Sailed through departures just now - no problems at security or passport control, but there's a massive queue at passport control for those people arriving. Queuing as far back as Burger King. Still, I'd rather be arriving than leaving!

According to MDB there will be extra Police on Duty at the gates for British flights due to the number of flights arriving at similar times.

At the airport now (Sat 3:30pm) on the way home ��

Breezed through security and passport control, however the queue for those arriving to get through passport control stretches all the way back past the Carlsberg Pub and is growing fast - must be well over an hour to get through????

There were long queues leaving yesterday. It obviously can still be a problem.

My daughter and family touched down at 1740 yesterday and left the airport in their pre-booked taxi at 1805.

Son and family arrived 23.20 last night - picked up suitcase and in taxi by midnight! I believe the problems with passport control - coming in and leaving is more of an issue at the weekends and on Tuesday - when a lot of the cruise ships come into Palma. Fingers crossed for us in September.

We came back yesterday evening with hand luggage only so no problem checking in, I had not brought a newspaper, or kept up with the news and it was not until I received a text saying make sure you are at the airport early I was aware there was a problem, as I had already had a taxi booked I went to be at the airport the usual two hours ahead of flight it was less busy than usual through security.

Am happy to report absolutely no delays at passport control on arriving at Palma on Monday 7th August 2017 - and none today when leaving on the early morning 07.15 hours flight from Palma to Bournemouth. No big queues at security either.
The only delay was the big queue at the one and only cafe open in Terminal A. It's the first one you see when you arrive in Terminal A, No other outlets were open at all at 05.30 hours. No signs indicating when they might be open either.
One poor member of staff was the only person behind the counter in the Cafe which was open - all credit to him as he dealt with the enormous queue as well as he could and remained mil-mannered throughout.
Suddenly at 6am three further members of staff turned up for duty and the queue disappeared.
