Corvera Airport Opens Soon

Well according to various reports the “new” (ahem, long overdue and problematic) state-of-the-art airport based near Corvera in the Murcia region is opening in January 2019… the first flights are already scheduled and available from the 15th January. It is set to replace the “old” Murcia airport at San Javier which will stop operating on the 14th January.

At the moment most flights seem to to be scheduled for northern Europe destinations such as Belgium, Norway and the U.K. I guess these are the lucrative markets and reflects in the popularity of the area to these nationalities, particularly with property buyers, tourism and golf tours. The latter should help the many struggling golf courses in that area.

Leeds, London, East Midlands, Manchester and Southampton look to be getting early flight plans. Ryanair is a main operator here.

Existing routes by TUIfly, Ryanair, and Easyjet that currently serve Murcia San Javier airport will automatically transfer to Corvera airport on the opening date.

Additional summer routes will be added throughout the year, with British carriers Jet2 operating services from Manchester and Leeds Bradford and there is plans in offering a seasonal summer charter from Southampton from 29th June 2019.

It’s early days but should help with flight planning and economic & employment growth to the area. As a result the local property market should benefit too. Home owners and builders will be hoping for an increase in demand.

Hondon to Corvera Airport is about 1hout 5 mins by car.

The new Murica Airport  is about an hour drive from the Hondon Valley areas so may offer an alternative to the main Alicante Airport for some. it is reported that airport fees are considerably less than Alicante to attract the major airlines.

The airport already has concessions on site for Food & Beverage operators, including a Costa Coffee, Subway, Semba restaurant, and a WHSmith outlet offering books, magazines, and light snacks. There will be Car Hire (Goldcar, Rhino Car Hire, Europcar, Centauro Rent a Car, and Avis).

Need more information? The airport has a website and Facebook page for up-to-date information and you can check your airline’s website for flight details and availability.


BREXIT? What to do next?

We recently attended and made notes at a local meeting in Hondón de los Frailes about BREXIT.  This was organised by the British Consulate, Alicante division. Our notes are below which may help some of you.

BREXIT for Expats in Spain

Yes, the situation as we write (Nov’ 2018) is still very fluid and subject to change and as yet there is no deal/ a deal is agreed between the UK and EU.

However, with time running out Brits abroad are worrying what they should do!

Of course Hondon Villas are no experts on what actually will happen, nor are we privy to any more information than anyone else. But we try to keep an eye on what could happen to protect our business and help new and existing clients.

With that in mind here are the things we picked out from the talk…

AIM of the Talk: For British citizens living in Spain to be ready for Brexit.

Citizens rights:
Brits that are over living here ‘legally’ can continue to do so as normal.
To be ‘legal’ you must hold a residencia. You can have lived here for less than 5 years but you still need a residencia.

Health Care:
If you have health care already in Spain via a S1 (pensioners) then you can continue to do so. If you have healthcare in Spain through any other means i.e S I P card then this continues also. The European health card ( EHIC) should not be used if you are living here permanently.

Time frames:
To achieve legal status (residencia) before December 2020 (if a deal is reached). To achieve legal status (residencia) before March 31st (if a deal is not reached).

Part time residents:
Maybe difficult for them to do 6 months Spain/UK. This group may have to choose which country they want to be resident in! Nothing has been agreed in the negotiations so far but may mean that if you are not resident legally in Spain there could be restrictions on the period of time they can reside per year.

Driving License:
Should not be driving on a UK driving license if living in Spain. You need a Spanish Driving license.

False info/scaremongering:
Anything written on any platform other than the Gov.UK site is not true.

Voting rights:
This was not included in the Brexit negotiations. However Spain and the British consulate are in discussions so hopefully Brits legally living in Spain will be able to vote in the local Spanish elections soon.

Spain/difficulties in registering:
This can be described as a bureaucratic country with regards getting your documents especially your residencia. However, this in the long term is good thing as it gives you a good footprint in Spain.

Gestores:
Due to the difficult nature/red tape of some of the paperwork needed to obtain some documents, the Spanish tend to use a Gestor who can, for a cost, sort out everything that is needed. Recommended, especially if yout Spanish is poor.

Other info
Facebook page ‘Brits in Spain’

Citizens Advice Spain – a voluntary website to help foreigners in Spain.

Brexpats– Formed to assist the Brits during Brexit. Not for/against Brexit just works with the consulate to help get info out to Brits in Spain. Brexpats is a legal and regulated association in Spain with 5,500 members to date. They also work with international lawyers and are hopeful that they can achieve the voters rights for Brits in Spain to vote in local elections.
Join : More members needed to increase their voice!

The message clearly was to make sure you are a legal British citizen in Spain before Brexit….the only way to achieve this is to have all your documentation but most importantly your residencia.

As we do not know as yet whether there is going to be a deal…I guess it would be sensible to recommend that we all get our paperwork sorted before March 31st 2019.

I hope this is helpful to you. Please consult official channels and not the local bar-room chitter. You can share your experiences on the Hondon Villas Facebook page

Recommended Agents in Hondón

After being in Hondon de los Frailes for just over a year now we would like to thank Mo and all the staff at Hondon Villas for their continued help settling into our new home and life in Spain. From the very beginning in March 2014 we found Mo to be very professional but she went beyond just being an agent and we now feel that all at Hondon Villas are friends and do not hesitate to call into the office just to say hello and we always feel welcome. We would certainly recommend them to anyone with confidence. : Janet & Mac Head


Hondon Valley Estate Agent

“We would like to thank Maureen of Hondon Villas for her friendly and professional approach …  At no time did we feel any pressure to buy and she gave us time to think. : Lindsey Stockdale


Dean and I would like to thank you for everything you did for us. Not only in the search and purchasing of our wonderful home, but all the help and advice you gave us even though Dean was here in Malaysia and I was ill in the UK, you kept us informed and virtually held our hand from the other side of the world.

It is always a nerve wrecking time when you are waiting to exchange contracts, but Maureen had the tricky task of juggling paperwork and emails between continents and 3 time zones.

All this was carried out with such amazing care and professional ism and we are so very grateful to you.

We had viewed dozens of houses with lots of agents in the Alicante region, but no one really listened to what we actually wanted or the fact that we definitely only had X amount of money to spend.

Hondon Villas were the only one to do so. Thank you for your patience Maureen, when Dean and I were choosing between two houses.

Seriously, without your care, commitment to detail and pure passion from you and your colleagues we would not have our lovely villa. We would also like you to know how much we appreciated your help and guidance in getting the internet connected, places to eat and local events not to miss.
– Sue & Dean Savage.


Your professionalism, passion and dedication for everything you do shines through and gives us your clients a service that is second to none. With 30 years in the industry coupled with your extensive local knowledge we would recommend you to anyone knowing they are in safe hands Moving to another country is one of the biggest decisions you make in your life and it’s comforting to know there are Professionals like you out there to help make the process pain free … your a pleasure to work with. – Charlotte and Billy
