Passenger numbers returned strongly in June following the ash cloud disruptions of the past two months, with Monarch’s scheduled traffic figures up almost 3% compared to June 2009.
A mixture of short-haul and mid-haul destinations figured strongly in the airline’s performance, with Barcelona and Gibraltar joined by the Cypriot gateway of Larnaca along with Lanzarote in the Canaries as the top performers. Monarch’s new scheduled services to Turkey, launched in early May with flights to Antalya, Bodrum and Dalaman, also featured strongly with over 10,000 passengers flying to the Eastern Mediterranean during the month.

“Despite the difficulties and uncertainty caused by the recent volcanic ash episodes our figures clearly demonstrate that people want to fly and will continue to do so,” commented Monarch Airlines Managing Director Tim Jeans. “Our route network is performing well under what remain very tough market conditions, and seats are selling fast for the summer so there’s no time to waste in booking for this summer!”
