21 04 2008
Award winning low fares airline Monarch is re-launching services between Manchester and Gibraltar, with a three times a week service commencing in September.
The route, which was withdrawn in July 2006, will operate on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 12 September and is now back on sale via www.monarch.co.uk. Fares start from £48 one way, including all taxes and charges.
Commenting on the re-launch of flights from Manchester to Gibraltar, managing director of Monarch’s scheduled services, Liz Savage said, “We are delighted to be bringing direct services to Gibraltar back to the Northwest which will operate in addition to our ongoing services from Luton. There continues to be huge demand for flights from our customers, and this has been reflected by the number of requests that we have received from them over the past few years.
“Gibraltar provides an ideal gateway to both The Rock plus the many holiday hotspots in Southern Spain. Combined with Monarch’s low fares and high care ethic, the route will undoubtedly prove to be a welcome addition to Monarch’s destination portfolio from Manchester, where it remains the largest scheduled international carrier operating from the airport”.
Monarch operates scheduled flights to Spain, Gibraltar, Portugal and Cyprus from Birmingham, London Gatwick, London Luton and Manchester airports and was named as Leisure Airline of the Year in recent Travel Industry Awards for the second year in succession. In addition to year-round low fares, Monarch also offers a unique range of tasty hot and cold meals onboard with prices from £3.00. Seats can be pre-booked at £5 per one-way flight to avoid the last minute free-for-all experienced on some other airlines, or from only £15, extra-legroom seats are available, 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.
Passengers travelling on scheduled flights can also avoid the queues at the airport and take advantage of online check-in which is available between seven days and 4.5 hours prior to departure.
