Private vehicles who take passengers to Alicante airport will be able to park for 15 minutes for free from July

Private vehicles who take passengers to Alicante airport will be able to park for 15 minutes for free from July

Aena are building a new parking "express terminal facing the departures terminal of El Altet which in turn will hopefully speed up the movement of unaccompanied and accompanied passengers arriving at the airport to catch a flight.

Currently, the regulated area has become a shambles because nobody respects the prohibition to park with a maximum of five minutes. 

The start of work is imminent. The works will be carried out in the driveway area farthest from the main sidewalk cafe where smoking are also located. There will be two accesses that will alternate to always keep one open. 

Five million people a year pass through the area of access to terminals prior to boarding a flight .

22,000€ a day to keep a ghost airport in Murcia
Friday, May 8, 2015

It most certainly will not be open for business in 2015 as the airport cannot bid for slots or business until it is officially open and operational. , Corvera has joined Castellón and Ciudad Real as multi-million euro projects that make up Spain’s Ghose Airports.

As highlighted in the Spanish national press this week, Corvera still does not have a single aircraft, airline or passengers, which once again his brought up the question of why this costly infrastructure was planned and built in the first instance, especially since 70 million euros of improvements were taking place at San Javier, just 35 kilometres away. 

Since its inception, Corvera has been surrounded in controversy. The management concession was given to the Aeromur consortium, led by Sacyr, in 2007 with the concession rights to operate the airport over the next 40 years. Corvera begun construction in 2008. Two years later, work ceased on the project as Aeromur noted the impossibility of finding financing for the project. Finally, the Murcia Community was forced to guarantee a loan of 182 million euros for the completion of construction in exchange for the concession giving up their rights to the project.
