IAG (International Airlines Group), the parent company of Vueling recently held a meeting to discuss a proposal from the Murcia Minister of Public Works. This included a potential new route between Murcia and Bareclona. Both Patricio Valverde and the secretary general of the Ministry, Yolanda Muñoz, believe that there is currently sufficient demand to establish a new route to and from Corvera airport. This is based on estimates that 65% of the passengers who currently use the Alicante to Barcelona route actually have the region of Murcia as their destination, or place of origin.
A number of other potential routes were also discussed by IAG, although the Barcelona route was agreed to have the most commercial possibilities. This includes using the Barcelona airport as a hub to reach more places throughout Spain and across the world. IAG also discussed the advantages of the number of people coming to and from the region, with a potential for 4.5 million passengers.
Jet2 have also recently announced plans for new routes, with another two flying into Murcia airport. This is also the time of year that many airlines start to plan ahead for summer 2020 scheduling. Corvera airport currently expects to see an increase in routes. Click here to find out more.
