14 New Monarch Routes Go on Sale

Flights go on sale today on 14 new routes for 2012 from Monarch Airlines’ four UK bases to Italy, Croatia and Greece. Two Airbus A320s will be added to Monarch’s fleet from March 2012, in the start of expansion plans to expand the fleet from 30 to around 40 aircraft. The routes comprise Manchester to Dubrovnik, Milan, Venice and Verona
; Birmingham to Dubrovnik, Heraklion, Milan, Rome and Venice
; London Gatwick to Dubrovnik, Heraklion, Milan and Venice; and London Luton to Rome.

Managing Director of Monarch Airlines, Kevin George, said: “The strategy for Monarch Airlines is now firmly focused on its scheduled operations and we are delighted to be adding these new routes to our already extensive network of leisure destinations across Europe.

“Adding Italy to our network will further reinforce our position as the leading leisure focused airline serving the Mediterranean and the Canaries. The addition of two new aircraft to the fleet is great news, and marks the start of our fleet expansion plans, which will see the fleet grow from 30 to around 40 aircraft in the medium term.

“In addition to growing our network, we are committed to providing high levels of care and service for our customers and are constantly striving for innovative ways of providing great value benefits for them at year-round low fares. The introduction of our discounted ‘Happy Hour’ cheap flights and our fight against unjust debit and credit card fees are examples of ways in which Monarch Airlines looks after its customers and we are excited about introducing these initiatives across our expanding network.”
