Flights from London to Palma take just over two hours and direct flights can be booked with several airlines including easyJet, Ryanair, Thomson, Thomas Cook, Monarch, British Airways and Iberia. Because it’s so easy now to book your flights in two separate legs, our advice if you want the cheapest return flight is to use online search engines like Netflights, Skyscanner or Expedia to see which is the cheapest flight in each direction. It’s quite possible that the cheapest flight options might be to fly out on easyJet but fly back on one of the non-budget airlines such as British Airways or Iberia, or the other way round. It takes a little searching around on the internet, but you can make considerable savings if you are looking for the cheapest flights available.
Flights from London to Palma with easyJet
We’ve flown to Palma from London with easyJet several times, and never had a problem. They have regular flights to Mallorca from London Gatwick, Stansted, Luton and the newer London Southend Airport. Gatwick is one of the best options as there are several flights a day, from early in the morning until late into the evening. Luton has fewer flights, usually either one or two a day, Southend has only a seasonal service, while Stansted offers one or two flights on some days but not every day. There are naturally more frequent flights in summer, but if flying in winter you have less choice.
Flights from London to Palma with Ryanair
Ryanair operate regular flights from London Stansted to Palma.
Flights from London to Palma with British Airways
British Airways operate flights to Palma from London City Airport using their BA CityFlyer service but only on certain days of the week.
Other Services to Palma from London
There are also both scheduled and charter flights to Palma from Thomson, Thomas Cook and Monarch. Sometimes it can actually be cheaper to get your flight by booking a package holiday with a charter flight included, even if you don’t then use the accommodation. Again, a good online flight search engine should find available charter flights as well as scheduled flights, but also use a search for Mallorca holidays to see if you can come up with a cheap way of getting from London to Palma.
