Aer Lingus flights San Javier - Dublin

The regions of Alicante and Murcia are popular destinations with holidaymakers from the UK and Ireland, as well as other parts of Europe too.

For the majority of visitors to these areas, the main destination airport is that of Alicante-Elche, although for many, flying into Murcia’s airport at San Javier would be preferable due to the closeness of popular holiday destinations such as Torrevieja, the Orihuela Costa and the Mar Menor area.

However, often, this isn’t possible due to a lack of routes flying into the airport.

Nevertheless, there is good news for holidaymakers from Ireland as Aer Lingus has just announced a new regular route linking the San Javier-Murcia airport with the Irish capital.

From now on until 9 October 2016, there will be regular flights to Dublin on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

These which will be added to the routes already supplied by Ryanair, making a total of 10 weekly flights to the Irish capital from Murcia airport each week.

The councillor for Economic Development, Tourism and Employment within the regional government of Murcia, Juan Hernández, commented that he hoped the new Dublin-Murcia route would help improve the airport’s connectivity as well as promote greater tourism in the region.

And, a greater number of international visitors equals a greater revenue for the region’s coffers, as the international tourist spends on average 43% more than visitors from other parts of Spain (85,70 euro a day compared to 60 euro).

Last year, visitor numbers to the region of Murcia went up by 7.1%, which is more than 2% higher than the national average increase of 4.9%. Murcia received 862,295 international tourists in total, and figures for this year seem to be on par with those registered during the first three months of last year too.

Between January and February, San Javier airport registered a total of 39,051 passengers passing through, which is approximately 4% more than for the same period of 2015.
