By airplane

Mallorca, close to you

The easiest and fastest way to get to the island is by plane, as Palma de Mallorca Airport (PMI), also known as Son Sant Joan International Airport, is the third most important Spanish airport and one of the best connected airports in the Mediterranean. The airport is a gateway for the majority of visitors to Mallorca and operates 365 days a year, although the volume of flights is concentrated in the summer, connected to a multitude of destinations, with over 70 airlines operating at the airport. The main European capitals are less than 3 hours away by plane, Madrid is 1 hour away and Barcelona 30 minutes, approximately.



The airport consists of a single passenger terminal and three floors. On the ground floor, you can find the Arrivals Hall, where there are several vehicle rental bureaus, the Mallorca Tourist Information Office, a Meeting Point and Lost and Found, among other services.

On floor 2 you can find the Check-in area, the VAT refund office for non-EU residents, as well as other services that can be found in the airport’s practical guide.

On floor 4 you can find the Exits, security control, duty free shop area and the gates.


Covered general car park can be found in front of the terminal. The fourth floor of the car park connects directly with the terminal’s departures via a tunnel. There is also a long stay parking with free shuttle bus to the terminal (4 minutes).


At the Arrivals exit is a taxi rank, a tour operator transfer service and bus stops for buses to and from the capital, to Platja de Palma (EMT Bus, lines A1 and A2) and to several other areas around the island (Aerotib, lines A11, A32, A42 and A51).

The airport is located 8 km from the centre of the capital, Palma, and a few kilometres from the tourist areas of Platja de Palma and s'Arenal.


The airport has an assistance service for people with reduced mobility, in both the Departures and Arrivals areas, which must be arranged online. To ensure the service’s provision, it is recommended that you arrange it a minimum of 48 hours before your departure.

On all floors of the general car park you can find spaces reserved for people with reduced mobility.
