Default Delays at Palma Passport Control

Was anyone affected by the reported delays over the weekend at Passport Control at Palma airport? According to various newspapers,at one stage there was more than a thousand people queuing on arrival, with some fainting from the heat.

Just wondering if it was an Easter holiday surge one off or an ongoing problem.

It seemed to affect both arrivals and departures - I wonder how that affected booked transfers for arrivals and did people miss their flight home because of it I wonder?

All was well when we went through on Saturday evening - passed through in a few minutes. I have been there in the past when a large queue built up incredibly quickly as a result of one guy having some sort of problem with his passport meaning only one officer was processing everyone else - wish they would install and staff a few more cubicles for situations like these.

We had a 15 minute wait arriving at Palma last week. It seemed that the immigration officers were processing each passport on their computer rather than waving you through. Part of a go slow, maybe?

Baggage took a long time too, even though we were the only flight arriving

I did read this was happening at Malaga also and people were missing flights as of course if people have only hand luggage they arrive fairly late

I thought it said it was security and somethng to do with the Shengen area Unfortunately cant remember where I read it to check !

Fairly speedy lunchtime today. Waved through without looking at passport closely. 35 minutes from touchdown to exit at arrivals with three hold bags. Not bad at all. Terminal A always faster than the others.
