Happy Birthday, PMI

The airport of Son Sant Joan in Palma de Mallorca is looking back at 50 years of commercial operation. During the Summer of 1960, all commercial flights were redirected from Mallorca’s earlier airport, Son Bonet, to PMI International. I guess that something like 500,000,000 passengers have used the airport facilities in the course of the past fifty years; quite an impressive figure, don’t you think? 19,590,129 passenger movements (landings or departures) were reported between January and October 2010 in Palma, with 2,054,589 in October alone. Prior to 1960, Son Sant Joan airport was a military airport, and part of the facilities are still used by the Spanish military to this day.

Happy Birthday, PMI. Enhorabuena.
