Murcia Departures

Murcia Airport serves a number of popular holiday destinations in Spain, as it is located nearby the cities of Murcia, Torrevieja and Cartagena, as well as the Mar Menor and La Manga regions. The airport is approximately 17 miles to the south of Murcia city, in San Javier, within the district of Santiago de le Ribera. Murcia Airport is a smaller Spanish Airport, handling just over a million passengers per year, but is still an important gateway and departure point for many local and international visitors. A number of low-cost airline carriers and charter companies serve the airport, and departing passengers will find that they can reach a reasonable number of destinations from Murcia Airport. Facilities in the departure lounge are considered to be adequate as well.

Passengers departing from Murcia Airport can travel to the terminal by road, in their own vehicle, by bus or by taxi. The main access roads of the airport are known as the Mar Menor road, leading from Murcia city, and the AP-7 motorway, which runs along the coastline a short distance from the airport. The AP-7 is used from the popular holiday resort area of Torrevieja. Motorists will find a parking lot just outside the airport’s terminal building, with around 750 spaces, or may use one of the nearby parking grounds that are operated by private companies such as Plane Parking, Seguro Parking and the ECS Park and Fly. Although a bus is available to Murcia Airport, it only travels from the Santiago de la Ribera bus stop, and only three times a day. It is a very cost effective way to travel provided that its times coincide with your departure flight, however, a taxi may be a more viable option at different times of the day. Taxis can be called to collect you from any location, but provide a more costly means of transportation. There is no railway station at Murcia Airport.

In recent years, expansions were made to both the arrivals and departure areas of the airport. A multi-shop and restaurant are available before passengers pass through security, and a number of shops and restaurants are also found after security. Once arriving at the airport, passengers should proceed to the desk assigned to their airline company to check-in, and to receive their boarding card and luggage receipt. The times for check-in may vary between airline companies, but are usually printed on the airline ticket. In general, passengers should check-in at least 45 minutes prior to the scheduled flight departure time. Passengers should never carry any luggage on board an airplane for someone they don’t know, and should never leave their baggage unattended at the airport. Any suspicious looking item or luggage that has been abandoned should be immediately reported to airport security for the safety of all at the airport.

Aena manages Murcia Airport, the official Spanish airport authorities, which are also in charge of another 46 airports in the country, and a further 28 in other parts of the world. At all airports in Europe, and Spain, the new regulations surrounding the quantity of liquids carried in hand luggage are applicable. At Murcia Airport, passengers may only carry a total quantity of one litre, and each form of liquid should be placed in separate containers of not more than 100 ml. The liquids should then be placed in a transparent and re-sealable plastic bag, and handed to the security officer for inspection. At most airports, the plastic bags can be purchased from vending machines in the departure areas. The restrictions for liquids are not applicable to hold luggage items, or for any liquid purchased after the security checkpoint. Passengers may also bring unlimited quantities of baby food, baby milk or special dietary foods that will be required for the duration of the flight. Medicines are also permitted, but if possible, should be accompanied by a doctor’s subscription.
