Palma de Mallorca Airport
Mallorca Airport or officially Palma de Mallorca Airport is the main airport on the Spanish island of Mallorca (sometimes called Majorca). The airport is 8kms away from the main city of Palma and it is the favored landing spot of 22 million passengers a year coming predominantly from Germany, Spain and the UK and Ireland. It is busy year round, however, there is a noticeable increase in passenger traffic during the summer season with a high volume of charter flights and Ryanair flights from all over Europe as well as the very popular routes from Barcelona, Madrid, Cologne and the UK. Due to the popularity of the airport and the constant increase in traffic, the airport is currently being expanded to cope with a higher capacity of 38 million passengers per year. Because it is really busy in the summer months especially, always try to have your onward journey planned before you get there.

Due to the number of charter flights and package holidays coming into Mallorca, many people have their transport organized in advance. Many more people choose car hire as their preferred transport choice in Mallorca. But if you wish to get public transport from the airport then there are buses, taxis and shuttle buses. There is a city bus which has two routes; route 1 goes to the City Port route 21 will go by hotels along Palma Beach, fares are €2.50 one way. Shuttle bus services are available to the resorts and there are also minibuses and private buses for hire, however, prices vary considerably on these, so search around before you book. Taxis are located at the airport terminal or can be pre-booked (expensive), don’t get them anywhere other than with these two options. All Mallorca airport taxis have a minimum €12 fare (including the airport supplement) and they will charge extra for packages or large luggage.
Mallorca is great because you can see so much of it in on short holiday, its big enough that there is loads to see and do, but small enough that you can enjoy day trips and shorter trips to see some great sites. From the airport you are less than a half hour drive from Illetas, Magaluf, San Agustin, Palma Nova, Port Nous, El Toro/Calvia; or 45 minutes from Santa Ponsa and only an hour from Alcudia, Cala D’Or or Puerto Pollensa. For a little exploration, we would recommend the coastal reserve of Mondrago Natural Park with its wetlands, white beaches and turquoise blue seas. Or drive op to the beautiful Cap de Formentor on the Northern Tip of Mallorca with stunning, dramatic scenery and sandy beaches.
