Wizz Air plane at Madeira Airport

JM reports that the low-cost airline Wizz Air, based in Hungary, started today its regular operation to Madeira.

The inaugural flight landed at the Madeira airport shortly after 7:00 pm, carrying around 240 passengers from Katowice.

Yesterday saw intense activity at the airport, which has already registered more than 70 air connections before Wizz Air arrived.

The airport has already seen additional activity over the last few days with the Air Force carrying out on Friday night the urgent medical transport of a patient between the island of Porto Santo and Madeira using a C-295M. On Thursday, Squadron 751- ‘Pumas’, made two urgent trips between the islands.

  1. Think the article needs a bit of an edit.

    . Wizz Air has neither started a ‘Hungary operation’ nor is it that ‘the low-cost airline Wizz Air, based in Hungary, started today its regular operation to Madeira’.

    Wizz Air has been flying to Madeira for quite a while from Luton and more recently from Gatwick. They have just started a flight from Poland, Katowice. I think that’s what the article is trying to convey.

    Despite being Hungarian registered, they do not (so far) fly from Hungary to Madeira.
