Northern towns wanting a bus service to connect them

Representatives of five town halls in northern Majorca – Alcudia, Muro, Pollensa, Sa Pobla and Santa Margalida – have met with local hoteliers and the head of the Majorca Transport Consortium (CTM) and made a plea for improved public transport. The feeling among the five town halls is that for too long they have been at the back of the queue when it comes to this public service. They have, therefore, made a specific request for there to be a bus service that connects the five municipalities. Sa Pobla’s mayor, Biel Ferragut, said that connections between Sa Pobla and the rest of the northern area were “absolutely zero” and proposed that there be a connecting service for the five towns as this would be of benefit to both residents and tourists.

The government wants to change the airport name

The Balearic government has officially asked the ministry for development in Madrid to apply the new language laws to the names of the airports in the Balearics, which means using the Catalan names, so Palma airport would no longer be Palma de Mallorca airport but just Palma. The announcement comes just 24 hours after the Balearic parliament agreed to debate a motion to revert the name of Palma de Mallorca to just Palma on the grounds that it was changed by the former Partido Popular government as part of its campaign to diminish the importance of Catalan and its culture in the region.
