Is Palma airport big?

Hi, wondering is Palma airport big, been there years ago but cannot remember, and does it take long getting through security etc? Spoilt this year in Almeria airport, very small and was so quick and easy.

Handles 20+ million passangers a year and is in the top 4 busiest in spain so is a decent size and busy, just a case of allowing enough time and patience .

Will also depend if you are transitting through the airport at one of the most popular times of the year , imagine it is not going to be as sedate as almeria☺.

I think it is one of the largest airports for a tourist resort destination I have seen.

Obviously not on the scale of Heathrow but larger than most Spanish resort airports .

As said, during the main summer period it’s one of the busiest airports in Europe let alone Spain, if you’re taking luggage to go in the hold, a minimum of 2hrs, if only hand luggage you can get away with a little less.
