Flights to Palma are available from a number of different UK Airports. The last time I was there in the Spring the tourists were predominantly Germans who were there on sightseeing holidays with the majority of airlines flying on to the Island from Spanish and German airports.
it is the third busiest airport in Spain during the summer months (after Madrid and Barcelona) with British visitors tending to go there more for a beach holiday during the hotter summer moths.
If you are visiting from the UK you can fly to Palma Airport from Birmingham International, Bristol, Glasgow International, Liverpool John Lennon, London Gatwick, City, Stansted and Manchester with Ryanair, easyJet, Monarch and Cityflyer Express airlines.
Most European countries operate flights into Palma, with Germany being the predominant one with the most airports and airlines (Air Berlin, Germanwings, TUIfly GMBH Langenhagen and NL Luftfahrt GMBH).
When you land at the airport and enter the arrivals before security zone this is the same area that you will end up in when you leave.
There is a great selection of shops (including duty free) and places to get something to eat and drink ranging from tapas bars to Burger King and sit down restaurants.
For your onward travel the transport links are very good offering a large taxi rank with cars lined up in the car park, regular buses into the city centre, private transfers or a range of car hire companies to choose from. There is no railway on the island.
It is best to pre-book your rent a car in advance to cut down in time spent filling in paperwork when you land. You can also order any "extrras" at this stage like baby seats or child restraints to be fitted. If you pre-book a private transfer the driver will be waiting for you in a pre-arranged point in the main arrivals hall to escort you to your vehicle to drive you to your holiday destination.
