Palma Airport Bus
The Palma airport bus is a very popular choice of transport and transfer for passengers arriving at the airport, as it is cost effective (especially if you are travelling alone) and it is very reliable. There are two main buses that run on a regular basis from the airport (bus number 1 and bus number 21) and these buses connect passengers with the city of Palma itself and also with the nearest holiday resorts to Palma airport which are Can Pastilla and S.Arenal.
Bus number 1 runs from the airport to Palma and from Palma to the airport.
Bus number 21 runs from the airport to S.Arenal via Can Pastilla and then from S.Arenal to the airport via Can Pastilla.
The buses run constantly throughout the day and the beauty of the Palma Airport bus is that it does not take long to reach Palma and the nearby resorts of Can Pastilla and S.Arenal. The buses run on a continuous loop system back and forth to the airport, which means you never really have to wait that long for a bus, unless it is very full and you have to wait for the next one.
Tip: On your return journey ensure you leave plenty of time to catch the bus back to the airport and also ensure that you know where to catch the bus on your return
journey (this may sound silly but it does happen that people stand waiting for the bus at the wrong stop!). This will ensure you do not end up being pushed for time should you miss the first bus or have to wait for the next bus if the one you wanted to catch was full.
Where Do I Catch The Palma Airport Bus
The Palma Airport Bus departs from outside the airport opposite the Main Arrivals terminal at Palma De Mallorca airport. You can exit the main arrivals area through any of the exit doors (that are numbered) and you will see the overhead sign posts for the public buses. If you exit the main Arrivals area through ‘Exit number 4’, which is in the centre of the Main Arrivals area, then the bus stop is directly opposite across the car park. You will need to walk along the long covered walkway to reach the bus stop or you can step on the travelator that is in place to assist your journey.
