reach €555 million. The Minister of Public works, Joaquin Bascuñana announced that Aeromur would not have six months to present the project in detail, in which time it will then have to be approved by the Civil Aviation Authority. The new airport is expected to open in 2010 with an initial passenger volume of 1.5million.

The opening of the new International Corvera Airport will not affect San Javier airport in any way whatever according to Bascuñana who stated "San Javier is an extremely important part of the region of Murcia and by 2010 Murcia will benefit from two airports located within a short distance from one another. San Javier airport has increased in popularity tremendously over the past few years. In 2002 approximately 313,000 passengers used the airport, and this figure rose to 1,645,000 in 2006.
