The popular Jet2 will start operating at the new airport starting April 1, 2019 flying, initially, from Leeds and Manchester. In the same month, Norwegian activity will also begin, linking Bergen, Oslo, Stavanger and Trondheim with Murcia. Between the months of May and June, SmartWings activity will start with flights from Tirana, Brussels, Burgas, Varna, Zagreb and Prague. And in the month of May there will also be flights from Asturias operated by Volotea.
In addition, other companies that did not operate in the former San Javier Airport are studying the option of starting to fly to the new Murcia Airport, as in the case of Iberia and Vueling.
How to get to the new Murcia Airport
The bus company Interbus is responsible for transporting passengers to and from the airport. At the moment they have put into operation 4 lines.
Two of them connect directly with the Murcia Bus Station (with a price of 5 Euros each way) and with the Cartagena Bus Station (for 6 Euros each way). A third makes the route to San Javier and San Pedro del Pinatar and the fourth goes to Los Narejos making stops at La Torre Golf, Golf Terrazas, Mar Menor Golf, Serena Golf and Los Alcazares (these two with a price of 10 Euros each way).
It is expected that from the months of April and May there will be new lines connecting the Airport with other localities such as Lorca, Mazarron, Aguilas or La Manga.
The company Radio Taxi of Murcia has confirmed that the taxi service is higher in the new airport since it is better prepared. The journeys between the new Airport and the main coastal areas last about 30 minutes to San Javier (approximately 30 Euros), about 40 minutes to Los Alcazares (approximately 40 Euros) and about 50 minutes to San Pedro del Pinatar (approximately 50 euros).
There are also three car rental companies available at the moment: Europcar, Goldcar and Firefly. In addition, companies like Beniconnect also offer private transportation services that can be interesting for families or for those traveling with special baggage.
If you are going to need to make a currency exchange before or after your flight, in Los Alcazares you will find the nearest exchange office to the Region de Murcia International Airport where you can exchange more than 35 different currencies with the best prices.
If you like to prepare your trip in advance, you can place a reservation of Euros to be collected on arrival or the currency that you need to be collected before your flight. This way we will have everything ready for you to collect it.
