Always allow yourself plenty of time when travelling through Palma airport as the departure gates can be a long distance away and security checks can take a long time, especially during the summer months. Some departure gates are a 15 minute walk away, so be prepared to walk; there is assistance on hand for those who need it, just ask at the information desks. Once you have checked in on the ground floor you will need to go up one floor to security. There are two security areas at either end of the building and both lead to the same place.
There are ATMS on the ground floor and first floor of the airport, but none once you have gone through security. There is a small but well stocked chemist on the same floor as the security check as well as a post office.
Shopping facilities are limited although there are several duty free shops and one Gourmet Food shop called ‘Delicies de ses Illes’ where you can purchase Mallorcan food products to take home as gifts. There are plenty of food and drink options available before and after the security checks.
WiFi is available at the airport at selected points, look out for the WiFi zone signs. There are also coin operated internet access machines some of which also have printers available.
There are two VIP rooms at the airport which offer free access to Business class passengers or special card holders. If you are travelling on a VIP ticket you will also be able to go through a different security check. This is located on the same floor as the check in desks.
There is ample parking space at the airport and you can park for free for the first 20 minutes. Parking your car for longer periods within the official is surprisingly reasonable – especially if you’re used to paying extortionate rates in your home country. The general car park is situated on floors 2 and 3, and stays of 20 days cost from 2.70 euros per day. There are other options, including an express car park and a long stay car park, located 4 minutes’ from the terminal building via free shuttle bus. Consult aena.es for details and to book.
