Your Nice-Palma de Mallorca direct flight
If you are flying with easyJet, Nice-Mallorca flights leave from Terminal 2. However, if you choose Iberia, your holiday in the Balearic Islands starts at Terminal 1.
In both cases, to avoid stress, allow plenty of time for security checks and arrive at Nice Côte d’Azur Airport at least an hour before your flight takes off. We strongly recommend that you allow an extra quarter of an hour if you need to go to your airline check-in desk to get your boarding pass or put bags in the hold.

Arriving in Palma de Mallorca
Your Nice-Palma de Mallorca flight lands at Son Sant Joan Airport, which is barely 11 kilometres from the city. The biggest airport in the Balearic Islands and the third largest in Spain, it is connected to the centre of Palma by:
- The bus: for a few euros, bus line 1 will take you to Plaza España in 20 minutes maximum. Buses run from 04:45 to 01:00 in the morning (02:00 in the high season). For the other towns and villages on the island, take the Aerotib buses (four different routes).
- Taxis: these are better value than in France and can be found in the airport’s Arrivals hall. Avoid the many “pirate” taxis that approach visitors in the terminal. They are cheaper but not insured!
- Road: There are 7 car rental companies in the Arrivals hall of the terminal. A good solution if you want to explore the Balearic Islands more widely.

What is the best time of year to visit Palma de Mallorca?
Some people drink their coffee hot, while others prefer to wait until it cools down a little. The same applies for Palma de Mallorca. Some fans of the Balearic Islands prefer summer and aren’t happy unless temperatures are around or even over 30°. These holidaymakers enjoy sunny days on the beach and long dips in the lovely water. Then, in the evening, there are festivities, concerts and festivals: the Virgen del Carmen Festival in Port d’Andratx, which is a charming spectacle, the Sa Pobla Jazz Festival which is known for its excellent programme, the Chopin Festival in Valldemossa for musical mastery and romance… However, for many other visitors, Palma de Mallorca is at its most attractive in spring or late autumn. The weather is pleasant, and although the sea is a little cool, this is a much better time to discover the heart of the island, its nature and its lovely villages. In any case, Mallorca never sleeps, because its people love to celebrate! The Easter processions, Pollença Wine Fair (in April), the Feast of Corpus Christi (60 days after Easter) when the courtyards of Palma open to the public for concerts, saints’ festivals in June, celebrations surrounding the grape harvest in September, Alcúdia Fair in October… So how do you like your coffee?
