Ana Pastor in Cartagena

Ana Pastor, the Minister of Development, said last week that agreement has now been reached with operator AENA for the closure of San Javier Airport.

She said that the operator had accepted the draft submitted to them by the Autonomous Community outlining the stepts that will effect closure of the popular airport.

However she also stated that "It still depends on legal services, but for my part, everything is OK." The statement was made during the Minister’s visit to Cartagena where she was meeting with City officials to discuss the progress of the AVE High Speed Train.

She said that the agreement provides for a period of six months between the opening of Corvera Airport and the closure of San Javier, as well as agreement to, and payment of, the compensation to Aena for the investments they have made in San Javier.

On the subject of the AVE the Minister said that it would arrive in Cartagena toward the end of next year, emphasizing that there is still a great deal of work to be carried out before the high speed network can connect the city with Madrid.

The new network will shorten the route between Cartagena and the capital by half hour, with a maximum travel time of 3.05 hours. It will also allow connection to the Mediterranean Corridor.

Spain is the second most advanced country in the world and the first in Europe in High Speed and it has the most modern and technologically advanced fleet of trains on the continent.
