AN AIRBERLIN spokesperson told press in Mallorca this week that “cutbacks are over,” and announced that the company expects to bring five million passengers to Palma’s airport this summer.
The airline connects Palma to 34 national and international destinations, and plans to add 11 new German, Swiss and Austrian cities.
The news was announced at a press conference conducted by head of airberlin in Spain and Portugal, Paul Verhagen, together with head of Palma’s airport, Jose Antonio Alvarez, on the occasion of the arrival of passenger number 80 million to the Son Sant Joan airport.
“The cutbacks are over. We may not improve the frequency of flights, but planes are now a bit bigger,” said Verhagen.
The company registers 31 million passengers each year, out of which 6.5 million head for Mallorca, which, Verhagen said, “goes to show the strategic importance that the Balearic Islands have for our company.”
He also added that the company was responsible for 160 jobs in Mallorca and provided flights all 365 days of the year.
