PALMA
LOW cost airline easyJet is to use its new flight centre at Madrid-Barajas airport to expand its domestic flight service in Spain.
Yesterday, Europe's leading low-fares airline unveiled its first three domestic routes including a daily service between Palma and the Spanish capital.

In early February, easyJet will launch its twice daily flights between Madrid and Oviedo and Madrid Asturias with the Palma-Madrid service taking-off on February 26 with fares starting at euros 25.99 (including taxes), one way, and the 50 percent resident discount is applicable, easyJet sources in Madrid stated yesterday.

BOOM easyJet, which sparked the low-cost revolution and independent/residential holiday boom in the Balearics over a decade ago, is now looking to service the Spanish business commuter and domestic holiday markets.

Last year Majorca was one of the most popular destinations for Spanish holidaymakers - never mind the British.
The airline maintains that it is launching its domestic services by connecting three of the most “commercially active” regions of Spain with Madrid and more domestic routes are being planned from their new hub at Barajas airport. For Balearic residents, the choice of low-cost domestic flights to the mainland, and beyond, is continuing to grow. easyJet and Air Berlin are taking the initiative and providing the Spanish domestic airlines with serious competition most are unable to keep up with.

Not only is Palma now linked to numerous destinations on mainland Spain by European low cost airlines, Balearics residents will soon be able to catch connecting flights to Morocco, Italy and France, for example, via Madrid with easyJet.

HUB
Air Berlin offers a similar flight connection service out of its hub here in Palma. easyJet has also announced new flights between the UK and the Balearics.
The airline is going to link Ibiza with Belfast, Luton, London and Glasgow this summer while new flights will be flying into Palma from Edinburgh. easyJet currently flies to 73 airports in 19 European countries and operates 267 routes with its fleet of 120 planes. Over the past 12 months it has carried over 33 million passengers.
