Perhaps fly to Valencia or Denia, then take the ferry ?

The ferry from Denia or Valencia is actually included in their 200€ special deal. A direct flight to either of those cities is gonna be hard to find, I think.

Caldou got the gist of the first email, the second one is actually about a presentation of slinging that will be held on the 31st of January at FITUR (spanish tourism fair)  taking place in Madrid.

CA, if you end up going via Zürich airport, that's literally 5 mins by train from where I live. Tell me your flight number so I can come shoot rocks at your plane  Grin

flights booked Smiley

Getting into palma about 17:00 on the 26th.

So just waiting on pep for hotel info.

I did find  a ridiculously cheap deal last night, but I'll wait for pep's reply before booking anything myself.

This is going to be fun Smiley

Ryanair want £20 for a suitcase. I think for 5 days I'll need a case. Still works out under £200

***

So ryanair charge £20 for a suitcase and german wings charge £16.
Given the amount of stuff you can't take in carry on luggage, It's not exactly optional.

Oh well, done now.

Just waiting on pep ribasribas for hotel costs.
