Spanish Airports say that airlines plan to sell 5.8% more tickets for flights from San Javier airport during the coming months
In what may be its last year of commercial activity, prior to the proposed move to Corvera in January 2019, the regional airport has confirmed the upward trend of recent years by announcing the sale of 1,127,752 seats to and from the Murcia airport.
The number of operations will also increase, with a total of 6,240 flights in the next seven months, which is 3.2% more than the same period last year. According to Aena forecasts, San Javier will also increase the number of destinations adding a direct link with Frankfurt that was closed in 2007. Flights to the German city will operate twice a week, on Wednesdays and Sundays.
Another confirmed connection is San Javier-Brussels to Charleroi airport operated by Tui, which also operates a link to the Belgian city of Antwerp. Last summer the route was cancelled, although it did operate during the winter. This year the link will return with summer flights.
