Winter Flights to Ibiza
Ibiza is a beautiful Island and offers a completely different atmosphere in the winter than in the summer.
It is much quieter, a lot less is open tourist-wise which means you get to explore genuine local establishments you haven’t seen before.
And of course, it’s great for a little winter sunshine, to help you truly relax and unwind from everyday life.
However, getting there is a little more difficult with only one direct service from the UK to Ibiza throughout the Winter.
This is a daily, except Tuesday service, operated by British Airways from London City Airport.
Weekdays it leaves London City at 0920 and arrives in Ibiza at 1245, with the return flight leaving Ibiza at 1350 and landing back in London City at 1515.
On Saturday the outbound flight leaves at 0635 arriving at 1000 with the return departing at 1040 arriving at 1245.
On Sunday it departs at 1340 arriving at 1705 and departs at 1750 arriving at 1915.
We had a look at prices and as with all flights with a little pre-planning and flexibility we found flights for £77 each way so £144 all in is which is comparable to the peak summer prices that we are all used to.
But not all of us live in and around London and with the additional costs of getting there and possibly an overnight stay in a hotel it can prove to be expensive. However, all is not lost and there is a way for all of us to get to the white isle over the winter months.
Here are the sensible options we have found flying from a host of UK airports via, Barcelona, Madrid or Palma Mallorca and then catching an onward flight to Ibiza.
We have flown via Palama before in the summer months to save a few Euros which you can read here.

Yes, it does take a little longer, allowing for time to change aircraft and navigating the airport but with a little planning, you can get some great deals. For example:
Outbound Thursday 18th January 2018
Bristol (0710) to Palma (1025) £37.49 Easyjet
Palma (1325) to Ibiza (1405) £24.10 AirEuropa
Return Thursday 25th January 2018
Ibiza (0845) to Palma (0925) £46.10 AirEuropa
Palma (1100) to Bristol (1235) £17.49 Easyjet
A couple of early mornings but for a total price of £126 return it makes it all worthwhile and to see Ibiza in the winter is a must for all who love the island. It’s the perfect quiet getaway in such a fabulous and beautiful location.
Top Tip: Allow at least an hour between flights if not a little longer just to be safe.
