The number of passengers processed annually by Murcia-San Javier Airport has increased considerably over the last few years. In 2006, the airport processed 1.6 million passengers, whereas in 2004 it only processed half that many passengers! The service level is by no means high enough to handle this growth. There are many complaints from passengers about the quality of service. There is talk of building an entirely new airport for Murcia.
There is no train connection to the airport. The airport is located 45 kilometres to the south-east of Murcia. By bus it will take you 45 minutes to get to the city, but there are only three buses a day.
At the airport there are no hotels. The number of shops and places to eat and drink is limited. In addition, the shop owners close their shops at peculiar times. The airport also does not have any business facilities. There are exchange offices and cash machines, and there is a play area for children.
In the aviation industry Murcia - San Javier Airport is indicated with the abbreviations MJV (IATA airport code) and LELC (ICAO airport code).
