This month the low-cost airline Easyjet will start regular flights to Madeira Island, and it seems that other budget airliners will follow soon (next year) this example. This is good news for the regional tourist sector on the island …. and also for the madeirean travellers that gives them the ability to visit more interesting countries for a much cheaper price.
However …. I wonder … are cheap flights to Madeira really a good idea?
Some people are afraid that the o-so-quiet-and-relaxing Floating Garden is going to be invaded by thousands of â€˜new consumersâ€™ (also known as the party-tourists) … who have left their legacy on other former-paradisiacal islands such as Ibiza.
Others think the growth of the low-budget tourists will cause chocking changes … forcing the island to focus towards the visitors needs and disregard the cultural environment the island is well-known for.
Or … some feel there is no need to be concerned. It is a golden opportunity for the Pearl of the Atlantic to glow like a diamond on the world map.
This is a good reason to do with you the One-question Interview.
Dear reader … our question for you is the following:
What do you think the consequences will be when more low-cost flights to Madeira will take place the next few years?
