PALMA'S Son San Joan airport is braced for yet another record weekend.
Between this morning and Sunday evening, the airport will handle 358.700 passengers, six per cent more than during the same weekend last August.
AENA airport sources said yesterday that air traffic controllers will handle 2.428 flight movements over the weekend, 87 more than last year.
With regards to the next seven days, 671.300 passengers will be using Palma airport, 55.000 more passengers than last year.
An increase in the number of flights is also programmed for the next week.
Last weekend, Palma airport handled a record number of passengers and yesterday the Spanish association of airlines, AECA, said that this month and last, there has been a three to five percent increase in capacity demand. AECA president Felipe Navio said that the increase in demand is being fuelled by last minute seat and holiday bookings. The bulk of the demand is from the UK and Germany while a number of Spanish airlines have seen flight capacity increases on routes to the Caribbean.
