Funchal Airport customer review

We are just back from a fine week in Madeira. The airport - hugely improved over recent years - is a complete pleasure to use. The aircraft captain was very complimentary about the fast efficient turn-around of the aircraft which got us home on schedule despite some strong headwinds.

Funchal Airport customer review

This is a really pleasant airport. Spotlessly clean and a credit to the staff. Restaurant prices are very good for an airport and the fare is of a more than reasonable standard.

Funchal Airport customer review

I can only concur with the previous comments as regards the airport - in our case the holiday company that we had gone to Maderia with transferred all their clients to a luxury Hotel in Funchal at the outset so we only spent a short time at the Airport in both directions. The Maderians are very proud of their tiny airport and quite rightly so - however the dramatic landings and take off can not be over emphasised. But despite the above we can not wait to return to what can only be described as paradise!

Funchal Airport customer review

Facilities are clean staff helpful and friendly. Unsure as to why passports are checked so thouroghly on the way out guess it's the times we live in. Superb large play area for the children and a viewing terrace to die for. A fantastic view of planes taking off and landing. I'm sure if things got busy and the weather bad and delays ensued things might go pear shaped. I could think of worst airports around the world this could happen!

Funchal Airport customer review

Used Funchal on 3 occasions now. Flights being held up due to all baggage being x-ray'd-- May 2005. One suitcase was opened without my knowledge and loaded as such. Very angry about that. Poor P/A system is not very clear and the info screens all blank---? If I was a single traveller I would have been lost. Held on runway while pilot requested removal of seagulls prior to take off. Should really be observed by the tower.

Funchal Airport customer review

Was held up at Funchal airport 14th.Feb 2005. Flights out impossible due to adverse weather conditions. Airport staff amazingly efficient everywhere kept clean and cafe and restaurant worked hard to keep large numbers of waiting passengers happy. When it became evident that all flights in and out would have to be cancelled all passengers transported to overnight accommodation (in my case a 5* resort) where we were made very welcome and given dinner/ breakfast and generally cared for. If this has to happen to you pray that it happens in Madeira!

Funchal Airport customer review

A dramatic runway for take offs and landings! Very clean and efficient airport - arrived through security and luggage collected and en route into Funchal itself in less than 20 mins. and the return flight check in was very efficient. small airport and limited facilities when leaving but no problems whatsoever

Funchal Airport customer review

Flew out of Funchal recently to LHR: one EU country to another. Boarding time was given as 1140 for a 1210 departure. There was just one immigration official carefully scrutinising "all" passengers' passports before we reached the departure gate. The queue which had formed at 11.35 had to be seen to be believed. I cleared the immigration desk at 1210 the queue still trailing behind me. "Don't think we'll be leaving on time" was the comment heard from the passenger behind me with a resigned expression on his face. I understand the need for scrutiny on arrival on the island but is it necessary on leaving? And for passengers with EU passports going to another EU country? Nice airport but efficiency of passenger handling on this occasion was poor.

Funchal Airport customer review

Flew to Funchal in November 2003 with GB Airways. I must admit that Funchal has definitely the best small international airport in the world. From the moment you land to Madeira as a tourist to the time you return home the airport is exceptionally beautiful in every way possible. Apart the from the dramatic landings and take offs from the airport's runway only perhaps overtaken by that old Hong Kong Kai Tak Funchal airport is set in a very scenic location and looks rather unique from miles away. OK the airport facilities are obviously very simple inside compared to large Dubai or Changi for example but Funchal airport is very clean with friendly and efficient staff whether they are check-in agents catering assistants immigration officers or even security guards. There is one restaurant / bar in the landside plus another one in the airside and food / drink are excellent value for money. Both restaurants have fair size roof terraces which would really please those aviation enthusiasts. How many international airports do you now have with good value restaurants and viewing terraces these days? Anybody flying in and out of Funchal airport in my opinion will not regret the experience all.
