From March 2019, our flights to the Murcia region will operate to Corvera Airport, with operations to San Javier Airport ceasing from November 2018 due to the airport closing.
The announcement ensures a continuity of flights and holidays to the region for customers of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, and comes as a result of us working closely with both airports as well as the Murcia Regional Government. Our operation to San Javier will operate as normal throughout Summer 18.
From March/April 2019, flights will operate to Corvera Airport from Leeds Bradford and Manchester Airports, meaning that customers at both bases will continue to have access to award-winning flights and package holidays to Murcia.
The airport is located just 19 kilometres from Murcia City and 28 kilometres from the Costa Calida coast, and brand new road links to the A30 motorway network ensure a swift transfer to the holiday resorts in the region.
On top of that, the friendly Jet2.com and Jet2holidays team will be present at the Corvera Airport to deliver our famous VIP customer service.
Flights from Leeds Bradford will start operating to Corvera from March 29th 2019, with three weekly services (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays) operating until 25th October 2019.
Flights from Manchester will start operating to Corvera from April 1st 2019, with three weekly services (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays) also operating until 25th October 2019.
This means that we have more than 55,000 seats on sale to and from Corvera Airport. The services complement our popular Alicante operation, which we operate from all nine of our UK bases.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “We are very impressed with the facilities at Corvera Airport, and we have been working hard to ensure that customers receive the same friendly welcome and VIP customer experience that Jet2.com and Jet2holidays is famous for. In the meantime our Summer 18 operation to San Javier will continue as normal.”
