The Balearic parliament will today debate  plans by the Spanish government to sell off  49 percent of their stake in the National Airport Operator, AENA. The move is proving controversial especially as Palma airport is one of the most profitable in the country. Already numerous financial institutions have said that they would be willing to buy part of the airport authority. Airlines have said that the airport should be privatised. They have also called for airport landing fees to be lowered in the winter to attract more low season flights.
