"TUI UK" anticipated flights between the United Kingdom and Madeira by about two months and has already scheduled its first trip, after the pandemic, to 26 October. The guarantee is given by the regional secretary of Tourism, stressing that there will be a weekly direct connection London (Gatwick) - Funchal with an installed capacity of 189 seats.
According to the tutelage, this is a reality that occurs due to the combination of determining factors: '' Cases of recognition of the Region as a safe destination; for assuming by the Brian Government the regional epidemiological situation well differentiated from the national context, as a result of the persistence of the Government of Madeira with the Governments of the Republic and the United Kingdom, as well as through the communications also made at the level of embassies, and also due to the intervention by the Madeira Promotion Association, which, together with the promotion campaign never carried out in that territory, has had very close contact with the operators, in this specific case, with '' TUI UK ''.
With the anticipation of TUI UK's operation, the United Kingdom will be served, from the last week of October, with 31 weekly flights, which translate into a capacity of more than 18,400 seats every seven days.
