The Balearics are to be linked to the mainland by two ferries being brought in to service by Trasmediterránea which is expanding its fleet. The two new ferries, each with a capacity for 1'000 passengers and 330 cars, will operate between Palma and the mainland ports of Valencia and Barcelona. The two new ships will also reduce the crossing times by an estimated two hours. The ferry company also announced yesterday that, during the high season, one of the new ferries will also operate a weekly service between Mahon in Minorca and Barcelona, setting sail from Mahon every Saturday and returning on the Sunday. The ferry which is to cover the Palma-Barcelona route arrived in the port of Barcelona earlier this week, while the new ship for the Valencia connection is expected at the end of this month.
