Funchal Airport Name Pronunciation?

Tue Feb 01, 2005 11:10 am

Greetings!

I am wondering, the airport Funchal/Madeira, how do you pronounce it? I had often talked about the airport with friends and am pretty bloody sure I'd been getting the name wrong!  Laugh out loud

Thanks in advance -

Funchal is pronounced foon-shaal, but you dont quite pronounce the "n".

Madeira is pronounced Muh-day-rah.

But isnt the airport actually called Santa Cruz?

Thanks for your reply Valesco! I was WAY off, unfortunately.

Now I can go into conversations with the correct name, although I could also, as you have somewhat suggested, just call it Santa Cruz  Wink/being sarcastic
