The Largest Independent Specialist Tour Operator to the Portuguese Island of Madeira is to operate two flights this year direct from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) for the first time.

The departures on 16th May and 24th October will give travelers in the region the chance to sample the delights of Madeira, renowned for giving visitors a unique and unforgettable holiday experience.

The archipelago of Madeira is located about 350 miles from the northwest coast of Africa and 520 miles southwest of Portugal itself. It is of volcanic origin but unlike the other islands in the group which are barren, Madeira is lush and verdant, boasting an exceptionally temperate climate and rich agricultural resources.

The many historical monuments, squares and streets in the capital of Funchal and the enchanting gardens, picturesque villages, amazing landscapes, impressive volcanic caves, rugged coast lines and beautiful natural beaches make Madeira well worth a visit.

Nick Smillie, Sales Director for Peel Airports said: “We are sure that lots of passengers from across the region will want to take advantage of this opportunity to travel direct from LJLA to Madeira. We expect these flights to prove popular and hope that it will encourage Atlantic Holidays to operate even more services from here next year.
“Madeira is a beautiful island with botanical gardens and a wealth of high quality hotels.”

Dino Toouli Sales & Marketing Manager at Atlantic Holidays said “We are delighted to add Liverpool John Lennon Airport to our portfolio and we are confident that Madeira will prove extremely popular to those living in the catchment area. We will exclusively be re positioning a Monarch Airlines A320 aircraft to operate this flight solely for Atlantic Holidays”

Holidays can be booked with Atlantic Holidays on 01452 381 888, via their web site at atlanticholidays.net/lpl or through a local travel agent.
