None at present but I understand negotiations are taking place so watch this space. I would keep my eye on Expats Menorca and Love Menorca on Facebook.

Direct flights from Menorca to London and Paris this winter funded by marketing

It remains to be seen which airlines will offer the routes and how often

The number of scheduled flights to Menorca airport has already deflated this September and will be further reduced in October, when most airlines stop operating there coinciding with the end of the tourist season. . After a summer of negotiations, the Tourism Promotion Foundation is about to close deals with the UK and France to maintain connectivity between the island and both territories during the low season.

In this way it responds to the claim of the British community living on the island that has long been calling for improved connections with their country in the winter months. In fact, some of them had launched a campaign to collect signatures through the Change.org platform to demand a direct flight between Menorca and London which, in just over two weeks, has garnered more than 10,000 signatures.

It remains to be seen which airlines will offer the routes and how often. Details that according to the Island Council will be announced in a matter of weeks.

Yes, there used to be three a week, two direct and one that picked up at Manchester, dropped down at Luton to pick up there. Then we had one a week from Gatwick, after that, none. EasyJet then signed a contract for three years to fly once a week from Gatwick.  They completed two years until covid hit!! At the moment, nothing but we’ll wait and see!
