Staying ahead of the game is key for success in the low-cost airline market and Monarch is once again leading the way by announcing its Winter 06/07 schedule – ten weeks earlier than last year.

The schedule, which went on sale this week via www.flymonarch.com sees new routes and increased frequencies from all four UK bases - London Gatwick, London Luton, Manchester and Birmingham. .

  • Birmingham to Murcia – three flights per week

  • Manchester to Menorca – two flights per week: the first winter flights from the North to Menorca

  • Commenting on the early launch of the schedule, Tim Jeans, managing director of Monarch’s scheduled division said, “It is fantastic news that we have been able to publish our Winter 06/07 schedule earlier than anticipated, as this provides our passengers with the opportunity to plan ahead and grab a great deal on flights to a host of their favourite winter sun destinations.

    The launch of our new service from London Gatwick to Tenerife means Monarch is the No 1 scheduled carrier to the island next winter, operating 25 flights per week. The addition of the new Manchester to Lanzarote flight into the programme also provides further choice for passengers and means that Monarch offers more flights to the Canary Islands than any other low cost carrier.”

    Monarch operates scheduled flights to Spain, Gibraltar and Portugal from Aberdeen, Birmingham, Blackpool, London Gatwick, London Luton, Manchester and Newquay. 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.
