Monarch at Airlines UK

The future shape of Monarch Airlines is up for scrutiny at the Airlines UK annual lecture on 4 October when the carrier’s CEO, Andrew Swaffield, is guest speaker. The event is from 16:00-18:00 at the head office of Deloitte in New Street Square, London.

Swaffield’s appearance comes as the airline undertakes a comprehensive review of operations which has led to speculation the company may venture into the long-haul market as it determines its optimal future shape, size and strategy.

Confirming the restructure plan, a spokesman said: "We are having regular discussions on a number of options with potential strategic partners and we will announce any material developments, if and when they happen."

Swaffield joined Monarch in April 2014 from Avios Group Ltd, where he was managing director for seven years. He has more than 25 years of management experience in travel, aviation and the airline loyalty field.

The 2017 lecture is the third organised by Airlines UK following the address by British Airways CEO Alex Cruz last year and Carolyn McCall of easyJet in 2015. Swaffield is expected to speak for 20-25min, followed by a 30min Q&A session.
