Palma de Mallorca Airport

VIMA Rent a Car has focused on providing its clients with excellent service. Due to this, they added Palma de Mallorca Airport as a new rental car drop-off location in 2000.

The beginnings of tourism in Mallorca date back to 1921, when the company Aeromarítima Mallorquina was awarded the postal service between Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca, using seaplanes that landed in the port of Palma.

In May 1935, the company LAPE (Líneas Aéreas Postales Españolas), the predecessor of Iberia, was set up. Months later, in August, the first regular flight between Palma de Mallorca and Madrid was inaugurated, using Son Sant Joan Airport.

Son Sant Joan received special attention from the 1964–1967 Airport Plan, which included an extension of the runway, the construction of a terminal building, and supplemental beaconing, communication, and navigational aids installations.

By the 1980s, traffic growth was still going strong. The number of passengers increased from slightly over seven million to approximately ten million in 1986 and over fifteen million in 1995. This prompted another extension, which in turn prompted the creation of the current Terminal Building, which opened in 1997.

The airport is connected to 168 destinations in 30 countries, has more than 26 million passengers this year, and has 80 airlines using its facilities. Because of everything mentioned above, Palma Airport has become a global standard for management and maximum effectiveness for both operators and passengers.

By renting with VIMA Rent a Car, you can be sure to get exceptional service and a rental car at Palma de Mallorca Airport without waiting.
