There are regular flights to Madeira from several departure points in the UK, which makes visiting the destination a breeze.
The number of low-cost airlines flying to the island, such as Jet2, easyJet and TUI, helps to keep costs down, and if you book at the last minute, you could end up with a bargain.
British Airways, easyJet have direct flights from London Gatwick (LGW) to Madeira Airport (FNC), which is also known as Cristiano Ronaldo Madeira International Airport. Flights are available throughout the year, with a flight time of just under four hours. Once you’ve landed, you can rent a car or take a taxi to your destination if your hotel doesn’t have a shuttle service to pick you up. The airport is about 21km (13 miles) away from Funchal and you should expect to pay about £20 for a taxi to the city centre.
Travellers outside of London can reach Madeira easily too. Jet2 flies direct from Nottingham (EMA), while easyJet dominates the route between Bristol (BRS) and Madeira.
In addition to commercial airlines, TUI offers charter flights from the UK to Madeira.
