Monarch’s last Airbus A300

Bookings are being taken by Monarch Airlines for the very last commercial flight service on its long serving Airbus A300.  The type has been with the airline since 1990, and has carried more than 20m passengers.

The final A300 airframe in the fleet, G-OJMR, will be retiring on Sunday 13 April 2014.  Monarch’s A300s are the final last passenger-carrying examples in service with a European airline.  Air France was the first A300 customer in 1974 and 561 were built.

To celebrate the life of this workhorse of the airline industry, Monarch will be giving enthusiasts one last chance of flying on this great airliner.  ZB300 will depart Gatwick Airport’s South Terminal at 14:40, for a leisurely hop to Birmingham International Airport, arriving at 15:40. 

Bookings via the Monarch web site.

The 347 seats will be priced at £74 per person, inclusive of airport taxes and charges. 

Window Seats:  £25 per person

Aisle Seats in window row:  £15 per person

Middle Seats in window row:  £11 per person

Aisle Seats in middle row:  £5 per person

Reserved middle seats in middle row:  £1 per person

The flight will operate as a hand luggage only flight and normal hand luggage restrictions will apply.  Return transport arrangements to Gatwick are to be confirmed. www.monarch.co.uk
