Top-Pick for your Madeira Airport Transfer

Madeira is an archipelago of 4 islands in Portugal, located just north of Africa. Famous for its towering cliff faces, year-round warm weather and volcanic beaches, Madeira is a stunning place to enjoy a tropical vacation at. The quickest and easiest way to get from Funchal airport to the city centre is by taking a reliable Madeira airport taxi. 

From the moment you land at Madeira Airport (FNC), your driver will be patiently waiting for you just outside of the passenger terminal, holding a sign with your name on it. After a friendly greeting, your driver will lend a hand with your luggage and will lead you to your pre-selected vehicle. Even if your flight is delayed, there’s no need to worry. All of our drivers receive alerts on any changes to your flight time, so they will always be there when you need them. 

As you begin your scenic ride to Funchal, your driver will answer any questions you have about the island and will share a few local tips and tricks to help you make the most out of your time.

Directions for your Funchal Airport Taxi

Madeira (or Funchal) Airport is geographically important as it’s located on a piece of land jutting out over the sea. FNC is located 21 km away from the capital Funchal, so taking a Madeira airport taxi shouldn’t take longer than 20 minutes. 

Once you’re sitting comfortably in your Madeira airport taxi, your driver will head North to Ac. ao Aeroporto Internacional do Funchal. After around 600 meters, your driver will take the E.R. 101 ramp towards Funchal, before merging onto the VR1. You will follow this road for around 8 km, before taking Exit 11 to Funchal Centro. You will then take a right onto Travessa da Fundoa de Baixo, a left onto Estrada da Fundoa, followed by the 3rd exit onto Estr. Cmte. Camacho de Freitas at the roundabout. Finally, you will take a left towards Caminho do Lombo Segundo and will follow this road into the heart of Funchal.
