From 15th January 2019 the taxi drivers of Murcia will also be operating out of Corvera airport.
Following a battle between the taxi drivers already operating at Murcia San Javier, and those taxi drivers in and around the Murcia city area, it was confirmed that the Murcia taxi drivers will have the monopoly at the airport when it opens. Only those taxi drivers registered in the municipality of Murcia will be allowed to pick up from the new airport leaving many San Javier airport taxi drivers left out.
At the end of October it was also confirmed that there is a flat rate tariff proposed for all journeys from the RMU airport within an as yet unconfirmed radius around the airport. This would be similar to the set-up at the Madrid Barajas airport.
The current flat rate offered from Madrid Barajas is 30 euros and the proposal is that the Corvera flat rate will be lower, 29 euros has been suggested for any journey within the radius.
As Murcia is quite a large municipality meaning that we expect there to be various tariff levels introduced over time, if not by the time the airport opens.
There will initially be a group of around 15-20 taxis available for passengers at any given time when the airport opens although this is obviously open to revision and negotiation depending on demand at the time.
As an approximate rule of thumb, according to the secretary of Fedetaxi Jose Corbalan, the cost per km is 1.12 euros but may go down, again depending on profit margins, demand and availability
Taxi from RMU to Zeneta, Alquerias, Torreaguera
To locations such as Zeneta, Alquerias, Torreaguera (about half way between Orihuela and Murcia city) the taxi meter will be activated and is likely to cost around 35-38 euros. It is around 37-40km journey depending on the route.
Taxi from RMU to Alcantarilla
To locations around Alcantarilla (west of Murcia city) such as Puebla de Soto or La Raya the cost is likely to be 30-33 euros. It is around 28km from RMU to Puebla de Soto.
Taxi from RMU to Los Alcazares
On our approximate calculations, a journey from Corvera airport to Los Alcazares is approx. 35 km making it a taxi journey which could therefore cost around 39 euros.
