ARE YOU PARKED AT SAN JAVIER?

SAN JAVIER

The management team of San Javier Airport has given one month´s notice to the owners of 17 vehicles that they are classing as “abandoned”, amongst which are a BMW, a Volvo, a Renault, a Toyota and several Ford cars, plus a Mercedes 190.

The vehicles are all parked at the airport, and have been for some time, and therefore the notice is given for the owners to collect and remove them, or they will take action to do so themselves.

The resolution states that after the one month period, if the vehicles are not removed, the airport authority will “inform the provincial traffic headquarters for processing by an authorized group as waste”.

So if you have parked at the airport for any length of time, or if you simply can´t remember where you parked, it might be worth checking out this collection, before they are taken away for good, and possibly given to a new, “worthy” home.
