A delegation of 13 people from the European Parliament's Transport and Tourism Commission are visiting the islands between today and Friday, to investigate the transport network on the islands.

They will also meet the Balearic authorities and representatives from the tourism sector. The European Parliament's Spanish Office said that the aim of the visit was that the delegates could see at first hand the operation of the transport network on the island, as well as the policies being carried out in the region.

The delegates will meet representatives of the air transport sector today at 4.30pm in Palma airport.
Then, at 7pm they will be received by the leader of the Balearic Government, Jaume Matas, and other regional authorities.
Tomorrow, from 9am, the delegation will make an analysis of the traffic regulation system in Palma, car parks, cycle lanes and pedestrian areas, and at 11am they will visit the new intermodal station, which was inaugurated last week.

It is expected that the delegation will hold a press conference at midday, after this visit.
At 1pm the European delegation will go to Pollensa to see the port, and at 4.30pm they will continue to the Port of Alcudia, where they will meet the Port Authorities and representatives of the maritime sector.

On returning to Palma, at 8.45pm they will attend a reception given by Palma Council in the Town Hall. On Friday, their last day, the delegates will once again go to Palma station, but this time for the historic train ride from Palma to Soller, leaving at 8am. From there they will go to Valldemossa, where at midday they are expected to meet representatives of the tourism sector.
