The Regional Ministry of Land, Energy and Mobility, in collaboration with the Municipal Council of Palma, is providing a public transport information service in the arrivals terminal at the airport.
This information point is mobile and is located in front of the gates of the baggage reclaim area. Local Government staff are on hand to advise on the different public transport options available to travellers at the airport. There will be information on EMT buses, as well as the Aerotib routes and the official taxi service.
This will enhance the information currently available from the Council of Mallorca’s tourist information point and from the different information boards located both inside and at the relevant stops.

30,000 people have now opted to use the regular public airport bus service since the summer timetable came into operation, on 1 May, up until 10 June. During the same period in 2017, 19,300 people, consisting of both tourists and residents, chose to use one of the four Aerotib routes to travel from the airport to various areas and municipalities of Mallorca.
To date, the route A11 Peguera-Magaluf has been the most popular, with 17,188 passengers, followed by the A32 Can Picafort – Platja de Muro/Alcúdia, with 8,938 users, and the A51 Cala d’Or – s’Arenal de Llucmajor, with 3,089. The A42, which connects the airport with the area of Cala Bona and Cala Millor, started operating its summer timetable on 1 June and has so far carried 945 passengers. The busiest day was 5 June, with 1,116 passengers.
Aerotib began operating in May 2017 and has provided an uninterrupted service ever since, with a reduced service over the winter and increasing from 1 May. Aerotib is fully integrated into Mallorca’s TIB regular transport network. Regular users can therefore make use of the intermodal card and benefit from the discounts that this offers, as well as the T20 and T40 multi-trip tickets. This public service is provided by three companies in terms of risk and expense and as such incurs no additional cost for the public administration.
