Monarch reveals full winter schedule

Low-cost airline Monarch has announced details of its winter 2008/09 flight schedule.

Flights are on sale now and include new and expanded services from London Luton, Gatwick, Manchester and Birmingham.

The new season will be the first winter outing for flights to the Cypriot holiday destination of Larnaca from Gatwick and Manchester. Three flights a week will run from both UK airports to the Cypriot city.

Monarch’s recently renewed Manchester to Gibraltar service will also feature on the winter schedule for the first time.

In addition, the airline has doubled the number of flights to Tenerife and Lanzarote from Gatwick and passengers looking for some winter sun will be able to fly to the Canary Islands from London Luton, Birmingham and Manchester.

Liz Savage, managing director of scheduled services at Monarch, said: "We are seeing real demand for the Canaries this year and have responded with increased services from all our UK airports, as well as continuing to strengthen our position on our core routes.

In addition, flights to Larnaca continue to be hugely popular and our successful routes from London Luton, which launched last year, and our new services from London Gatwick and Manchester, which launched earlier this year and will operate their first winter services this year, will all offer up to three flights per week from each airport."
