Tourists will be able to jet off to Mallorca from London Oxford Airport
A new service is to link London Oxford Airport to the Spanish island of Mallorca, offering tourists a new higher-end holiday option.
Flights to the Balearic island will run on Saturdays from the middle of June to the end of September and be operated by Eastern Airways.
Passengers using the new Oxford Airport Travel brand will get the benefit of free meals and drinks on their plane as well as a free baggage allowance.
After they land in the major city of Palma de Mallorca, travellers' ground services will be provided by local firm Balearic Discovery, which works for a range of tour operators and travel agents.
Oxford Airport Travel is also offering private villa accommodation, with seven nights plus a hire car starting from £895 per person.
Mallorca is a "breathtaking island" boasting a varied landscape, including the traditional holiday beaches as well as mountains and countryside, David Gambier of Oxford Airport Travel said. With a variety of countryside on offer, visitors could easily be tempted to take part in activities such a mountain biking, climbing or diving so they might want to think about
sports travel insurance before setting off.
Mr Gambier said: "Mallorca should no longer be perceived as a cheap and cheerful destination, but is increasingly raising its profile with five Michelin star restaurants, numerous luxurious properties and A list visitors including Jenson Button, Bob Geldof and Take That's Mark Owen.
"We are really excited about the product and believe it's filling a genuine need to put service and style back into the holiday experience."
