2013 News - Flights - Monarch gives schools a chance to win the best day trip ever
13 03 2013
A nationwide appeal has been launched today by Monarch, the leading scheduled leisure airline, asking for head teachers to help them in their quest to make flying fun! Monarch will be taking three lucky schools on the day trip of their lives.
The airline will give six hundred children - up to 200 from each school - exclusive use of a Monarch aircraft on 24th April 2013, with a range of fun activities in the air and on the ground.*
One flight will depart from Manchester to learn the real story of Romeo & Juliet in Verona, complemented with an acting lesson during the flight. The second will depart from London Gatwick to visit the Zeppelin Museum in Friedrichshafen with a German lesson during their flight. The third will depart from Birmingham and spend their day exploring the ancient city walls in Dubrovnik after a history lesson in the air.
The appeal is targeting secondary school children in years 7-9, aged 11-14, from anywhere in the UK.

“We all remember what it was like to be a child and the excitement that came with flying, so we’re proud to be promoting our campaign that ‘puts the fun back into flying’ for everyone. All schools that enter the competition will be considered and we are looking forward to receiving lots of entries,” said Kevin George, Managing Director, Monarch Airlines.
Head teachers need to nominate their schools by visiting www.monarch.co.uk/offers/flights/win-the-best-day-trip-ever. The closing date for entries is Friday 5th April 2013.
