Coming in from the opposite direction of Ciutadella, you should take the ME-1 which again leads onto the ME-14. There are long and short stay car parks within the airport.
There is just one terminal at the airport which is used for both arrivals and departures. There’s a tourist information desk in the terminal if you want to pick up any information on arrival. Modern facilities have been adapted to cater for disabled travellers.

Menorca Airport Car Hire
Menorca is a tiny island with a small population. Driving is very straightforward and car rental rates tend to be very reasonable. Whilst there are car rental offices in the airport you’ll get much better deals by hiring your car before travelling and collecting the keys at the appropriate desk in the terminal. Get a quote from Economy Car Hire who are highly recommended as their rentals don’t include any nasty hidden extras when you come to pay.
Shuttle Bus & Private Transfers
The best option for any visitors who don’t wish to rent a car is to pre-book a shuttle transfer with Resorthoppa and have a vehicle and driver waiting to collect you on arrival. The service caters for any group size and covers all the main resorts. Most popular destinations include Cala’n Forcat, Ciudedela, Cala’n Bosch, Binibeca, Fornells, Arena d’en Castell and Es Castell. Shuttledirect also offer this service.
The cheapest transport option is to take a public bus into Mahon bus station then connect with another bus that is going to your final destination. These buses run every 30 minutes into Mahon beginning at 6am with the last service around 10pm. This certainly isn’t the most convenient way of travelling especially if you have children with and the bus services seem quite unreliable so if the bus doesn’t turn up you’ll have to take one of the local taxis which wait outside the arrivals area.
If you’d rather take a taxi you’ll find no shortage of them waiting at the rank just outside the main doors of the airport. The private transfer option provided by the shuttle companies mentioned above are usually cheaper than on the spot taxi rates.
