Palma.—Palma's 365 Tourism Foundation said yesterday that one of the primary objectives for this year is to secure more and better Winter air links between Palma and the island's main markets such as the United Kingdom and Germany.

Palma Council sources said yesterday that the island is all but cut off during the low season and that is having a highly negative affect on business, tourism, commerce and the employment market.

The Foundation, which has already held talks with the British airline Jet2, intends to hold meetings with a total of 20 airlines in its attempt to secure a more varied Winter flight programme.

The Council intends to use the meetings to outline everything Palma has to offer as a Winter city break destination with the main shopping centre and museums now open every day of the year.

The Council will be working with the airport authority AENA which is also keen to see more traffic through Palma airport during the Winter.
Last Winter, there were more UK connections than ever but some airlines complained about the high airport operating fees.
