Monarch flights

Low-fare airline Monarch has announced new year-round services to Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands.

From October this year, additional flights will operate from Birmingham, London Gatwick, London Luton and Manchester airports.

Monarch will fly to Gran Canaria from Birmingham once a week and up to twice a week from London Gatwick and Manchester from October 19.

From October 21, there will be one flight a week to Fuerteventura from Birmingham, London Gatwick and London Luton and up to two flights a week from Manchester.

Managing director of Monarch flights and holidays, Liz Savage said: “We are delighted to be expanding our network to the Canary Islands with the launch of scheduled flights to Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura in addition to our existing routes to Tenerife and Lanzarote. We are seeing huge demand for our mid-haul destinations – in June we carried 59% more customers to Lanzarote and 16% more customers to Tenerife compared to June 2008 and the addition of Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura means even more people can take advantage of our low fares and award-winning onboard service to these popular sunshine islands this winter.

“The onboard service offered on Monarch’s scheduled flights, which includes extra legroom seating, a great range of tasty hot and cold food and selected inflight entertainment is over and above the levels provided by most low fare airlines and is perfectly suited for longer flight sectors such as the Canary Islands.”

Flights are on sale now at www.monarch.co.uk for travel until 27 March 2010, with fares including taxes starting from just £52.99 one way (£90.99 return).

Monarch will have almost 500,000 seats to the Canary Islands available during the winter season, 32% more than last year.
