Palma de Mallorca

This week, the extension of the Port of Palma’s Poniente Quays is due to come into service in response to the heavy demand for berths in the Mediterranean which can cater for large cruise vessels. The extension work was handed over yesterday, 15th April, and on Thursday 18th, the 292-metre long Costa Deliziosa, which has a capacity of 2,800 passengers, will be the first vessel to dock at the new facilities. 



The APB and the Ibiza Island Council have today renewed their cooperation agreement on occupational health and safety, firefighting, sea rescue and civil defence for the Port of Ibiza. This extends the agreement signed in 2001 for another fifteen years and aims to increase safety levels at the Port of Ibiza’s service area both on land and at sea.


The agreement was ratified today with the signing of the document by the APB Chairman, José María Urrutia, and by the Council’s President, Vicent Serra.



The APB  gave an official reception today for the cruise ship Costa Favolosa, coinciding with its first stopover in the port of Palma. The president of the APB, José María Urrutia, presented the captain of the boat, Massimo Pennisi¸ with a plaque commemorating the event. Among those attending was shipping agents representative from the company, Baleares Consignatarios: José Sennacheribbo.

The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has received a copy of the decree from the Balearic Islands’ High Court Prosecutor which immediately suspends the dredging project at the Port of Maó until “specific evidence is taken by the Environmental Prosecution Service”.

The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) is set to ask the Balearic Islands High Court of Justice (TSJIB) for an explanation of the judgment which orders a new appraisal of the most advantageous bid to manage the moorings on the Levante Quay between Punta de Cala Figuera and Punta des Rellotge at the Port of Maó. 



This morning, the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands explained the details of the Environmental Watch Plan for the dredging of the Port of Maó to the Sant Lluís Town Council. The Plan ensures that the town’s coastline and the Isla del Aire’s SCI (Site of Community Importance) will not be affected.



The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has received two awards from the prestigious Cruise Insight magazine at Cruise Shipping Miami, the world’s leading cruise trade fair. The publication has recognised the Port of Palma’s efforts in improving its facilities and the Port of Maó as a highly recommended destination.

The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) is heading the Balearic expedition to Cruise Shipping Miami, the leading international cruise shipping trade show held in the North American city from 11th to 14th March. The Balearic Island group is one of the 24 state-owned port delegations visiting the event under the umbrella of the State-owned Ports Body to present what Spanish ports have to offer to the world cruise market.



The month of March sees the completion of the exhibitions held to showcase the entries in the 3rd APB Painting and Photography Competition at the Ibiza Congress Center in Santa Eulària des Riu. On this occasion, the exhibition has travelled around the islands of Majorca, Minorca and Ibiza for the first time, given the large number of participants. The 240 works entered into the competition show the interest that this type of initiative organised by the APB has generated amongst the artistic community and amateur painters and photographers.
