Commenting on the launch of the schedule, Liz Savage, managing director of Monarch’s scheduled services, said, "We are delighted to have our Winter 2008/09 schedule on sale ahead of many of our major competitors from London Gatwick Airport.

"Our customers continue to prefer our low fare, more care offer and having more than doubled our services to Tenerife and Lanzarote, coupled with additional services to Murcia, the first Winter operation of our popular Gatwick-Larnaca route, and by maintaining our strong position on our core routes, we are ideally positioned to meet the needs of our passengers."

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 £6 per one-way flight to avoid the last minute free-for-all experienced on some other airlines, or for only £15, 48 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 7 days and 4.5 hours prior to departure.
