Activity gradually returns to the Murcia airport with more domestic services on offer than in previous years
The level of activity at the Region of Murcia International Airport in Corvera is gradually beginning to pick up again after practically grinding to a complete halt in the first four months of 2021, and it has now been confirmed that in early July it will be possible to fly directly from the Costa Cálida airport to Bilbao and Santander on the Atlantic coast of northern Spain.
The airline Volotea is offering 6,000 seats for sale on the services to each of the two airports being incorporated onto the arrivals and departures boards at Corvera, making the company the most important operator of domestic flights at the airport. Apart from Bilbao and Santander there are also flights scheduled between Murcia and Gran Canaria, Palma de Mallorca, Barcelona, Oviedo (Asturias) and Menorca.
The newly confirmed flights between Corvera and Santander and Bilbao will operate from July to September – pandemic permitting, of course – after the Menorca service begins on 23rd June, and the Asturias service is already up and running.
Volotea’s domestic flights at Corvera are available on the following days of the week:
Barcelona – Fridays and Sundays
Santander – Tuesdays and Saturdays
Bilbao – Thursdays and Sundays
Menorca – Tuesdays and Fridays (as of 23rd June)
Asturias – Wednesdays and Saturdays
At the same time, of course, international travel is also gradually restarting, and over the summer Corvera will be connected to the airports of Charleroi, Antwerp and Bruges in Belgium and various locations in the UK: Ryanair have scheduled services to and from Birmingham, Bournemouth, Glasgow and Manchester while Easyjet will be carrying passengers to and from London and Bristol.
