When is the best time to book a flight to Funchal?

To ensure you get the cheapest price possible for a flight to Funchal, you should look to book at least 34 days in advance of your intended travel date. The price of your flight may increase if you delay and leave booking until a week or so before departure.

Which day is cheapest to fly to Funchal?

What time of day is cheapest to fly to Funchal?

To get the best value, try booking a flight in the morning when visiting Funchal. Generally the prices will increase for flights in the evening as these tend to have higher demand.

How long is the flight to Funchal?

Flights to Funchal, Madeira, Portugal, can last anywhere from 24h 20min – 37h 25min. One of the reasons why these flights and stopovers are so long when compared to other destinations in Europe is because of the lack of direct flights between Cristiano Ronaldo International Airport, Funchal (FNC), Madeira, Portugal, and the four main international airports in South Africa, namely OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg (JNB), Lanseria International Airport in Johannesburg (HLA), Cape Town International Airport in Cape Town (CPT), and King Shaka International Airport in Durban (DUR). Funchal flight deals usually include at least two stop-overs before you reach Madeira. Also, keep in mind that if you do decide to route yourself through South Africa’s main international gateway, OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, you would need to add in at least 5h to your connecting flight from Cape Town, and 3h to your connecting flight from Durban.

Are there non-stop flights to Funchal?

Despite South Africa’s sizeable Portuguese population (with a lot of people who hail from Madeira), there are no direct non-stop flights to Cristiano Ronaldo International Airport, Funchal, Madeira, Portugal, from any South African city. The best Funchal flight deals will usually route you through at least two stops, like the flights from Johannesburg to Funchal via Amsterdam Schiphol (AMS) and Lisbon Portela (LIS) on TAP Air Portugal and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, or the flight via Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) and Lisbon Portela on TAP Air Portugal and Air France. Another option is the flight from Johannesburg or Cape Town to Istanbul (IST), connecting to Lisbon (all with Turkish Airlines), and then onto Funchal with TAP Air Portugal. For flights from smaller South African cities, such as Port Elizabeth, East London and George, an effective way to get to Funchal is to fly to Johannesburg and then connect to your international flight from there.

How do you get from Funchal International Airport to the Funchal city centre?

SAM Madeira Bus offers a bus service from the airport to central Funchal. It runs every day of the year except Christmas Day. Trips to the city take about half an hour, and most hotels can be reached within 40 to 50min. You can tell the driver where you wish to alight. A ticket to travel from the airport to the city centre costs around R90.

What are some things to do in Funchal?

Funchal has been the capital of Madeira for over five centuries, and is steeped in history and tradition. There are myriad museums in Funchal, including the Sacred Art Museum of Funchal, which contains painting, art and gold designs from the 15th to the 19th centuries. In the middle of Madeira is the Laurisilva Forest, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Owing to the warm subtropical Mediterranean climate, Funchal and Madeira are Portugal’s most popular tourist destination. The Funchal Cable Car (gondola lift) runs between the lower part of the city and the botanical gardens. And of course, when in Madeira, you have to try the food, from Portuguese rolls and garlic prawns to calamari, trinchado and Portuguese steak. Garlic and butter are staple foods in Portuguese cuisine, and nowhere is this more prominent, from a gastronomic point of view, than in Funchal and Madeira.
