Monarch, which calls itself the leading scheduled leisure airline, has announced an expansion of its route network for summer 2014. A number of new destinations will operate for the first time, while some existing points will be served from more airports.
Gatwick to Nice is added to the established Birmingham route.
Also new is Enfidha (Tunisia), located midway between Tunis and Monastir, which will operate twice a week (Wednesday and Sunday) from both Gatwick and Manchester airports.
Agadir, which enjoys a year round warm climate, becomes Monarch Airline’s first Moroccan destination with once again twice weekly flights from Manchester (Tuesday and Saturday) and Gatwick (Tuesday and Friday).
Monarch Airlines will operate a twice weekly service to Hurghada, well south of Cairo on the Red Sea (Tuesday and Friday) from Birmingham, Gatwick and Manchester airports from 2 May 2014. Naples gains a twice weekly service from Gatwick and Luton at the same time.
The announcements were made in the name of Monarch Chief Executive Kevin George who leaves the airline at the end of the year to take up a similar position with Red Funnel Lines. www.monarch.co.uk
