Jet2CityBreaks has just announced that it will be flying to Madeira’s largest city, Funchal, from East Midlands Airport.

As hopes of beach holidays, city breaks… in fact any kind of getaway, start to have the promise of reality, Jet2 has expanded its range.

The launch of city breaks from East Midlands Airport to the popular location is the latest addition to the holiday company’s plans and follows the announcement that it is extending its holiday season.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “We are continuing to see huge demand for Winter 21/22 and Summer 22 from East Midlands Airport, so we are adding Funchal to our offering to give customers and independent travel agents in the region even greater choice.”

The tour operator will fly from East Midlands to Funchal on a Monday year-round from Monday, November 1, 2021.

Holidaymakers will have access to a range of 3 to 5-star hotels in Madeira’s 500-year-old capital.

Steve added: “The stunning city with its traditional Portuguese architecture, cosmopolitan dining and shopping scene and lively nightlife, means it has an endless list of attractions and experiences to keep everyone entertained.

“With a fantastic choice of flights and hotels on sale to Funchal from East Midlands Airport for Winter 21/22 and Summer 22, we know that the addition of Funchal to our city breaks portfolio will be welcome news to holidaymakers in the region looking to getaway. It also expands our Madeira programme even further, adding to our already popular programme of flights and package holidays.”
