Palma de Mallorca, 7th October 2008. Spanair has published its new Flight Schedule for the winter 2008-2009 season, which includes 6 regular weekly routes between the Balearic Islands and the Spanish mainland, (see attached table). The schedule comes into operation on 26 October and is valid until Saturday 28 March 2009.

In total, there will still be 14 flights between Palma and Barcelona and Madrid, split into 8 daily flights to Barcelona (from Monday to Friday) and 6 daily flights to Madrid. With the broad range on offer, both in terms of times and routes, Spanair will meet the needs of business and holiday travellers.

Improved schedules linking Madrid and Barcelona to Ibiza

Spanair will be the airline offering the first flight of the day from Madrid to Ibiza, at 07:20, which will enable passengers to enjoy a full day on the island. Likewise, the company offers the last flight back to Madrid from Ibiza, at 21:05.

On the Barcelona-Ibiza route, there will be two daily services, compared to just the one on offer last winter. On this route, the times have been improved, with two departures from Barcelona at 09:30 and 15:10.

Commitment to Menorca

Spanair remains committed to Menorca as a permanent destination, maintaining a daily flight from Mahón to Madrid and Barcelona. This policy shows how the company continues to consider the island an important destination throughout the year, facilitating travel to the mainland for the citizens of Menorca and contributing towards improved transport links. Looking ahead to summer 2009, Spanair plans to increase the number of flights on the two routes to/from Ibiza and to/from Mahón.

Lastly, there will continue to be eight and six daily flights to Palma from Barcelona and Madrid respectively throughout the year.

With this schedule, Spanair adapts its offering to actual demand and it is adjusting to the targets set out in its Viability Plan, designed to simplify and modernise its operations, and make the company more flexible, efficient and viable by 2010.


Spanair was founded in 1986 and since April 2003 it has been part of the Star Alliance, a global network of the world's largest and most prestigious airlines.
