TRAVELLERS wanting to fly to Majorca this winter have been grounded by a drastic cut in the number of flights to the island.
Low-cost operators BMI baby and Easyjet have both cut services from the UK, while charter operator Thomsonfly will suspend all flights from early January until the end of February.
Budget carrier Ryanair will also halt operations from Palma from November 4 to December 19.
East Midlands-based BMI baby will now fly just twice each week from its home airport, Birmingham, Cardiff and Manchester - a cut of almost 50 per cent capacity on the previous year.
Easyjet announced earlier this year that it was trimming its winter flight schedule from its nine UK airports to Palma, but the cutbacks have come as a shock to the many Majorca residents wanting to book trips back to the UK during the winter months.
