Transfer from the airport of Palma de Mallorca
Getting from Palma de Mallorca Airport to the city center
Planning a vacation in Mallorca – the most popular destination in the Mediterranean? Your holiday is bound to be perfect! This island is renowned for its beautiful coastline and stunning beaches. Yet Mallorca can offer you more than that. From secluded natural beauties to the rich variety of nightlife activities, from an astonishing range of cave systems to the most vibrant and lively nightclubs — in Mallorca you get it all.
The island is served by only one airport, which goes by three different names — Palma Airport, Son Sant Joan Airport and Palma de Mallorca Airport, so don’t get confused, it’s actually all the same.
The airport is in Mallorca’s capital — Palma. Being the third-busiest airport in Spain, followed by Madrid and Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca Airport handles almost 30 million passengers every year. During peak months in summer, it’s one of the busiest airports in Europe.
Being situated about 8 km away from the city center, the airport provides several modes of transportation.
Some hotels in Palma offer free shuttles from the airport, so before arranging a transfer to your accommodation check this information first.
In case your hotel doesn’t provide this service, you can book a private transfer directly to your hotel from the airport.
There is another option of shared transfers, that are more cost-efficient, yet you’ll have to wait for other passengers and there is always a possibility you’ll be the last one to be dropped off.
The only public transport that is directly connected to the airport is regular bus lines. Line A1 departs from the Arrivals area on Level 0. The bus runs every 10 minutes. Be careful, the bus doesn’t operate the whole night. Check the time beforehand. One-way ticket costs €5. The average journey time to the city center is 30 minutes.
Taxi ranks can be found outside the airport. Ordering a taxi is the least stressful way to reach the city center. Especially so, if you're getting off a long international flight, you might not have the energy to drag around your heavy bags. The taxi ride will take about 15 minutes, and it will cost you €21.
If you don’t want to waste your time at the airport struggling to arrange your way to Palma, you can book a transfer in advance to better suit your arrival time at Palma Airport.
