Monarch to increase number of flights to Spanish islands

Monarch Airlines has announced that it is increasing the frequency of its flights to the Canary and Balearic Islands as part of its 2009 summer schedule.

The decision has been taken after an early strong demand from customers who took advantage of the airline’s early booking offers.

Commenting on the increased number of flights, Liz Savage, managing director of Monarch’s scheduled services division, said: "The addition of the extra flights will mean that more people can now take advantage of Monarch’s low fares and get away for less next summer."

The carrier will be offering additional flights to Tenerife, Lanzarote and Menorca from May 1st from London, Manchester and Birmingham after transporting 2.8 million holidaymakers to European destinations last summer.

People wanting to book flights to the Spanish islands next summer had been left with limited options after the collapse of a number of airlines during the second half of this year.
Monarch announced today (December 22nd) that 85.5 percent of its flights left on time for the week between December 15th and 21st.
