Easyjet cancelled all of their flights to and from Funchal today due to bad weather - very strong wind making it difficult to land. All passengers departing from Madeira to UK have been placed in hotel in Santa Cruz on half board basis and flights are due to resume of boxing day. Interesting though that all other airlines did fly and land in and out of Madeira today! Feel very sorry for all passengers - those still in the UK who were looking forward to a Christmas Day in Madeira and will now have to try and scrape a Christmas lunch together from somewhere etc and for those in Funchal who may have been travelling back to spend Christmas with family/friends in the UK. The forecast was apparently for the strong winds to pass through - hence other airlines did land, so it does make you wonder why Easyjet are so very quick to cancel their flights.
