2008 News Archive - Flights - Monarch Scheduled goes double daily to Spain from Gatwick
10 02 2004
From 1 May 2004, low cost carrier Monarch Scheduled is to double the frequency of flights from London Gatwick to Alicante and Malaga, to offer two flights a day. This represents an increase of over 71 per cent in its programme from Gatwick since last year. The airline will continue to operate its daily Faro flight from the airport.
This increase in frequency is in response to the high demand for its flights since the carrier launched its new services from Gatwick last summer and meets the demands of customers seeking a choice of flight timings on every day in the week.
Jonathan Crick, commercial director commented: “Monarch Scheduled’s approach has proved extremely popular at Gatwick and demand has exceeded our expectations. Bookings have matched those of our larger established services from London Luton and Manchester which is a very encouraging result for our first year in the competitive Gatwick market.”
Prices from London Gatwick start from £49* one way to Alicante and Malaga**. IATA agent’s commission is payable at 7%.
Monarch Scheduled also offers a timetable of flights to Spain, Portugal and Gibraltar from London Luton and Manchester. A frequent flyer programme ‘Vantage Club’ is available for regular travellers.

**Update May 2004
Monarch Scheduled announced it is to introduce a new, innovative in-flight menu, which is available on all flights from 2004. Instead of offering the traditional set meal included in the price, passengers will now have the option of buying a delicious hot meal, freshly baked snack, light salad, imaginatively filled sandwich or full English breakfast - at any time of day.
Hot drinks are also available, plus a selection of wines, spirits and minerals. Fares include complimentary daily newspapers, hot towels, in-flight TV and reserved seating. A frequent flyer scheme - Vantage Club - offers a host of benefits for regular travellers.Previous Page
