Air Traffic Volume

Palma’s airport Son Sant Joan, also known by its airport code as PMI, recorded a total of 21,117,270 air traffic passengers during 2010. That’s 0.4 % less than the year before and, I should think, not bad at all for a period of crisis and economic downturn. Mind you, the number represents only 10,558,635 individual people since each landing and departure is statistically counted separately as, usually, a visitor arrives and then departs at some later stage. But still. It was not a record year, last year, but the total number is somewhere near the top of the all time record.

The outlook for this year seems to be even better. Tour operators are talking about an increase in bookings of between 8 and 15 %, depending on the country of origin. There may even be the added bonus in 2011 of tourists wanting to have gone to Tunisia or Egypt and now changing their holiday plans for a destination without political unrest such as Spain or, indeed, the Balearic Islands.

The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: January 6th, 2011. The time was 08:27:08.

    • Hello John,
      Im also trying to find Don Murray and am using the internet to find him – hence found your email request. The guy I want to find is Canadian, was with the Red Arrows, is a photographer & writer and has been living in Spain for 30 years. I knew him in NZ in around 1975.
      My son is living in Spain and is a keen photographer and thought he might like to meet Don.
      Don would be late 60’s or early 70’s. I did find him about 5 years ago but cant find the contact anymore.
      My email is jolenebosanquet (at)
      Look forward to hearing from you.

      Arcapatrimoni in Palma de Mallorca
      Partner Aina Pasqual
      I have found nothing of Donald since 2014
      There are pictures of him up until then.
      Aina would be a good person for you to contact.

    • If you Google Arcapatrimoni in Palma or Aina Pasqual Palma you will be able to find pictures of Donald. Jolene below identified him as the Canadian Photographer I knew in the 1980’s in London.
      I am unable to find anything about him from 2014.
      It would not be appropriate for me to contact Aina as she did not know of me.
