Menorca Airport is a busy, modern facility just southwest of the capital city of Mahon, in the southeast part of the island. Flights arrive at the single-terminal airport from across Europe, with numerous options from the UK. There are no direct flights from the US, so visitors from America or anywhere outside of Europe will need to connect through one of the major European cities such as London, Rome, Madrid Amsterdam or Frankfurt.
easyJet flies to Menorca from several UK cities, including London and Newcastle, along with Flybe, Jet2, Monarch, Thomson Airways, and British Airways. There is also regular services from all over Spain, as well as nearby Ibiza and Mallorca.
Facilities are fair at Menorca Airport and include ATMs, currency exchange, and a bank. There are decent shopping options for cosmetics, clothing, electronics, and duty free, along with several cafés, restaurants, and bars, plus numerous travel agencies.
Taxis wait outside Arrivals and run to both of Menorca’s main towns—Mahon and Ciutadella—or to any beach you choose. They are metered, but you pay a surcharge for airport pick-up and additionally for any luggage. There is also a charge for late-night transport with taxis. Two of the main firms that can be pre-booked include Taxis Mahon (+34-971-357-700) and Parada de Taxis de Ciutadella (+34-971-381-197).
Public buses also serve Menorca Airport, running to Mahon every 30 minutes from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. The journey takes 15 minutes and serves Estacio Maritima, the main bus stop in the town center, and points en route. Those booked to stay at a main hotel will usually get their airport transfers included with the package, so check your travel provider ahead of time. If you rent a car, take the Me-14 and Me-12 northeast to Mahon, a journey about three miles (10 minutes). Ciutadella is about 45 minutes away via Highway 1, and Cala en Porter is a 15 minute drive due west.
