More Corvera news, getting confusing!!

Lead story for the Sol Times this week, "Corvera Airport To Commence Flights In October". The article has been reproduced from a La Veridad article printed Monday.
Despite stating that it would be Summer 2013 earliest before it became operational, Central and Regional Government are now stating the necessary permits will be completed by October this year which will then allow the transfer from San Javier to Corvera.

Really don't know why they built it, there was nothing wrong with San Javier.

IF SAN JAVIER IS GOING TO CLOSE WHY DO THEY KEEP ON SPENDING MONEY ON IT LIKE EXTENDING THE DEPARTURE LOUNGE AND RESTAURANT AREAS?.

San Javier is a really convenient airport and the actually think of opening Corvera is typical of Spanish stupidity. We are in recession or worse, and spending money on an unnecessary airport is totally ridiculous.

Whilst in Spain in April of this year, we read in RTN that Corvera was due to open in October and Jet2 had their plans in place to move across to the new airport.
Whilst at San Javier airport waiting for our return flight back to Blighty,we were informed that test flights were actually taking place. organised by the Spanish Aviation Authorities, only time will tell if this information is deemed to be true.
As previous comments state,there is absolutely nothing wrong at all with San Javier airport, it's clean tidy,light and airy and has a marvellous situation and lovely views from the window seat on approach and take off.It is run very efficiently and is in a perfect location for travelling in all directions, even close to the ferry to La Manga, for those who require this service.
The big question is" Why does Spain need Corvera at all"or is it because the airforce want their airfield back? I don't know,does anybody know. We will sadly miss San Javier, if or when it goes,it is a pleasure to use.

I agree, san jarvier is clean, fantastic location, the view when landing really is fantastic, one needs nothing more to start the holiday, first class airport.

Why don't they just swap air bases, that way we will all be happy!

I agree that San Javier will be sadly missed but probably only by holiday makers heading along the coast. The residents of Murcia and further inland are hoping to profit from visitors coming from further afield than from the mainly British flights which land at San Javier.
