Jet2 announces new route from Newcastle Airport to Madeira, Funchal
Jet2CityBreaks has launched a new city break package to Funchal, Madeira from Newcastle Airport which includes a choice of 3 to 5 star hotels.
Holidaymakers will be able to visit the sunny Portuguese island on a Monday all year round from November 1, 2021 with packages that include a range of board types.
Packages, which include flights, hotel, luggage, coach transfers and ATOL protection, start from £ 445 per person for a seven-day break.
The news comes as the ban on overseas travel is to be lifted for people in England from May 17 as part of the upcoming easing of restrictions on coronaviruses.
But the green list of foreign holiday destinations is not expected to be published until the end of the week.
A risk-based traffic light system will be introduced with different rules for returning travelers depending on the list their destination is on.
People arriving from a green location will not be quarantined, while those returning from somewhere on the Amber List must self-isolate for at least five days.
The Red List requires a 10 night stay in a quarantine hotel at a hefty cost of £ 1,750 for solo travelers.
