Airfare to Palma de Mallorca, Spain
Palma de Mallorca is the only true city on Mallorca, one of the Balearic Islands, located off the coast of Spain. While most of the travelers come here for the sun and sand, Palma also offers plenty of other things to do. The highlights include: Castell de Bellver, built on the ruins of a Muslim site and which contains a museum, Paseo Maritimo, the area along the port with plenty of bars, discos and restaurants, and the Historic Centre, with its churches and historical buildings.
When planning your flight to Palma de Mallorca, avoid flying over the weekend. That’s when most of the travelers choose to fly in order to maximize their vacation time. Instead, choose to fly on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday when the fares are lower. Also, don’t be afraid to schedule your flight at “weird” hours, either very early in the morning or late at night.
Fly into Barcelona or Valencia and then choose the ferry for the last leg of your trip.
Another way to save money is to fly into a major European hub, such as Paris, Amsterdam or London. From there you can choose a low-cost flight into Palma. Flights within Europe a typically short (rarely exceed two and a half hours) and many low-cost airlines also offer flights during the off season.
The well known airlines serve Palma but it is possible to save money if you choose a lesser-known airline. Iberia flies to Palma, but so do Air Berlin and EasyJet.
The most expensive tickets to Palma de Mallorca are always found during the peak travel season. But the weather here is nice even during the shoulder season. So, in order to save money, avoid flying in July or August. Also, avoid flying during festivals when the island gets crowded and the airfare increases.
