How to reach Madeira by plane?

Nearly all airlines included Funchal airport to their flight plans. BUT BE AWARE: They don't fly every day! So please search for different days! 

Recommended is always booking a direct flight! To search for your flight please check via google search the airports next to your location with destination airport Funchal for several different days! Also check the smaller airports usually used by Ryanair or easyjet.

For example: From the region Aachen/Düsseldorf/Cologne/Köln the cheapest flight is every Wednesday and Sunday provided by Ryanair form Brussels Charleroi NOT from Brussels International Airport. So don't seach just for departing the big / well known airports - also check the smaller airports - here you can check all airports with direct line to Funchal. Best is to check for several days per week. On Monday other airports are connected then Tuesday f.e.

For our Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish or Danish guests, TuiFly offers the following links depending on their country of origin:

How to reach Madeira by ship?

We already welcomed guests with a blood pressure not able to fly any more! For those guest we recommended booking a passage on a cruiseship. To check all cruiseships heading/departing to Funchal please click here. To book just one way from your next harbour to Funchal you have to call the shipping company - it's not possible to book online - or go to the next travel agency.

If you like rough sea, sailing and a life threatening adventure (STRONGLY NOT RECOMMENDED WITH KIDS) you can also check for booking a charter boat! There are boats who sail regularily from Lisbon to Funchal - click here for example. Or open an acoount on platforms connecting ship owners with potential clients - click here for example. But be aware that a sea swell with wave altitudes between 3 and 5 m are usual between Madeira and Lisbon and the distance between Funchal and Lisbon is aprox. 1.000 km on sea without a stop!
