Monarch Airlines announces expansion of route network

Monarch, the leading scheduled leisure airline, has announced an expansion of its route network for summer 2014.

A number of new destinations will operate for the first time, while some existing destinations will be served from more airports.

The established Birmingham to Nice route will be complemented by a five-times-a-week service to the French Riviera from London Gatwick Airport.

A brand new destination, Enfidha in Tunisia, located midway between Tunis and Monastir, will operate twice a week from both Manchester and London Gatwick airports.

Agadir, which enjoys a year round warm climate, becomes Monarch Airline’s first Moroccan destination.

Monarch Airlines will operate a twice weekly service to Hurghada from Birmingham, London Gatwick and Manchester airports from May 2nd 2014.

Hurghada is almost unrecognisable from its past life and has grown to become the most visited tourist destination in Egypt, with more than 100 hotels and superb diving opportunities.

The historic sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum will be accessible from Naples, located south of Rome.

Naples also serves the beautiful Italian resorts of Sorrento and the Isle of Capri.

Naples flights will be twice weekly from both Manchester and London Luton airports.

“We are delighted to be able to offer this further expansion of our route network,” explained Kevin George, managing director, Monarch Airlines.

“These new destinations offer a wider range of quality, service and value and I am certain they will become established favourites with our passengers.”
