| Been through Palma a few times now and I have to say this airport has treated us pretty well. We have always been around the tail end of the main summer season, so this was our first just inside peak tourist season. We were departing with Easyjet though concourse ‘A’. Arrival was late night/early morning and went off without a hitch. If coming to ‘A’, you are likely (but not exclusively) going to be flying with a tour company/low-cost airline and as such will be taken to/from the plane and terminal by bus, although there are still plenty of sky-bridges. It was a well enough run system with good efficiency and was done quickly. The terminal is well enough sign posted and immigration and baggage reclaim were also both fast and efficient. This was late at night as said, so can’t vouch for busier times. Right the way through to our Transunion bus connection to our final destination was fast, friendly enough and hassle free. On returning home it was largely the same experience. However when under pressure to meet a flight, I was much more conscious of just how far you have to walk from check-in to the gates, especially as we were the very furthest gate away (11 I think it was) in ‘A’. This was compounded a little by the check-in agents holding the queue for our flight before letting us join the main check-in/bag drop queue. This meant that by the time we dropped off our baggage, cleared security, and walked to the gate, there was about 10 mins before we boarded, so no time for coffee or even a brief glance at the shops. Also of note was that due to the layout there are security procedures to pass through (showing passport/boarding passes etc) on the way into concourse ‘A’ after you have done the main X-ray metal detector bit for hand luggage. This means that you cannot re-visit the duty-free or shopping facilities here and once through this second security point will be limited to the food and beverage offerings in concourse ‘A’ and your gate area. I believe this is to do with ‘A’ operating like an almost separate facility due to closing during the winter months when the tourist season is over.
