The new airport at Corvera in Murcia has suffered another delay in opening of several months. Summer 2013 is now being put as the earliest date the facility can be operational.
The date was given by the President of the Murcia Government, Ramón Luis Valcárcel, who said that a thousand technical requirements and approval of the equipment used still has to be carried out. He said he did not want an airport with no planes, as has been seen in Castellón.
The departure of Luis del Rivero from constructors Sacyr has apparently slowed down the paperwork in Madrid. From Murcia himself he was sacked last October as boss of the multinational, and had been the person putting the necessary rhythm to get the airport operational.
The IU-Verdes spokesman for the Murcia region, José Manuel López, after hearing the airport will not open this summer, described the infrastructure as ‘ a never ending tale’.
Meanwhile AENA has announced 22 extra flights this summer from the San Javier airport.
