The airport to resorts bus service will restart at the beginning of next month. The forecast is that the number of passengers this season will exceed the 180,000 who were carried in 2017.
Jaume Mateu, the government's transport director-general, says that in June there will be a publicity campaign through local media (press and radio) directed at residents and another via social media and digital newspapers for European visitors.
Aerotib, the name of the service, has also been promoted at the travel and tourism fairs in London and Berlin. Mateu adds that after the first year's experience, the government considers the service to be established. He expects higher passenger numbers because tourists, tour operators and airport workers are all more aware of it.
The routes will be as in 2017: to Alcudia Bay; Cala d'Or; Cala Millor; and Calvia (Palmanova, Magalluf, Santa Ponsa, Paguera). The latter route had the highest usage last year - 80,000 passengers. A reason for this was the use made of the service by airport workers who live in Calvia.
A new route, to Cala Ratjada, will be introduced in 2019 as part of the overhaul of bus service concessions in Majorca.
