Direct bus transfer from Palma airport to your holiday destination
From May 3rd, Mallorca has made it possible to get a direct bus transfer from Palma airport to most holiday destinations on the popular island.
So far, it has been quite the struggle finding a transfer from the airport to destinations on coastline away from the Palma bay, especially if you travel by yourself.
The buses will be departing from across the arrival terminal of the airport, and there will be plenty of signs guiding you to the right bus.

New bus lines connects southwest, north and east with the airport
The first bus lines to be expanded, are A11 and A32.
A11, will connect Palma airport with the southwestern destinations of Magaluf and Peguera. The A32 bus line, will connect Palma airport with northern destinations of Port d’Alcúdia, Playa de Muro and Ca’n Picafort.
Starting June 1st, the all new bus A42 line will transfer happy holidaymakers of Cala Millor and Cala Bona directly from the airport and back. On June 15, the bus A51 starts connecting Palma airport with Cala d’Or (Santanyí) and El Arenal (Llucmajor).
Prices range between 5 – 12 euro, depending on destination transfer. The buses are called ‘AeroTIB’, a part of the Mallorcan public transportation network called TIB. This means, that if you already own a valid bus ticket for the buses in Palma, this works for the airport buses as well.
The government of the Balearic islands expect no less than approximately 330.000 bus passengers to make use of this new service.
