With the new Funchal-Lisbon air shuttle, “TAP creates a new product that gives customers more frequent flights, greater flexibility in changing reservations on the same day and greater comfort”, reads the information released today by the airline.

As of March 28, TAP will increase the number of frequencies to seven flights in each direction, with departures from Madeira International Airport scheduled at 05:15, 06:05, 09:50, 12:35, 16:00 , 19:25 and 22:25.

Returns from Lisbon are scheduled for 07:15, 10:00, 13:25, 16:50, 19:50, 22:10 and 23:25.

With this programme, the carrier ensures that it meets “the air transport needs of Madeirans and allows for optimised connections in the Lisbon hub to flights to and from other destinations on the TAP network, thus also boosting the increase in tourist demand to Madeira”.
