Flights to Murcia

Murcia may not be a popular Spanish destination, but it holds its own with beautiful beaches, delicious wine and some of the best food in the country. Murcia now has a new airport with a large capacity and several direct flight routes available from the UK, so it’s easy for travellers to reach. The airport is located in the city, which offers great travel opportunities to Alicante, Elche and many more nearby resorts.

Which is the main airport in Murcia?

The city of Murcia has recently gained a new airport: Región de Murcia International Airport (RMU), also known as Murcia-Corvera. Located in the city itself, this modern airport replaces the former hub of Murcia–San Javier Airport. A fast, frequent bus service runs from the airport to the city centre. There are also buses available to Cartagena and other nearby locations in the region. Restaurants, coffee shops, retail outlets and free WiFi are just a few of the amenities passengers will find here.

Which airlines offer flights to Murcia?

Three airlines fly direct to Murcia from the UK: easyJet, Jet2 and Ryanair. easyJet and Ryanair both offer non-seasonal flights throughout the year, covering a range of departure airports (including London Gatwick, Bristol and Manchester). Ryanair also has seasonal routes from other UK airports such as Bournemouth and Glasgow, while Jet2 only offers seasonal flights.

Why travel by plane to Murcia?

For convenience, speed and flexibility, flying is the best way to travel to Murcia. The newly built airport is located in the city itself just a short distance from the main action, so travellers don’t have to deal with time-consuming and costly transfers. Direct flights from the UK arrive in less than three hours, making plane the quickest method of travel to Murcia. Plus, with non-seasonal direct flights available from eight UK airports, holiday-goers can travel when they like from where they like.

Before you travel to Murcia by plane - good to know!

One unmissable location for summer tourists is Murcia’s San Pedro del Pinatar salt flats, where travellers can spot flocks of grey and white flamingos in migration. The nearby mud baths are a great place to give oneself a DIY mineral mud treatment, though there’s also the option for a professional mud massage at the Archena spa in the city. Murcia is a very small city, so most locations can be explored on foot within the hour. For the longer journeys or tired days, there is a regular bus service available.
