Low cost airline Monarch has enhanced the content of its website, flymonarch.com, with the introduction of a visitor reviews and staff picks section. Both passengers and Monarch's staff have been offering their views on the destinations in Monarch's scheduled network, with the best reviews featured on the website. So far flymonarch.com has nearly 100 reviews submitted by both passengers and staff.
With more and more travellers now choosing to plan and book their holidays independently, the focus for destination research has shifted away from the traditional holiday brochures to online travel sites containing real-life reviews provided by other travellers.
To make this research simpler, Monarch is inviting people to send in reviews from the Monarch destinations they have visited. These provide other passengers with insights into them; the best and worst bits, recommendations for trips, sights to explore, restaurants to visit as well as real experiences. In addition, Monarch staff, who are often lucky enough to visit many of the featured destinations, are also providing their top tips of things to see and do. All reviews are vetted to avoid spam or advertising abuse.
Commenting on the success of the new visitor review section, Catherine Kite, Monarch's Direct Marketing & E-Commerce Manager, said," It is important for us to provide our passengers with as many relevant services via flymonarch.com as we can. We are delighted that so many people have responded with their thoughts and feelings on the destinations we serve via our scheduled services.
She continues, “Online social communication and user generated content is on the increase and we recognise how important it is for our customers to get involved and share their experiences and opinions. We are the first low-cost airline to offer a review section of the destinations to which we fly and its popularity is clear for all to see. Hopefully many more people will offer their views on their visits to Spain or Portugal after flying with us."
Destination reviews for any of Monarch’s scheduled destinations can be submitted online at flymonarch.com or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Reviews can be viewed via the destination pages on the site.
Monarch operates scheduled flights to Spain, Gibraltar and Portugal from Aberdeen, Birmingham, Blackpool, London Gatwick, London Luton and Manchester. Fares include complimentary daily newspapers, a refreshing hot towel service and require no additional payment for checking-in baggage; also available is a unique range of tasty hot and cold meals with prices from £3.00. Seats can be pre-booked at £5 per one-way flight to avoid the last minute free-for-all, or for only £15, why not try one of the 48 extra-legroom seats which offer up to six inches of extra space? Regular travellers are rewarded too, with a range of benefits through the airline’s loyalty scheme, Vantage Club.
