The reinforcement of frequencies after the resumption and for the regional secretary of Tourism and Culture Eduardo Jesus '' this bet in Madeira is the result of a set of circumstances that, combined, make Jet'2 consequent in this schedule "The secretary stresses "the good behavior of the destination Madeira in terms of health, which allowed this and other companies, operators, tourists and the media to look at the Region with increased confidence in security".
He also pointed out that Madeira was able to "communicate the epidemiological picture with rigor and we also showed the World that we prepare ourselves with pragmatism and not with useless words in the newspapers, so that people who disembark at Madeira Airport and Porto Santo are aware that they are doing with the safety of a Covid-19 test, previously done at the origin, which is always the best option or, in the last case, they can do it in the normal way after landing and wait for the result, which is fast".
He also stressed that, as he never lowered his arms, he saw all the effort rewarded in early September, when London put Madeira on the green corridor.
