Leaving Friday ~~ Urgently need Meeting point at airport

We are travelling from Canada, meeting 82 yr old Mother in law travelling who is flying in from the UK.

Where is a nice easy place for her to locate that we can meet at?

(Hopefully if all goes to plan, we'll be there before her) Never been to Majorca so don't know how big/busy the airport will be

Thanks

Hi,

The best place would be outside the security at the arrivals gate.

Whatever terminal you land at you all get channelled to the one baggage hall and main exit.

There will be plenty of people here with signs to pick up people for transfers.

Thanks for your quick response.......... IS there a Coffee shop nearby or somewhere to sit ?

Just thinking of 82yr old mother in law if we miss one of our connections .. (we have 4 diff flights to connect & catch)

I notice you are from Cala dor .. That's where we are heading to, what's the best way to get there?

there is a "meeting point" after baggage claim which is in the middle of the arrivals terminal, just next to the (only) cafe in arrivals and by the two bank ATMS.

Dont arrange to meet by the gates as you come out of the baggae claim hall as there are 4 exits and often when you fly transit from outside of Europe your baggage ends up in the middle carosels ( I think they are numbers 9-11 but could be wrong) which you access via a one-way gate so that they can x-ray them for customs, so its often difficult for you to know which gate youll come out of.

Hi,

Yes there is a cafe-bar just outside security near to the exit to the main Taxi rank.

There is also a cheaper cafe under the multi storey car park if you are there for a longer time.

They do meals here.

Re Cala D'or do you mean the direction or mode of transport?

Hi,

A taxi is by far the quickest at around €80 for up to 4 people, there are always plenty of them outside the terminal doors.
