Palma de Mallorca airport, located 8 kilometers from the city, is the gateway for millions of tourists who visit the island. It is the third largest airport in Spain and is the best connected in the Mediterranean, since it has the largest number of non-stop flights in the entire area, with more than 180 routes.
The strategic location of the island (a few hours away by flight from the main European cities), together with its safety and the variety and quality of its services have made airlines and tour operators commit to maintaining and even increasing their operations on the island, making Mallorca today one of the most attractive destinations not only for European holiday tourism, but also for the MICE industry, and especially for large international congresses and conferences, which seek well-connected locations capable of attracting people across the continent.
The Palma Congress Center is located just 10 minutes by car from the airport and can be reached by public transport, using the A1 bus line. Another one of the many advantages offered by the destination to attract the growing MICE demand.
In addition, it is the Spanish airport with the highest number of new routes this year, the most outstanding being the Palma- New York/Newark, thanks to the commitment of United Airlines, which opens the door to a new highly desired public, such as it's the American.
In the first six months of 2022, the airport has recovered 92.5% of travelers from 2019, thus returning to pre-pandemic normality. The percentage increases to 96.4% considering only the month of June.
The main destinarions are Barcelona, Madrid, Dusseldorf and Frankfurt. By nationality, Germany is the country with the most passenger arrivals, followed by Spain and the United Kingdom.
In addition, the airports of the Balearic Islands, committed to the fight against climate change, have taken another step towards environmental sustainability by increasing their level of Airport Carbon Accreditation certification to Level 3 "Optimization", a program that evaluates and recognizes the efforts of airports to manage and reduce their CO2 emissions.
From June 4 to 9, The Palma Convention Center will be transformed into a space for sustainability in the aquatic environment with this congress titled Resilience and Recovery in Aquatic Systems.
The most important international film industry event in Mallorca returns this year from October 18 to 24 to celebrate its 12th edition.
The city of Palma is the result of centuries of history marked by the different cultures that inhabited the city. One of them, which had an important political and economic weight on the island, was precisely the Jewish community.
