I am not a pessimist but I think it is dead in the water before it starts. Time and things have changed since it was first mooted; the massive investment in Alicante-Elche, airport, anti-Russian sanctions that make it onerous for high spending Russians to visit and invest, the holiday trade has radically changed and will continue to do so as rival destinations open up. Corvera will be yet another white elephant Spanish airport.

Granted an old news story but I doubt the overall picture has changed much; why would it in a climate of change, sanctions since 2014, and increasing austerity?

"Only 11 of Spain's 48 regional airports are profitable and its newest project has yet to see a single passenger through its terminal." The Telegraph.

Good luck with Corvera..... sorry, Murcia airport though. Time will tell.
