It was the best airport I’ve ever slept in. It was clean, calm (except for the time when some drunk Spanish guy started singing ‘coocoorukuku Palooooma!’). – Pesolek

PMI Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Palma de Mallorca Airport.

What to Expect

Palma de Mallorca Airport (code: PMI) is a large, modern, four-level terminal with four “modules” (A-D) and a combined 88 gates. Module A is primarily used for non-Schengen flights but is closed during the winter months. Module B, the smallest of the terminals, mainly operates regional flights. Module C primarily handles Schengen flights, and Module D serves a mixture. Note that while entry to the modules is on level 4, actual boarding may be on a lower level, so pay attention to the signs. There is a large variety of eateries and shops in the airport. However, many are located on the landside, so consider any food or shopping needs before going through security. WiFi is available to help pass the time. There are mobile charging stations, but one reader indicated that not all of them work.  Additional comfort may be found through fee-based access to one of the airport’s first-class lounges. See Airport Lounges in the guide below for locations and rates.

Sleeping in Palma de Mallorca Airport

palma de mallorca airport guideMost travellers who have slept overnight in this airport have reported safe and quiet conditions. Armrest-free seating is said to be hard to find.  Some reviewers found the seating hard and recommended a travel mat and/or sleeping bag for additional comfort. Some travellers recommend the airport’s “terrace,” a large open-air smoking area on the upper level, as a comfortable and quiet sleeping spot when the weather is nice. If that doesn’t work for you, there are hotels near the airport. See our Airport Hotels section below for locations, or read traveller airport reviews for more tips.
