Construction of the airport at Corvera in Murcia began in July 2008. The airport, which is expected to take its first flights in the summer of 2010, will be one of Spain's largest airports.
Situated centrally for Polaris World the airport is within 10 -20 minutes of the six Polaris World resorts in the Murcia region.
The region is currently served by San Javier airport which links with over 15 airports in the UK and Ireland with excellent flight schedules already in place from carriers such as Ryanair, Easy Jet, Monarch and Jet2.
The region has excellent flight links with Europe already and some of the best bargain fares to Spain can be found flying into Murcia (San Javier). San Javier is within 5-30 minutes of the Polaris resorts and Alicante airport is 50 - 60 minutes away.
However the addition of Corvera as an international airport will elevate the region further, opening it up to countries beyond Europe. With 3 airports serving the region Murcia will be the most accessible area in Spain for the UK and Ireland. Murcia already has the highest growth rate of tourist visitors in Spain.
Once flights begin in 2010 this will be excellent news for property prices in the region, which at 16% below the average price of Spanish property have plenty of scope to catch up.
