Murcia San Javier Airport is situated on the northern shore of Mar Menor close to a small town called San Javier and just 47km (40 minutes) from the city of Murcia. It has good motorway connections to destinations along Southern end of the Costa Blanca and the Costa Calida lying between three major cities: Murcia, Cartagena and Torrevieja. It is also just a 30km drive from the La Manga area.
The A7 motorway runs across the Murcia region from Alicante to Puerto Lumbreras where it divides into the A92 to Huelva on the western side of Spain and the N340 to Almería and Andalucía
Murcia San Javier Airport is used by both civilian and military aircraft, and therefore only has limited availability for civil flights. Because of this a new regional airport is currently under construction in nearby Corvera and is due to open in 2010.
