Palma de Mallorca Airport (Catalan: Aeroport de Palma de Mallorca, Spanish: Aeropuerto de Palma de Mallorca) is an airport located 8 km (5 mi) east of Palma, Majorca, adjacent to the village of Can Pastilla. Also known as Son Sant Joan Airport or 'Aeroport de Son Sant Joan', it is the third largest airport in Spain, after Madrid's Barajas Airport and Barcelona Airport. During the summer months it is one of the busiest airports in Europe, and was used by 21.1 million passengers in 2010. The airport is the main base for the Spanish carrier Air Europa and also a hub for German carrier Air Berlin.

Palma de Mallorca Airport occupies an area of 6.3 km2 (3.9 mi). Due to rapid growth of passenger numbers, additional infrastructure was added to the two terminals A (1965) and B (1972). This main terminal was designed by local architect Pere Nicolau Bonet and was officially opened on 12 April 1997. The airport now consists of four modules: Module A, Module B, Module C and Module D. The airport can handle 25 million passengers per year, with a capacity to dispatch 12,000 passengers per hour. Future plans include an increase of the passenger capacity to 32 million passengers in 2010 and to 38 million passengers in 2015.
