On January 15, 2019, King Philip VI of Spain inaugurated Murcia Airport, owned by the Autonomous Community of Murcia. The Murcia Regional Assembly, in 2017, decided to name it Juan de la Cierva International Airport.
However, the name is maintained as the Murcia International Airport, due to the processing that the General Directorate of Aviation must carry out. It is also known locally by the name of Corvera Airport. The Airport is 25 km from the city of Murcia, between the villages of Corvera and Valladolises, in the Campo de Cartagena region.
Murcia International Airport is characterized by its modern and comfortable facilities. It has a track 3 km long and 45 meters wide, with a Boeing 747-400 being the largest aircraft that this airport can receive. The passenger terminal is 28,500 m2, with nine doors through which passengers board, 25 check-in counters, and four belts for the removal of luggage from various trips.
The airport code that the IATA (International Air Transport Association) assigned to Murcia Airport is RMU, while the ICAO airport code is LEMI. Murcia International Airport has four bus lines that connect to the main cities in the region. Various companies provide passenger transfer services. In the case of trips with private vehicles, the Murcia province has a network of motorways, which enables secure communication with the different tourist destinations.
