So much valuable learning can take place outside of the classroom and especially out of the country. FlyDirect offers schools the chance to organise trips with the students to learn about and experience a different culture.
Offering an excellent summer climate and a wide range of available activities ranging from cultural tours of Palma’s cathedral to a fun day out at a water park, Majorca is a great choice for a Spanish language trip or activity week.
By opting for a direct flight from Jersey, school groups can avoid the additional expense and time of transiting through London and be stepping off the ‘plane in Majorca just 2 hours after departing Jersey.
Operating weekly from May to September, FlyDirect offer competitive rates for groups, and can arrange as much or as little is required in terms of accommodation, on-island transport and activities.
For more information visit our dedicated Majorca page.
For groups larger than 20 people, private coach transfers can be arranged, making the journey from the airport to your preferred hotel quick and smooth, avoiding any unnecessary stops along the way.
WEEKLY DEPARTURES 18TH MAY - 22ND SEPTEMBER 2019

Les Quennevais School have travelled to Majorca with FlyDirect for two years now, and Assistant Headteacher Julie Ashley gave the following testimonial after their first trip;
‘I booked a large group to Majorca with Flydirect through Coop Travelmaker. We were a party of 74 passengers, the whole booking process was seamless and Flydirect were very flexible when having to make amendments to the booking. The whole trip was excellent. Flights were on time and the ground arrangements went very smoothly with the help of their Resort Representative, Freda, she was exceptional and nothing was too much trouble’.
A range of activities can be arranged to suit all interests, and an itinerary can be designed based on the requirements of each group, from a full week of pursuits to a more relaxed schedule allowing time for independent exploration. Examples of the most popular excursions are shown below;
Experience an overview of Majorca’s south west on this engaging all day tour. Travel by a combination of coach, boat, vintage tram and historic wooden ‘orange train’ between the City of Palma and the fantastic Tramuntana mountain range, taking in the historic town of Sóller, pretty Port de Sóller and the hidden sandy cove of Sa Calobra en route.
The world famous Drach Caves are situated in the east of Majorca close to Porto Cristo. Tours visit this subterranean space, where impressive natural architecture is reflected in lakes and canals. The caves alone are a half day tour, or add a visit to traditional Majorcan manor house ‘Es Calderers’ and taste typical and traditional Majorcan products.
Palma City & Cathedral
Take a half day excursion to the fascinating city of Palma and enjoy a guided tour of the maze-like old town, which points out some of the most important sites and buildings, not least the landscape dominating gothic cathedral, which features work by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi. Free time is included to take lunch in a typical Spanish café.
Top School Hotels
Hotel HSM Atlantic Park
New to the FlyDirect programme for 2017, HSM Atlantic Park is situated on one of the quietest corners of the otherwise lively and bustling resort of Magaluf. Whilst the location allows for a relaxing holiday if required, the spacious white sand beach and busy resort centre are a short stroll away.
HSM Don Juan
New to the FlyDirect programme for 2017, and sister to the HSM Atlantic Park, the Don Juan is well situated in a quieter area of Magaluf, allowing for a relaxed budget sunshine break, whilst still being in easy reach of the hustle and bustle of the resort centre and beach.
