London Oxford Airport welcomes new summer flights to Palma, Mallorca


London Oxford Airport is preparing to welcome new, direct weekly holiday flights to the popular Balearic Island of Mallorca from mid-June through to the end of September. Services will be operated every Saturday morning by Eastern Airways, the 13-year old award-winning regional airline, using quiet and fuel efficient Saab 2000 50-seat aircraft.


The flights are running in co-operation with leading Oxfordshire-based Great Experience Travel Group, under a new Oxford Airport Travel brand.    Details of seat only prices and a wide range of holiday packages featuring family-friendly hotels, upscale Mallorcan properties and desirable private villas,  plus all the concierge services needed to make for an extra special holiday, go on sale on Valentine’s Day, 14 February.   


Oxford Air Travel is inviting customers interested in these scheduled charter services - be it seat only, 7, 14 or even 21-day holidays to register at


“We are delighted to be introducing this beautiful Mediterranean summer destination, direct from Oxford Airport,” said David Gambier, Great Experience Travel Group Managing Director.  “There are no longer any scheduled flights to Palma from London Heathrow so I am certain we have a success on our hands with this initiative.  We are working with a renowned local ground agent, Balearic Discovery, to create some wonderful summer experiences and combined with flying from this airport’s superb hassle-free Oxfordjet terminal, usually frequented by private aviation clientele, passengers are ensured an exclusive Mallorca experience."


David Surley, Head of Customer Services and Route Development at Oxford Airport added:  “We are thrilled to add this new service in partnership with Great Experience Travel.  We are certain it will be very popular and the feedback from suppliers in Mallorca has been terrific.  This means we are able to offer some great and varied deals this summer which will suit a range of budgets - and all from your local airport.”


Chris Holliday, Eastern Airways’ Chief Operating Officer, said: “We are pleased to support Great Experience Travel Company’s tour operator programme from Oxford Airport by providing our Saab 2000 aircraft to meet the expected demand for the summer season.  Our convenient charter service will ensure passengers reach Palma non-stop in comfort and style from Oxford in 2 hours 45 minutes.”


Flight timings are as follows:


Flight No EZE1091 Depart Oxford at 0930, arriving Palma, Mallorca 1315

Flight No EZE1092 Depart Palma at 415, arriving Oxford 1600.


A week’s parking at Oxford Airport will be £25.
