Palma de Mallorca Airport (also known as Son Sant Joan Airport) lies 8km south of the island's capital, Palma, and is the third biggest airport in Spain.
It has one central terminal building, with Arrivals on the ground floor and Departures on the second floor. The terminal leads to gates in four 'module' buildings:
Note: The airport can be very busy, especially in summer months, so be prepared for heavy crowds and limited seating.
Don't hang around
Even though there's just one terminal, the airport is pretty large! Allow enough time to catch your flight: after passport control, it's at least a 10-15 minute walk to your gate, and 20 minutes to the furthest building, Module C.
There is no train from Palma Airport, but the local EMT buses are cheap and comfortable, and offer a regular, reliable service. Or, your hotel may offer a shuttle service.
There are two main bus routes away from Palma Airport:
Once you're at Placa d'Espanya station (also known as Estacio Intermodal), you can change to trains and buses to other destinations on the island. For Magaluf, take Lines 104, 106 or 107. For Santa Ponsa, take Lines 102, 103 or 104.
Cost: EUR 5 one-way
Buying tickets: On the bus (drivers won't take anything bigger than EUR 10 notes)
Location: Bus stops at Arrivals, Level 0 and Departures, Level 2
To reach other destinations, or if you're travelling in a group, with a lot of luggage, a taxi may be a better option.
Cost: Around EUR 15-20 to Placa d'Espanya (surcharges for luggage and journeys after 21:00)

If you need information of any sort, always keep an eye out for the people in blue jackets – these customer service personnel are stationed on the second floor to assist passengers with anything they might need.
Car rental companies are all located in the arrivals hall, ground floor.
One of the most untouched villages on Mallorca is Fornalutx, up in the mountains. Reach it by foot through terraced orange and lemon groves, or by road. Here you'll find not a hint of hotel bustle. Ask at the Airport Info Desks by Check-in and at Arrivals for details. Fornalutx is 30 minutes away by taxi and great for a quick layover.
If you've got a quick (three-hour) layover, but not quite enough time to get into Palma, jump in a cab to nearby Can Pastilla, with its great selection of bars and restaurants. You'll be there in 15 minutes. La Taberna de Manu is said to have the best paella in Mallorca.
Up on the third floor, before you go through security, there's a free terrace where smoking is allowed. It's bright and airy, with benches and a glass roof so you don't need to worry about rain. It covers the length of the arrivals/check-in levels.
