Discover Palma Airport Departures
Palma de Mallorca Airport (IATA abbreviation: PMI), also known as Son Sant Juan Airport, is the busiest holiday airport in Europe. In 2019, almost 30 million passengers used the airport with over 100 thousand Mallorca airport departures. It is the third largest airport in Spain, after Madrid and Barcelona. It is also known as Son Sant Joan Airport. The airport is located 5 miles east of the city of Palma.
The first Palma airport departures took place in 1921 for post flights. Flights for tourists only took place in 1935 to Madrid via Valencia. Pretty soon the airlines Lufthansa and Iberia started to carry out Palma departures. It was first located in Son Bonet and later in 1958 a new base was started which is now Palma de Mallorca Airport. International traffic only started from 1960. Due to its popularity, the airport has been continuously expanded and improved. Passenger traffic growth was the last two decades slow but steady to an 28.7 million in 2019. Because it’s a popular holiday destination and corona hit Europa there have been a big drop in Palma flight departures to European destinations. Only 6.1 million passengers for the year 2020. The domestic flights were still going although less frequent. The cancellation of many flights from Europe will hopefully start again in summer 2021.

It is primarily intended for flights that are Non-Schengen as well as destinations in Ireland and the UK. For these routes there are largely seasonal flights, which means that this part is often not open in the winter.

- Module C is to the east and the largest with 33 gates to depart from. Here are Palma de Mallorca airport departures to Schengen countries by the airlines Easyjet, Condor and Norwegian Air.
