Facilities are primitive and limited in this small basic terminal. Our flight arrived 25 minutes early-we then waited 35 minutes for our luggage. Smokers should note that cigarettes are not sold in the shops either at check-in or past security. They sell a very limited supply of spirits and wine only. There are unlimited opportunities to buy a property in the region both on arrival and departure. Public transport to and from the airport is very limited. Direct buses run to Murcia City in the afternoon and evening only-tickets available for sale in the terminal-Visa and Mastercard only-no cash. There is no local bus service to the airport. If you are going to Murcia or Cartagena take a taxi to San Javier and pick up a bus there. Taxi prices are not displayed. Taxis to the local resort of Lo Pagan will take the long fast expensive motorway route rather than the short fast cheap route on the local road.
