Record number of flights for end-October. | Archive

Between Thursday, October 27, and this coming Tuesday, Palma Son Sant Joan Airport will handle a total of 3,550 flights (arrivals and departures). Over the comparable period of 2019, there were 2,388 flights. The number of passengers will exceed 600,000 - a record number.

Although Tuesday is a national holiday, the demand is principally foreign. Half-term holidays, such as in some of the German Länder, continue next week, a factor provoking this demand. Tour operators say that a high number of last-minute bookings have contributed to this end-October record. The fine weather in Mallorca has also been a consideration.
