According to these new regulations, autonomous communities of risk will be considered those whose IA14> 100 and the temporary measure of an extraordinary nature is adopted to restrict the entry into the territory of the autonomous community of the Balearic Islands to people from the autonomous communities and cities with an incidence and transmission rate of the virus greater than 100 per 100,000 inhabitants, with the exceptions already established for those travelers who wish to access the territory of the Balearic Islands and who comply with documentary checks to accredit the reason for the displacement and a documentary health check, which will have to have a PCR for SARS-CoV-2 with a negative result, or a TMA (short for transcription-mediated amplification), carried out within 72 hours prior to arrival at any of the Balearic Islands.

We continue to implement measures to ensure travel safety and allow passengers to make flight-related arrangements in the most comfortable way. You can consult all the detailed information here.
Aircraft cleaning has been reinforced to ensure thorough cleaning of the fleet, using new and more efficient products tested according to the European viricidal efficiency standard, EN14476. In addition, reinforcements continue to be made such as the inclusion in the cleaning routines of a new cycle at 6:30 am in which the aircraft will be disinfected again on the day they are to operate, thus reinforcing the cycle that is currently carried out every night when the aircraft stop flying until the following day.
To contribute more effectively to the fight against the virus, specific hydro-alcoholic wipes against COVID-19 are being distributed to all passengers when they board the aircraft. These are also made available to passengers who may require them during their flight or if they have to use the lavatories.
We are working to maintain connectivity between the islands, operating with maximum guarantees of safety.
