New flights to Turkey to be launched by Monarch

Monarch is launching new flights to Bodrum, Dalaman and Antalya in Turkey ahead of this year’s summer holiday season.

The airports serve as gateways to the Mediterranean, Turquoise and Aegean coasts, all of which have become more popular with Brits looking for value for money away from the eurozone.

Three weekly flights to Dalaman will be operated from Birmingham, while the Turquoise Coast gateway will also be served by two weekly flights from Luton and increased flights from Gatwick and Manchester.

Two weekly flights to Bodrum will be introduced from Luton, while the Aegean Coast airport will see increased traffic thanks to extra flights being laid on from Gatwick and Manchester.

Elsewhere, Monarch will launch two weekly flights to Antalya, which is close to the Mediterranean, from the north-west airport.

Liz Savage, Monarch Flights and Holidays managing director, said that its demand for flights to Turkey increased by more than 200 percent during 2009.

"Turkey offers fantastic value for money with holidaymakers and overseas property owners," she commented.

The carrier introduced new flights to the Canary Islands from Birmingham, London Gatwick and Manchester in October.
