About Funchal Airport

Funchal Airport is situated 18kms from the downtown Funchal. It is located on the southern coast of Madeira. It is small, but functional, one terminal airport, which is very busy in the summer months, so pre-booking your automobile makes sense.

Flights are mainly by charter flights such as Thompson Travel. The airport is equipped to handle the disabled, with lifts, ramps, wide access toilets and reserved parking, close to entrance.

A very good selection of cafes, bars and restaurants are spread throughout the airport. Travel agencies have kiosks in the airport and will happily assist with hotel booking, car hire or onward travel.

Madeira, or the floating garden, got the name from its rich volcanic soil, that enables the production of a wide range of crops from bananas to the famous Madeira grape.

Small and diverse in landscape, it is an all year round destination, that provides a first class service to the tourist. Luxury hotels, villas, bars, cafes and a wide variety of restaurants, not forgetting the nightclubs and jazz clubs.

If you need a break form the beach, then Funchal will not disappoint you. If you have an interest in horticulture, then visit the Monte Tropical Gardens and the Quintado Palheiro Botanical Gardens.

Venture further out of town to visit the vineyards and sample the delicious wines of Madeira. For a more rugged and changing scenery, take your rental vehicle to the north coast. Please be aware that the roads are narrow and twisting, so a small car may make the drive less stressful. Whilst in this region, look out for triangular houses, which are the traditional homes of the islanders.
