Murcia Arrivals

Murcia Airport provides an important gateway to the areas along the south-eastern coastline of Spain, or the Costa Cálida. The airport is found on the northern shoreline of the popular Mar Menor region, and is also a perfect point of arrival for passengers coming to explore the southern tip of the Costa Blanca. Although a smaller Spanish Airport, handling just over a million passengers per year, Murcia Airport provides access to a number of important cities in this region of the country. It is actually situated in a ‘triangle’ with the cities of Murcia, Cartagena and Torrevieja, a popular holiday resort area. Passengers arriving at Murcia Airport, or the Murcia-San Javier Airport, its second name due to its location, will find adequate airport facilities and a number of transport options from which to choose.

Murcia Airport has the official airport code of MJV, and serves as a military airbase and civilian passenger airport. Arrivals and departures at Murcia Airport are handled from a single terminal building, which has received a couple of extensions and improvements over the recent years. The departures area was expanded, and the departure lounge was renovated, while the arrivals area was also extended to allow for the easier flow of passengers, and to perhaps accommodate for a larger number of passengers to make use of the airport in the years to come. Although in 2010, Murcia Airport only handled just over 1.3 million passengers, a significant decrease from the two million handled in 2007, it is becoming an increasingly popular arrival point for many people visiting Spain. Since the year 2001, the passenger traffic at Murcia Airport has grown from only 200,000 per year to over a million per annum.
