Introduction

On 20 December 2017 Aena SME, S.A. was awarded the tender for the management, operation and maintenance of the Aeropuerto Internacional Región de Murcia. 

The Aeropuerto Internacional Región de Murcia is equipped with the most modern facilities and it has all the services to make the trip through the airport a nice experience.

The terminal building, of about 37,000 square metres, has a big hall with 24 check-in counters and one more for special luggage in the departures area. Three doble security checkpoints lead to the boarding area with 9 boarding gates (6 for flights to non Schengen countries and 3 for flights to Schengen countries). The baggage reclaim hall has three carousels and one more for special baggage. This area leads to the arrivals hall in the general lobby, the great protagonist in the airport.

The airfield has a 5-23 runway measuring 3,000 x 45 m, a complete parallel taxiway, a high speed exit taxiway at threshold 23, two holding bays at both ends and two apron access roads.

The cargo aircraft apron has an area of 74,000 square metres with several positions for type B738/A321, B753/B763, B747 aeroplanes, general aviation and corporate jets, as well as two helipads.

The air traffic control service, which will be run by Ferronats (a company that Ferrovial and NATS, the British provider of air navigation services to control towers at nine other Spanish airports, have shares in) will include the final descent stage and the initial take-off, as well as the movement of aircraft on the ground.
