Direct flights Toronto<>Funchal and Boston<>Funchal have started

Direct flights have been initiated between the United States, Canada, and Madeira Island.

The inaugural flights between Toronto (Canada) and Funchal (Madeira Island) and between Boston (USA) and Funchal marked the beginning of the 2024 summer operation to Madeira Island. In addition to the direct flights, there are also more connections via Ponta Delgada and a direct weekly flight, already operating, between New York and Funchal.

For Graça Silva, Director of Sales, Marketing and Communication at SATA Group, "These two direct operations represent the conclusion of consistent work with our partners in the United States, Canada and the Madeira Archipelago, which have allowed us to expand the offer to this Archipelago with these direct flights, in addition to the New York operation and flights between the Azores to Madeira Island that Azores Airlines has ensured over the years".

The direct connection between Canada and the Madeira Archipelago operates on a weekly basis, with departures from Madeira Island on Fridays. In the opposite direction, flights depart Toronto on Saturdays.

The direct flight between Boston and Funchal consists of a direct flight departing from Boston on Tuesdays and returning to Funchal on Wednesdays.

There are also seven weekly connections from Boston or Toronto via Ponta Delgada that passengers who want to travel from North America to Madeira Island and vice versa can take advantage of. 

Bookings are available through SATA Azores Airlines' channels (website, counters, and sales store) and travel agencies.
