Certainly more like 2hrs 15mins.

Airlines usually include a bit of 'flex' in case they take off slightly late, but can still claim to be on time when landing.

I fly from Bournemouth > Palma regularly, that takes 2:10 generally, im guessing as you're north east it must take at least 30 mins to get to the south of the UK so your time is probably accurate.

2 hrs10 minutes on easyJet from Liverpool to Palma last month.From Gatwick I have had 2 hrs exactly. As trinet said the advertised duration is longer than the experience.And because of taxiing,airbridge etc you can count on another 10 minutes from touchdown to doors open.

Partly depends on the time you are landing , last time we flew to Palma from Doncaster we went round the top of the island and out to sea again 3 times before the plane was allowed a final approach -arrival time was a peak time for landings so it was 2 hrs 45 mins usually if your straight in its more like 2.10- 2.15 especially night flights.

Best time i've achieved from Gatwick is 1 hour 46 mins, take off to touchdown.

So 2 hours inc taxi-ing.
