Murcia Airport (San Javier)

Murcia Airport (San Javier) photoMurcia-San Javier airport is located on the north shore of the Mar Menor, in the village of Santiago de la Ribera, part of the municipality of San Javier. It is an air station open to civil traffic.

The airport has become an essential node in holiday and leisure transport that arrives and departs from the Autonomous Community of Murcia. In 2005, it dealt with 1,416,537 passengers, 16,937 flight operations and 4.8 tonnes of cargo.

Murcia Airport is becoming busier and busier, not just because of the fantastic Murcia weather but with the arrival of several low cost airlines such as Bmi baby, Flybe, Jet2, Mytravellite and even BA.

With this in mind we have now produced the most detailed guide to Murcia Airport that is available.

Please note that at present (Nov 04) Murcia Airport does not have a direct Bus or Train route so you really need to pre-book Private Murcia Airport Transfers or Murcia Car Hire.

At the very least you should read our section on the Murcia airport taxis and how to find them after you leave the main Murcia Airport arrivalsarea.

You will also find a wider selection of flights and services 85kms away at Alicante Airport.

Other Information Murcia Airport

In June 2004, the terminal expansion, with an addition 1,100 square metres in the arrivals area, was inaugurated. Two new baggage reclaim carousels were installed, as well as office spaces for four car hire companies and five shops. Due to the heavy traffic increases in the past years and given the urgency with which the passenger service improvements were required, the expansion at Murcia Airport was added with prefabricated modules.

In 2004 the passenger numbers at Murcia Airport has climbed from 556.927 in 2003 to 848.037 and this is largely thanks to so many low cost airlines know choosing Murcia San Javier as a destination.

History

In the early 1920s, the Spanish Navy acquired a large plot of land near Santiago de la Ribera, on the Mar Menor, between the Cartagena - Alicante motorway and the sea, in a place which combined superb weather conditions and a perfect location for seaplane activity. In 1927, drafting began on the projects for the construction of the naval air station and, the following year, the work commenced. Hangars, buildings for classrooms, accommodation, block, a power plant and warehouses were built, wells were drilled to provide drinking water, and tanks, a hangar to hold a SCA-type dirigible at one end of the field, a hydrogen factory and a small port were constructed.

In 1929, the instructions organised by the navigation services in commercial areas at military and naval aerodromes opened the San Javier and Los Alcázares (an army-navy aerodrome established in May 1915 to the south of the town) aerodrome facilities to civil traffic. Air activity at Los Alcázares focused at that time on the retraining of pilots for seaplane crews. In 1920, during a course, the Basic Pilot School was established there, as was the Air Combat and Bombing School in 1921.

In early 1932, the basic works for the use of the San Javier air station were being completed, so the transfer of the Aeronautics services from Barcelona began, which were permanently based at San Javier.

Opening to commercial air traffic

In 1963, a report by the 2nd Commission of the Provincial Tourist Assembly expressed the need to request the Air Ministry to open the San Javier and Alcantarilla air stations to commercial traffic. The General Air Academy was willing to receive commercial traffic at the San Javier air station whenever it did not coincide with other flights. In addition, the commercial traffic required a number of facilities and services which the San Javier air station did not have and these had to be provided. Finally, on 20 July 1964, San Javier air station was officially opened to civil traffic.

The opening to commercial air traffic meant improvements also had to be made to the facilities in the manoeuvring area and, on 6 May 1965, a decree authorised the extension of runway 05-23 to 2,300 m. Some months later, the restoration and conditioning of the parallel taxiway was carried out and, in May 1966, work began on the aircraft parking area, the terminal and an access road from the Santiago de la Ribera - Los Alcázares motorway. Once the work was completed, San Javier Airport was opened to domestic and international passenger traffic on 17 May 1967. On 1 November 1968, it received its first scheduled flight from Madrid and, later, daily flights to Barcelona and on alternate days to Almería began.

To make it possible to receive international flights, the Cartagena Customs Offices were set up at San Javier Airport in March 1969, with a large room for the handling travellers, their possessions and luggage.

In the 1970s, improvements were made to the access road to the terminal and the car park; an NDB and a VASIS were installed; the aircraft parking apron was expanded, runway 05-23 was reinforced and a fire station was built.

In 1987, the offices of the Main Customs Administration of Murcia were enlarged at the airport at the San Javier air station to allow the handling of the export of all kinds of products.

At the beginning of the 1990s, work was undertaken at the airport to equip it with a passenger terminal of 3,500 square metres, large enough to deal with four flights at the same time. In June 2004, the terminal was enlarged to provide an additional 1,100 square metres in its arrivals area.

The airport has a primary runway, 05-23 (2,300 m by 60 m), with a parallel taxiway which has NDB, DME, OM, LM, PAPIS and VOR, as well as an ILS at the departure point 05. There is another runway, 14-32, on hard-packed earth that is 800 m long. The aircraft parking apron measures 390m by 104m and can house two wide fuselage aircraft or three with an average fuselage. There is also a cargo terminal building of 530 square metres.
