Where is Funchal Airport?


Located in Funchal, the largest city as well as the municipal seat and the capital of Madeira, Funchal Airport is only a short drive from the city centre.  The city boasts a population of over 100,000 and has been the capital of Madeira for over 500 years.   The name Funchal has its roots in the land, having been so called due to the abundance of wild fennel in the area.

Using its more formal name Madeira Airport, Funchal Airport has also, in its time, been known as Santa Catarina Airport.  Dating back to the mid 1960’s the airport welcomes its fair share of national and international traffic.  Known as being a bit of a trickly landing spot, the airport has recently undergone substantial improvement.
