3) Transportation

Airport to the city

Palma de Mallorca is very well connected with the rest of Spain and Europe (specially Germany, the UK, Austria, Switzerland and Scandinavia) with its international "Son Sant Joan" airport (airport code PMI), the only airport in the island of Mallorca. The airport lies 8 kilometers east of Palma.
How to go from the airport to the city and back:
Bus: EMT Line 1 Bus, Harbour-Airport (The stop is outside the Arrivals' Hall and, on average, there is one bus every 12-15 minutes). Ticket price: 2 EUR.
For Hotel Palladium please get out at "Passeig Mallorca 38" and for Hotels Jaime III and Almudaina at "Passeig Mallorca 18".
Line 21, departing also from the airport, does not go to Palma downtown, but rather to Arenal.
Taxi: can be found also outside the Arrivals Hall. Average price to Hotels: 20 EUR (with supplements for luggage, night time and Sundays).

Metro: From the city to workshop venue

Metro (subway) is the recommended transportation between Palma downtown (Plaça de Espanya) and the UIB Campus where the workshop will take place.
Travel time to "UIB" is 13 min. Plaça de Espanya-Estació Intermodal is the first (and central) station and UIB is the last station of the line. There are four services per hour, at 0, 15, 30, and 45 minutes every hour from 8 until 20. Ticket price is 0.90 EUR. Please, keep the ticket until the exit, since it is needed to leave the station. A return ticket can also be purchased for 1.70 EUR.
After arriving to the UIB Metro station, you can take the circular free UIB bus, and get off at the first stop, "Son Lledó". The Orflow10 conference room is just opposite to the bus stop. You can also walk there (10 minutes).

Bus service to the UIB

It is also possible to go to the University by bus, using buses 19 or 20. The price of a one-way ticket is 1.25 EUR.
To use the city bus line #19: The recommended stop is "Comte de Sallent, 16" (to go to the stop it is necessary to cross the avenue). Please, get off at "Son Lledó". It is recommended that you allow approximately 30-40 minutes for the trip. For more info on this bus, please check here.
To use the city bus line #20, the stop "Avda. Jaume III" is very close to the hotels (see map), but the bus makes a longer way to go to the University, taking about 40 minutes to the "Son Lledó" UIB stop. Thus the recommended transportation is really the Metro. For more info on this bus, please check here.
