PMI Palma International airport is going through a good year in 2011. Passenger figures between January and July 2011 were up some 8.4 % on the previous year with a total of 12,683,541 air passenger movements, according to AENA, the Spanish airport body. That in itself is not an outstanding number but, 3,403,098 passengers were counted for the month of July alone, making this a best ever monthly figure in the 50 plus years of PMI airport history, representing an increase of 11.8 % over the same month of the previous year. And the month of August 2011 is expected to better the record figure. Everybody is pleased except for the people in Egypt and other North African destinations.
Hotel occupancy was recorded for July 2011 by the Federación Empresarial Hotelera de Mallorca (Mallorcan Hotel Federation) at 93 %, a figure not recorded for the previous four years. There are some good bits about Mallorca, even in the time of crash and crisis.
