Madeira Funhal Airport Mini Guide

Madeira Airport which is informally also known as Funchal Airport is situated near Funchal, Madeira in Portugal. It used to be renowned for its very short runway which surrounded by mountainous regions and the ocean meant it was difficult to land there for even the most experienced pilots.  The airport has three information desks designated by unusual acronyms.
 
If you have pre-booked car hire, the desks are found on level 0 of the airport. Access to the city is very easy and quick.
