Departures: Viva Majorca

The Independent Travel
NEARLY a quarter of British holidaymakers taking a package tour this year have gone to Majorca. If you are not one of them, and would like to see what you have been missing, a new deal from the Spanish airline Viva Air (071-830 0011) could tempt you: Heathrow-Palma for pounds 125 return (plus pounds 5 for the new Air Passenger Duty), for departures in November and early December. Although you could probably find a charter flight for around pounds 100 at that time of year, the Viva offer is for scheduled daytime flights - and the airline does not insist on the 'Saturday-night stay' condition of most cheap fares.
