The first module serves the domestic market, module B for intercontinental flights, while modules C and D are for international airlines. All four modules are linked, making it convenient to get from one to the other. Taking shuttle buses to transfer between modules is not necessary, unlike its counterparts in Madrid and Barcelona.

In the terminal, each module acts like a mini terminal housing retail and food outlets, as well as departure and arrival halls. In all modules, a wide array of food and retail options ensure travellers can eat and shop to their heart’s content. Explore the variety of restaurants and bars open to travellers arriving at Palma Airport. Dining places scattered throughout the terminal include Café Plantaciones, Café Laurentis, Bar Punto de Encuentro, Cafeteria La Plaza, and Cafeteria Gregal.
