Monarch extends operations into Spain

Fri 18th Feb 2011

Echoing similar moves made by last week, Monarch has added more than 100,000 seats from Luton to Spain, Portugal, Cyprus and Turkey this summer in light of "soaring demand from customers".

This comes on the back of an increasing number of holidaymakers turning away from the once popular destinations in Tunisia and Egypt due to recent political unrest in the countries.

The expansion in the scheduled programme, announced this week, will mean 108,500 more seats from Luton to Gibraltar, Malaga, Alicante and Majorca amongst other European destinations, and a further 16,000 from Gatwick through the use of bigger aircraft on flights to Alicante, Lanzarote, Majorca and Malaga – adding more than 135,000 seats on 14 routes in total - 7 of which benefit Spain.

Monarch will increase the Luton - Gibraltar flights from 4 to 11 per week, with twice-daily services on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday and an additional two flights a week from Luton to Alicante, Malaga and Majorca. That will make a daily Luton - Alicante flight, and take Luton - Malaga twice - daily on Monday and Saturday, and Luton - Mallorca to eight flights a week.

The new flights commence operation on May 27 and are available for booking now, with one-way fares from £40.99.

Monarch managing director Kevin George said: "Bookings for summer are already up 27% compared with the same time last year, so we are delighted to respond by adding seats."

Only last week the airline reported its highest-ever January passenger numbers and has already increased its April flight programme to Spain from Gatwick and Manchester.
