British Airways has regular flights to Palma de Mallorca. Flights land at Son Sant Joan Airport, five miles east of Palma. After your flight to Palma, hop on the bus into the city centre and before long you'll be exploring Palma Old Town's medieval streets. Shake off the cobwebs after your Palma flight with a few tapas snacks along the buzzing Passeig Marítim seafront.
After Palma flights have landed, the easiest way into Palma's city centre is to take the bus to Plaça Espanya, which takes about 20 minutes. Buses leave every 15 minutes from outside Palma airport's Flight Arrivals. It's easy to stroll to hotels around Palma's Old Town but if you have heavy luggage, you can take a taxi from outside Palma airport's Flight Arrivals after your Palma flight. The journey takes between 20 and 40 minutes, depending on traffic, so allow plenty of time for your return flight from Palma.
After your flight to Palma, discover the city's medieval heart in the cobbled Old Town, and its vibrant, cosmopolitan vibe along Palma's seafront. Take your pick of Palma's sandy beaches nearby, including popular El Arenal and Can Pastilla to the east. Or go south-west from Palma for the party beach at Magaluf. Travel west of Palma for snorkelling in the crystal clear waters around Cala Basset, or take a daytrip from Palma to Portocristo's Coves del Drac in the west of Mallorca. Before your flight home from Palma, buy local cheese, sausages, wine and herby island liqueurs.
