British Airways is to suspend its summer seasonal route from London Heathrow to Murcia.

The route to Murcia San Javier airport launched in 2017 and is currently scheduled to operate twice weekly until Saturday 27 October 2018.

It was due to return from 2 April 2019 to 26 October 2019. However, the route has now been suspended in its entirety.

Murcia San Javier airport (airport code MJV) is in fact due to close to scheduled passenger flights in the coming months. Another airport serving the region, Corvera, also known as Región de Murcia International Airport (airport code RMU), is currently scheduled to open to passenger flights in early 2019. easyJet is to transfer operations to Corvera from the summer of 2019.

Passengers whose flights have been cancelled are entitled to a full refund. Passengers can also travel to an alternative BA destination in Spain such as Barcelona, Madrid, Malaga or Valencia. However, any consequential costs such as ground transportation will be at your expense.

When BA has previously suspended summer seasonal routes, it has secured rebooking options on alternative carriers. However, these were on network carriers via their hubs in mainland Europe – who don’t currently serve Murcia – and not on low cost airlines that fly direct from London.

  1. What a scandalous editorial. The airlines operating from the UK are reacting to a 25% drop in the pound caused by the BREXIT vote and then a drop in business to Spain. Whether the airport is 20 minutes from the coast or 5 minutes is utterly irrelevant people care going to Egypt, Turkey etc cause it’s cheaper. NOTHING TO DO WITH CORVERA.

    1. All to do with Corvera, when airlines are actually increasing ALICANTE! That’s because Corvera offers no advantage over Alicanate for the many people around the Torrevieja area that used San Javier, which DID offer an advantage. No brainer really!
