Inaugural Flight Connecting Toronto to Funchal Cancelled – Latest Update

The highly anticipated inaugural flight connecting Toronto, Canada, to Funchal, Madeira, has been unexpectedly cancelled. The flight, which was set to mark the beginning of the new route, was operated by EuroAtlantic Airways using a Boeing 767 aircraft. The scheduled arrival time at Madeira International Airport – Cristiano Ronaldo was 11:15 pm on the intended day of the flight.

Unfortunately, this cancellation has also affected the subsequent flight, S4 267, which was supposed to depart from Funchal to New York at 6:40 am the following day. Both flights were part of the Azores Airlines operation, with EuroAtlantic Airways managing the routes.

Despite attempts to reach out to Azores Airlines for an explanation regarding the sudden cancellations, no response has been received. It is worth noting that the Porto – Toronto flight, scheduled earlier in the day, was also cancelled, further complicating the situation.

The unexpected turn of events has left passengers and aviation enthusiasts disappointed, especially considering the upcoming launch of the Boston-Funchal connection on June 4th. With Madeira Airport expanding its direct connections to North America, this setback poses a challenge for the airline industry in the region.

As travelers and aviation authorities await further updates on the situation, the reasons behind the flight cancellations remain unclear. Stay tuned for more developments on this unfolding story.
