One Busy Airport
A large number of tourists arrive here annually; like 6 million, so it goes without saying the airport could get crowded in peak tourist season. It also is a stop off connection to many places in Europe which adds to the traffic. Shops inside are very upscale looking and all are duty free, and well publicized.

Bus to town from the airport
When you arrive at PMI airport just keep following the signs to customs/ exit and you leave the airport building Here. Youa re faced with a travelator, a road, and then another travalator.
Once you have takenonly the first travalator, do NOT take the other one but get the #1 Palma bus into town. The cost is Eu2 one way - try to have the right money, the drivers will not change anything bigger than Eu 10.
It takes about 15 minutes to reach the centre, I alighted at Placa d'Espana, only as it was convenient to meet up at. Suspect it is also about the most central - and the stop for the main bus station to the rest of the island

BY AIR Palma Airport,...
Palma Airport, situated 9 km from the city. Tel. 971-78 90 00 (switchboard) Telf. 971-26 26 00 (Iberia)
Getting to Palma (PMI) is very easy from most countries in Europe. Most major cities have regular charter, Low cost or scheduled flights to Palma, although these do reduce in the Winter months (November to March)
Flights from the United Kingdom and Germany are most prominent, the latter having daily shuttle flights to the likes of Berlin, Munich, Dusseldorf and Paderborn/Lippstadt with Air Berlin and Condor.
From the UK, Easyjet, bmi baby, Monarch Crown and JET2 are the best bets as they are cheap and frquent. Jet2 £41.40 from Leeds Bradford is a great price!!
easyjet, ryanair... flying for pennie it seems
since so many tourists visit mallorca, some even on the weekends from northern europe since they own homes there, it costs almost nothing to fly to this island from even the cloudiest and darkest edges of northern europe. it's really weird to spend only twenty or thirty euros on a roundtrip plane ticket. easyjet has very nice deals from germany and the uk
Probably the best way to get...
Probably the best way to get here is by plane, we have a very big airport and there're a lot of flights. You can also come by boat from Barcelona or Valencia, travel time goes from 2-3 h to around 8 h the slowest boat.
You can go walking to most places, but there're also buses.
The best way to get to Palma...
The best way to get to Palma is to fly. Good connections to all major Spanish and European cities. BEWARE- please allow plenty of time when you clear security to get to your boarding gate...it takes ages! If you struggle when walking distances, advise airport information to get you some assistance.
The other alternative is the ferry to the mainland (8 hours) or the catamaran (2.5 hours). Good links to the other islands of Ibiza (Eivissa) and Menorca (Mahon).
By foot, or if going a distance the bus is the best way to get around. Taxis are also reasonable.
To go to Mallorca Island you must take a plane, or a cruise ...
I took a plane in the Sá Carneiro Airport in Oporto, and i flew with SPANAIR, a Spanish airline.
It has a great service.
