Palma airport to receive extensive upgrade as Mallorca remains destination of choice

As the beautiful Balearic island of Mallorca continues to entice sun seeking travelers to its shores, AENA have recently announced plans for an expansion project at Palma’s international airport. Between now and 2021, Spain’s air navigation management company will invest almost €297 million in extending the airport, known as Son Sant Joan, to accommodate an increasing number of flights.

Already the third largest airport in Spain, behind Madrid and Barcelona, AENA have estimated Son Sant Joan will receive 28.5 million passengers in 2021. This investment will develop the terminal buildings to create space for the growing number of passengers, as well as the airport’s runway efficiency to increase the number of flights per day.

And with the recent revelation that BBC drama The Night Manager will be returning for a second series, Mallorca’s beauty could once again be showcased on the small screen. The first series that was filmed around Palma, Llucmajor, Cala Deia and Port de Sóller, attracted over 6 million viewers last spring and was even nominated for 6 Emmys in 2016.

Providing the idyllic setting for a holiday home, leading Spanish homebuilder Taylor Wimpey España, offer a beautiful selection of properties on Mallorca with something to suit the requirements of each individual. Their most recent addition to the landscape, only a short 20 minute drive from the Son Sant Joan airport, is the gorgeous Cala Vinyes Hills.

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey España, is excited about what opportunities the AENA investment could bring to the island and is looking forward to welcoming a growing number of visitors to Mallorca. He comments,

“We have certainly experienced a growing interest in property on Mallorca as it becomes a prominent must-visit destination for travelers from across the globe. And it’s fantastic that Mallorca is enjoying such a boom in its reputation as a filming location.

“The fantastic weather and range of stunning locations provide an ideal environment for shooting everything from adverts to films and the island is fast becoming one of the entertainment industry’s favourite locales, which in turn increases it’s attraction as a holiday home destination.

“As popularity for the island continues to grow we are determined to provide an array of high quality properties in locations that reflect the best of Mallorca’s culture as well as its coastline.”
