    One Million Barrier Topped at Corvera Murcia Airport

    Corvera Murcia Airport has made steady progress since officially opening on 15 January and taking over from San Javier as the main civilian airport in the Murcia region.

    Corvera Murcia Airport has made steady progress since officially opening on 15 January and taking over from San Javier as the main civilian airport in the Murcia region.

    As the first year draws to a close, routes continue to be added to the airport’s seasonal schedules, and officials report that their objectives are being met, albeit gradually. 

    Regional Operating Fee

    Spanish national airport authority Aena will have to start paying the Murcia regional government an operating fee, after reaching a total of one million passengers passing through the Corvera terminal. This is the threshold at which the initial fee takes effect: €0.84 per passenger, for a total of €840,000.

    Corvera Murcia is the only airport in Spain that Aena operates as a franchisee. According to franchise general manager, Mariano Menor, in an interview with La Verdad, Corvera Murcia Airport’s passenger traffic is around 10 per cent below that registered at San Javier in 2018, but 10 per cent above initiual forecasts when the Corvera contract was drawn up. 

    Binter Connections with the Canaries

    In October, Binter began offering direct and regular flights to Las Palmas (in the Canary Islands) from Corvera Murcia Airport. 

    Operating twice-weekly, on Tuesdays and Saturdays, the approximately two and a half hour flights are scheduled to leave Las Palmas at 8am (Canaries time, one hour behind the mainland) and return from Corvera Murcia at 12.45pm.  

    The flights are on Bombardier CRJ 1000 aircraft, providing “high efficiency, reliability and performance”, according to Binter, and with capacity for 100 passengers.

    Ryanair Flights to Mallorca

    Ryanair is planning to reconnect Corvera Murcia Airport with Palma de Mallorca next spring and summer, from 29 March, according to a report in Murcia Economía

    In 2019 these flights started in June, three times a week (Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays); whereas in 2020 they will reportedly only be available on Thursdays (1pm from Palma and returning at 2.40pm) and Sundays (12.55pm and 2.45pm, respectively). This schedule is due to continue until 22 October.

    TUIFly Links with Belgium

    Corvera Murcia Airport is scheduled to have a new twice-weekly connection with Belgium from 4 April. Corvera already has two existing routes to Antwerp and Charleroi, and this third service will be connected to Bruges-Ostende – all operated by TUIFly. 

    The flights are scheduled to take off from Murcia at 9.45am and return at 1pm, on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

    Located 33 kilometres from Bruges and five from Ostend, the airport services the third highest number of airline passengers in Belgium. Ostende is also TUIFly’s headquarters.

    Volotea plans to offer an exclusive route between Bilbao’s Loiu Airport and Corvera Murcia Airport from May next year. A specialist airline operator covering mid and small-sized cities around Europe, Volotea says it will link Bilbao with Corvera twice a week, for the first time and exclusively, offering 9,100 seats.  

    Launched from 27 May, the flight schedule is: 

    • Bilbao-Murcia
    • May to July – Wednesdays and Saturdays 7am
    • July to August – Wednesdays 6.45am and Saturdays 7am
    • Murcia-Bilbao
    • May to July – Wednesdays and Saturdays 1pm
    • July to August – Wednesdays 9.40pm and Saturdays 1pm

    Since January 2019, Volotea has transported more than 200,000 passengers from Bilbao, 64 per cent more than for the same period the previous year. From June to September the company transported over 92,000 passengers and reached 98 per cent occupancy on all flights and a 100 per cent compliance rate, which means they did not cancel any flights. During this period the company reached a punctuality rate of 87 per cent (OTP 15 Arrivals- Flightstats).

    Announcing the new link, Volotea founder and CEO Carlos Muñoz Beraza said, “We are delighted to add Murcia to the 12 destinations that we already offer from Bilbao, where Volotea had a very good reception. Bilbao and Murcia are two very special cities for us, and for me personally, being half from each city. We hope it will be a great success for travellers.”

    Burgeoning European-Wide Network

    Volotea has carried more than 22 million passengers since its first flight in 2012. In 2019, the company opened 41 new routes to serve a total line-up of 319 routes, operating flights to more than 80 mid and small-sized European cities in 13 countries: France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Greece, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Portugal, Malta, Austria, Ireland, Luxembourg and Morocco. The airline expects to have carried  between 7.5 and eight million passengers by the end of 2019.

    Volotea currently has 13 bases: Venice, Nantes, Bordeaux, Palermo, Strasbourg, Asturias, Verona, Toulouse, Genoa, Bilbao, Marseille and Athens (the last three inaugurated in 2018) and Cagliari (launched  in May this year).

    This year, Volotea has been operating its network with 36 aircraft – Boeing 717s and Airbus A319s –  after adding six additional aircraft in 2019. Both models are recognised for their comfort and reliability, notes Volotea, including reclining seats that are five per cent wider than the average in airlines.

    “The Airbus A319 is the aircraft model selected for its future growth and will allow the company to increase its passenger capacity by 25 per cent to 156 seats and to serve longer routes.”

    Corvera Murcia Airport will be included in a Climate Change Strategy being developed by Aena “to minimise the effect of air transport on the planet”.

    Announcing the initiative, the Spanish airport authority stressed that, while air transport was a key source of wealth, minimising its effect on the environment was also vital. Hence its development of the strategy.

    A report in El País newspaper outlined details of the strategic plan. “Air travel not only enriches us by connecting us with other parts of the world, but it also represents major capital importance in the global economy. In Spain alone, tourism accounts for 11 per cent of national GDP. However, these social and economic benefits must also be compatible with one of the most important challenges today: the fight against climate change.”

    Aena’s Climate Change Strategy incorporates measures aimed at enhancing decarbonisation and energy sustainability at its airports (just under 50 in Spain, including Corvera Murcia, Alicante-Elche and Málaga-Costa del Sol). These include an ongoing commitment to its Photovoltaic Plan, which focuses on renewable energy and generates 70 per cent of photovoltaic energy for self-supply.

    Another measure is active participation in the ACI Airport Carbon Accreditation program, in which eight Aena airports (covering more than 70 per cent of passengers in the network) evaluate their efforts in the management and reduction of CO2 emissions. The goal is to reach level 3+ of this program at Spain’s two main airports, Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas and and Josep Tarradellas Barcelona-El Prat, obtaining carbon neutrality by 2030.

    As part of the NetZero2050 initiative at the 29th edition of the Annual Congress of ACI Europe, Aena joined other European airports in the challenge of reaching zero carbon emissions at its airports by 2050. 

    • Concrete measures involve:
    • Production of renewable energy at the airports’ own facilities.
    • Purchase of 100 per cent renewable energy.
    • Use of eco vehicles
    • Incorporation of energy-efficiency options
    • Recharging points for electric vehicles
    • 400hz power supply for parked aircraft
    • Boosting the use of biofuel by airlines

    Latest Passenger Figures

    Aena has also just released its monthly report for September. Corvera Murcia Airport registered a total of 904,828 travellers in the first nine months of the year. This figure rose to 926,387 when the 21,559 travellers managed by Murcia-San Javier Airport in the first 14 days of the year (i.e. before Corvera Murcia Airport was commissioned on 15 January) were added.

    As for aircraft movements, in the first nine months of the year 6,444 landing and take-off operations were registered at Corvera Murcia Airport, plus 222 at Murcia-San Javier in January – for a total of 6,666 operations in the Murcia region.

    During September, a total of 130,535 passengers used the facilities at Corvera Murcia Airport, and 898 landing and take-off operations were managed.

    Murcia Flights To Be Cheaper With Introduction of Lower Airline Tariffs

    The recent collapse of Thomas Cook has sent shock waves throughout the tourism industry and, with many jobs and positions at risk, representatives across the board are looking to find ways to combat the negative impact of the collapse. Enaire, the public company that manages air navigation in Spain, has announced a move that could see cheaper travel in Spain – welcome not only for Murcia but for much of Spain.

    Enaire will be reducing the tariffs that airlines are charged to land at airports managed by Aena. The announcement comes off the back of the Thomas Cook collapse as many regions of Spain such as the Canaries, Balearics, Andalucía and other top tourist destinations are expected to be hit by the loss of travellers who would have booked with the company.

    While Murcia isn’t predicted to be as hard hit by the collapse as other regions could be, the reduction of airline tariffs will be a welcome and unexpected benefit for travellers to the region. As fuel costs remain high and with the economy as it is, the reduction of airline tariffs is seen as a move towards ensuring some continuity in the tourism sector. The expectation is that there will be a positive knock-on effect of travel to Murcia being cheaper. Murcia is still recovering from the devastating effect of the recent Gota Fria storm and any efforts to make flying into the region an attractive prospect are highly welcome by all.

    Corvera Murcia Airport has been honoured with the 2019 “Paloma de Turismo” award, presented by the University of Murcia’s tourism faculty. Also sharing the award – officially presented during a gala event held in conjunction with International Tourism Day celebrations – were the Centro de Información Europea and Festival de Teatro de San Javier.

    Cristina Sánchez, the regional minister for tourism, youth and sports, was keen to explain the significance of the awards. “The winners are tireless fighters who face adversities without throwing in the towel, with perseverance, hard work and tourism at the forefront of their thoughts as a source of economic, social and cultural development.”

    Unquestionably, she noted, the region receives a strong impact from tourism. This was reflected in a year-on-year increase in the number of workers in the sector, 6.6 per cent in the region in 2019 – the second largest rise in Spain and higher than the national average increase (5.2 per cent).

    Accompanied by the dean of the university’s tourism faculty, María Isabel Sánchez-Mora, the minister also highlighted the work of the award-winning companies and employees. “The awards are bestowed on those who, through their day-to-day efforts, defend the key objective of ensuring the Murcia region is a place that nobody can avoid visiting and learning more about.” In addition, she stressed, the winners “use the values that co-exist in tourism to achieve their goals.”

    Passenger Figures at Corvera Murcia Airport

    Corvera Murcia Airport handled 774,293 passengers in the first eight months of the year, according to latest available figures. The total rose to 795,852 for the whole region, when Murcia San Javier Airport’s travellers were included in the figures: i.e. 21,559 in the first 14 days of the year, before Corvera Murcia Airport was officially  inaugurated on 15 January.

    As for aircraft movements, during the first eight months of the year 5,546 landing and take-off operations were registered at Corvera Murcia Airport (plus 222 at Murcia San Javier in January), for a total of 5,768 operations in the Murcia region.
