In a recent statement, Fernando López Miras, the president of the region of Murcia said that the opening of Corvera Airport is expected to create jobs for approximately 800-1000 people across the region. Miras also recently presented a plan to encourage relocation for businesses and further investments.
The plan itself specifies that companies aiming to relocate to the Airport and the area around it will be requited to invest at least €400,000. The plan also imposes a requirement that hopeful companies must create a minimum of ten full time jobs in order to boost employment.
There are three separate areas considered by the plan. The first of which is inside the airport terminal building where contracts are currently open for commercial premises such as shops, restaurants and bars.
The second concerns the area outside of the airport terminal, such as parking facilities, filling stations and more. Finally, the third category includes businesses and facilities close to the airport site itself. This includes hotels, transport services, shopping centres and more.
As well as the new business plans, Corvera Airport has also been given level 2 aviation status by the Spanish civil aviation authorities. This means that it is now possible for airlines to schedule flights. There are 15 other airports across Spain, as well as San Javier airport that have level 2 aviation status.
