Flights to Madeira

Madeira flights, which take around three and a half hours from the UK, descend to a tropical archipelago of the Atlantic Ocean, which contains two inhabited islands - Madeira and Porto Santo - as well as two groups of uninhabited islands. Flights to Madeira bring you to a destination often referred to as the Islands of Eternal Spring, as a result of their year round mild climate. The islands are known for their stunning flora and fauna, especially when flowering begins in spring.

Charter flights to Funchal from the UK run mainly to provide transport for package holidays, excess seats are sold off on a flight only basis. The cost of these seats is usually cheap when compared to scheduled flights. Charter airlines can offer these Funchal cheap flights by offering more restricted services than the major scheduled or low cost airlines.

There are daily flights from many UK cities to Madeira Airport, located 14 miles (22km) from Funchal town. Budget airlines to Madeira fly from main London airports and UK cities such as Birmingham, Bristol, Glasgow, Manchester and Newcastle.
