The holiday destination is described as "a much-loved island get away" with warm year-round temperatures.

Madeira is currently restriction-free as it remains on the travel corridor list, meaning those arriving into England from the island do not have to quarantine.

Owain Jones, managing director of Wizz Air, said: “Another week, another new route officially launched by Wizz Air in the UK. It is fantastic to see our route network go from strength to strength, as we provide affordable, direct connections to the UK’s favourite holiday destinations.

"With its warm climate, unique natural beauty and promise of adventure, Madeira offers holidaymakers the chance to explore and unwind in equal measure.

"Madeira remains on the travel corridor list, so passengers living in England do not have to isolate on return.

"As the cold winter months get underway, now is the ideal time to book a trip away to the sunshine.

"We look forward to welcoming customers old and new onboard our young, green and ultra-efficient Airbus aircraft fleet.”
