Is it Fly MI? or Fly Me? The last option would have been a good name for an airline …. but Miguel Freitas, former TAP Portugal captain, decided to call it Fly MI … as MI stands for Madeira Islands.
The new airline Fly MI (Funchal) is planning to operate a pair of 190-seat Boeing 737-800s on regular flights from Funchal and Porto Santo to Lisbon and charters from both islands (Madeira and Porto Santo) to Europe.
So there you have it (at last!) … Madeira is going to have its own airline … and its about time!
When? Soon …. I think. Will keep you posted.
