Palma de Mallorca Airport (PMI) Information

(Mallorca / Majorca, Balearic Islands, Spain)

Image of an aeroplaneThe Balearic Island of Mallorca enjoys a steady flow of sunny traffic from holiday makers, with a high percentage of all its visitors choosing to fly here. Located close to the capital of Palma, the Palma de Mallorca Airport began its life in the 1920s, when a small collection of seaplanes flew from here to deliver post.

Today, the island's airport has grown to cater to just under an average of two million travellers each month, with many passengers flying to and from English, German and Spanish cities. Following a considerable injection of cash, 1997 was the year that the new terminal was completed, allowing a more organised structure of 'modules' to be adopted by the resident airlines, of which there are around 60 in total. Ryanair offers by far the largest selection of onward destinations, followed by Air Berlin, EasyJet, Thomas Cook and Thomson Airways.

Operated by Empresa Municipal de Transports (EMT), buses connect both the port and the city centre (Placa Espanya), departing roughly four times per hour, between 06:15 and 02:30. Bus stops can be found on the Arrivals level, opposite the car park, and make many stops along the route. Direct express buses between Palma and the airport are also available if you are in a rush.


Car rental companies are based within the Arrivals area and offer competitive rates, although prices are generally at their cheapest when booked ahead. Those driving to Palma will be able to reach the island capital in under 20 minutes, with the majority of this route taking in the Autovia de Levante (Ma-19).
