Flight from New York JFK to Madeira, Portugal on SATA Azores Airlines

This direct flight makes Madeira even more accessible for Americans looking for a European island vacation

Madeira Promotion Bureau and SATA Group are delighted to announce the permanent continuation of direct flight between New York (JFK) in Funchal (FNC).

With a flight time of approximately seven hours, this direct flight makes Madeira even more accessible for Americans seeking a European island vacation with an impressive food and wine scene, outdoor adventure, and rich culture and history.

The non-stop flight will operate via SATA Azores Airlines all year round from November 3, 2022.

The relaunch of this flight is a direct result of the success of its initial launch in the fall of 2021, which marked the first-ever direct flight to Madeira from a US gateway.

“This is a very happy moment for the Autonomous Region of Madeira regarding the revolutionary Madeira-New York year-round connection. Such a milestone for the market itself and people looking to travel year-round said Eduardo Jesus, President of the Madeira Promotion Office and Regional Secretary for Tourism and Culture.

The Portuguese paradise island of Madeira is located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, with impressive landscapes over 300 square miles of mountains, valleys and beaches.

Blessed with a year-round spring-like climate, the archipelago offers a wide range of offerings to travelers, including five-star accommodation, Michelin-starred restaurants, and award-winning Madeiran wines and cuisine.

With flight schedules allowing travelers to plan an idyllic seven-day trip to explore all the island has to offer, there’s never been a better time to visit.

During the International Air Transport Association (IATA) winter period, the new flight will depart weekly from New York on Thursdays at 9:20 p.m. (local time) and arrive in Madeira at 8:35 a.m. (local time) on Fridays.

The return flight from Madeira to New York is scheduled to depart Friday at 5:05 p.m. and arrive in New York at 7:55 p.m. This flight schedule will adjust to the start of the IATA summer period in March 2023, departing New York on Monday at 8:05 p.m. (local time) and arriving in Madeira at 9:00 a.m. (local time) the following day.

The return flight will leave Madeira on Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. and arrive in New York at 6:50 p.m.

The Madeira Islands are open to US tourists, with no restrictions or testing requirements.
