Mallorca Int'l Airport (LEPA) - Jet Charter Services
From there, visitors can charter a private jet to the mainland or the other three major islands in the archipelago off the coast of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea.
While it’s a 12-month tourist spot, commercial air traffic peaks during the summer season with most visitors coming from Germany (Cologne, Frankfurt and Hamburg), Spain (Barcelona, Dusseldorf and Madrid-Barajas) and the United Kingdom.
But, private and chartered business jets fly into the airport from all over and at all times of the year – especially during the annual Palma International Boat and Superyacht Show and the prestigious sailing regattas in the spring.
Palma de Mallorca Airport continues to gain fame and volume as a business aviation airport and has been ranked as one of the Top 50 busiest business aviation airports in the world.
The first planes took off from Palma de Mallorca Airport – then, merely a flat field – in the 1920s to deliver postage to the nearby Balearic Islands.
It was taken over by the military in 1938 but later returned to civilian use.
The airport made a major improvement that led to its continued expansion when it extended its runway in 1958. That allowed more and bigger planes to be able to land, which, in turn, led to an increase in passenger demand. A new terminal was built in the 1960s. A second runway opened in 1974. Another new terminal, Terminal A, opened in 1997.

Rent a jet to Palma Superyacht Show
There are many reasons to come to the exclusive vacation island of Mallorca but for millionaires and other elite travelers, there is no better reason to charter a private jet into PMI than for the annual Palma Superyacht Show.
Although relatively new – the show launched in 2013 – it has quickly become one of the biggest events on the international yachting calendar. It is held in conjunction with the Boat Show Palma every year in late April and early May.
What sets the Palma Superyacht Show apart from others is its 50/50 ratio of power boats to sailboats. That makes it one of the largest sailing superyacht shows worldwide.
The superyacht show attributes its success in drawing more and more visitors every year to the accessibility of Palma de Mallorca and to the prestigious brokerage houses, marinas and professional equipment and service companies that send representatives every year.
The show is not only for yacht owners but also for those thinking about buying a yacht. Shoppers can charter a yacht to try it out. More than 80 superyachts of every kind will be on display. Professional charter and brokerage companies will have representatives there to help you figure out which kind is best for you.
For those who already own a yacht, those professionals can offer advice on refit and repair.
Only yachts greater than 78 feet will be on display for sale or charter at the Palma Superyacht Show.
Organized by the yachting industry for the yachting community, the Palma Superyacht Show strives to bring a relaxed and social air to the show, which visitors like. It provides not only an excellent chance to do business but also to network with other owners.
All the yachts are available for charter or immediate sale, just in time for the start of the Mediterranean summer season. There will be:
- 80 yachts for sale and/or charter (78 feet and longer)
- 85 international exhibitors
- A new refit and repair area
- Excellent networking opportunities

If you’re not in the market for a superyacht, many other boats will be on display at the same time during the five-day annual Boat Show Palma.
More than 300 boats from more than 500 exhibitors from 26 countries will be on display.
The boat show is of interest to all the major players in the boat business, including international brokers, sellers, importers and distributors.
With some 3,700 brands represented, the show is also of interest to owners of marinas, shipyards, dry docks, repairmen and renovators.
The event, held at the Marina Moll Vell in Palma, showcases new products and innovations as well as:
- Nautical tourism (destination)

Hire a jet to LEPA for sailing regattas
Majorca’s capital also hosts prestigious sailing regattas such as the Princesa Sofía Trophy in which current Olympic, World and European sailing champions are some of the 1,500 sailors in more than 1,000 boats in the event; and the Regatta Copa del Rey. Paramount Business Jets can arrange a chartered flight into either of these events that draw participants and sailing fans from around the world.
Fly to Mallorca for its beauty
Mallorca (Majorca) is one of Spain’s four principle Balearic Islands – the others are Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera – in the Mediterranean.
It is a mixture of old and new. Its shoreline has beaches, some of them in coves, and rugged cliffs plunging into the sea. There are modern beach resorts as well as Roman and Moorish ruins. There is a vibrant night life in Palma, the capital, and citrus plantations scattered around its outskirts.
Half the population of Mallorca lives in Palma, which was voted “the best place to live in the world” by The Sunday Times of London. It shares the island’s mixture of old and new with its first class boutique hotels and thriving old town. It is said to have some of the best restaurants in Europe.
Palma, with an ideal average annual temperature of 64 degrees, stretches along both sides of the Bay of Palma. It has several beaches and bathing areas along its long stretches of sand on the crystal clear sea.
The 1,400-square-mile island is an exclusive vacation spot and a great stopping off place when chartering a private jet to mainland Spain or any of the other islands. It is within a two-hour plane ride to most European capitals. And, Palma is an excellent place to start on journeys to discover the rest of Mallorca – the beaches, the Serra de Tramuntana Mountains (and their hiking trails), the tranquil north end of the island and the many mysterious coves. When you get back into town, you can dance the night away in one of the city’s vibrant, downtown hot spots.
