Maritime Alliance: Trasmapi & Formentera Lines


In 2023, the first-ever alliance between shipping companies was born on the Ibiza-Formentera route

Formentera, December 31, 2023

During the Inaugural Day of Fitur 2023, Formentera Lines was unveiled—a new high-speed passenger line connecting Ibiza and Formentera.
The initiative stems from a collaboration between Insotel Marine Group, the maritime division of the Insotel Group, and the shipping company Trasmapi, founded in 1974 and headquartered on the island of Ibiza.

In a strategic alliance that redefines the maritime journey between Ibiza and Formentera, Trasmapi and Formentera Lines join forces to offer passengers unprecedented benefits.
This collaboration not only simplifies and streamlines travel but transforms the entire journey experience, from ticket purchase to arrival on the paradisiacal island of Formentera.

Unprecedented Versatility:

Passengers with Trasmapi will now experience unparalleled flexibility, as their tickets become interchangeable and valid for any of the ferries operated by Formentera Lines. This synergy opens up a myriad of possibilities, allowing travelers to adjust their plans according to a broader range of schedules and ferry frequencies.

Increased Frequency, Expanded Options:
The merger of Trasmapi and Formentera Lines results in a beneficial and significant increase in the actual frequency of ferries between Ibiza and Formentera, available to those who have purchased their tickets online on Trasmapi’s website. This not only simplifies trip planning but also provides passengers with the freedom to choose from a variety of convenient schedules to suit their agendas. Whether you prefer the flexibility to select from various timings or simply hop on the first ferry from either company upon your arrival at the ports of Ibiza or Formentera.

Exclusive Discounts at Your Fingertips:
When purchasing Trasmapi tickets through their official website, travelers can take advantage of an exclusive discount using the promotional code 4MENTERA, thanks to our collaboration with the shipping company. This initiative not only encourages early booking with discounts reaching up to 19%, but also ensures quicker access to the ferry, making the cost of the voyage even more affordable.

Hassle-Free Transfers:

Formentera Lines and Trasmapi join forces to offer unparalleled convenience by including, free of charge, bus transfers from the airport to the port of Ibiza and vice versa. This integration simplifies ground transportation, allowing passengers to reach their ferries efficiently and without complications.

Expanded Schedule Options Throughout the Year:

Throughout the year, but especially during the bustling summer season, the collaboration between both shipping companies results in a significant expansion of schedules, particularly in the early morning and late-night departures. This allows visitors to Formentera to make the most of their island visit. With access to the combined fleet of both companies, passengers enjoy a much broader and comfortable range of schedule options.

An Alliance that Transcends Maritime Connectivity:

This partnership between Trasmapi and Formentera Lines not only redefines maritime connectivity but also elevates the travel experience, turning it into an unforgettable chapter in every traveler’s memory.

Formentera Lines: The Birth of a New Shipping Company:

Formentera Lines stands out as the first Spanish shipping company to integrate environmental corporate social responsibility as a fundamental part of its business activities. As part of its commitment, the company allocates a portion of ticket revenue on the Ibiza-Formentera route to the protection and preservation of oceanic seagrass (posidonia) and its marine environment. Moreover, it will focus on promoting and educating on environmental values. The establishment of a monitoring and control committee to oversee these specific actions is underway and will be announced at an upcoming event on the island of Formentera.

I’m Ramón Tur, the person behind everything written and photographed on this website about Formentera. I discovered the island in 1972 when my parents, aboard the mythical Joven Dolores, took me on vacation from Ibiza for the first time, and it was love at first sight that has only grown stronger over time, making Formentera my place of residence for many years now.
