There are a number of flight routes and airlines that have already announced plans to fly in and out of Corvera Murcia airport. As the airport will replace San Javier airport and will also be run by AENA, it is largely expected to cover most, if not all of the existing routes dealt with at San Javier, but with the additional scope to handle many more routes too.
