De-escalation in Murcia: Ryanair will resume seven Corvera routes from July
The Irish company will maintain the flights to Palma that it launched a year ago and most of the connections with the United Kingdom and Ireland
Ryanair will fly again from the Corvera airport from July 1 after the stoppage suffered by regular flights since the state of emergency was declared on March 14. The Irish company will resume seven flights in early July that will link the Region with the United Kingdom, Ireland and Palma de Mallorca, a national destination that opened a year ago. The connection to Palma will be re-established on July 2 and will operate on Thursdays and Sundays.
Since the state of emergency was decreed, Corvera airport has remained open, although it has only received emergency flights from the National Transplant Organization and repatriation of Spaniards who were abroad when the pandemic occurred, in addition to aircraft placement.
At this time, people are only allowed to move for work reasons, so none of the companies that operate at the regional airport are flying, although the summer season should have started in late March.
Ryanair has been the first airline to announce the recovery of part of its air routes, which in this Region will begin on July 1 with flights from Manchester, Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Last year the company had ten operating routes from Corvera airport, including Palma, which means that it has maintained 70% of the operational destinations during the spring-summer season of 2019 which concluded at the end of October.
Ryanair will also link the Region with Dublin (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays), London Stansted (Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays), Birmingham (Tuesdays and Saturdays), Glasgow (Mondays and Fridays) and Bornemouth (Mondays and Fridays).
The three routes that will not resume are London Luton, Leeds Bradford and East Midlands.
The airline has announced new sanitary measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, such as downloading the boarding pass to the passenger’s phone, as well as carrying out temperature controls at the airport entrance and wearing masks.
Corvera airport was opened in January 2019 and in its first summer campaign it received flights from more than twenty destinations, which will hardly be reached this year.
