There are two airports: Madeira International Airport - on Madeira, and Porto Santo Airport, on the island of Porto Santo. Connections between the islands are either by air or ferryboats, which also transport cars. Surface transport on the islands is trouble-free thanks to the modern road structure, which has been significantly improved in recent years. Practically all points of these islands are served by a good road and transport network.
Visitors coming from the European Union, members of the Schengen Treaty, are granted unrestricted entry. Visitors from member states that are not signatories to this treaty need an identification document. International visitors should have a valid passport, and in some cases, a visa to visit Portugal might be requested. There is no need for any kind of vaccination.
Several airline companies operate at the Madeira International Airport. Both the Portuguese flagship company (TAP – Air Portugal) and several private companies (AirLuxor and Sata) provide about 16 daily flights between Madeira, Lisbon and Oporto. Weekly direct flights are available to and from London, Paris, Frankfurt, Zurich, Helsinki and several other destinations in Europe.
Our special registration package, which can be booked using regonline, will include transfer from the Airport to Vidamar, for participants who choose to stay at the conference hotel.
