Monarch, the UK’s leading scheduled airline to leisure destinations, has announced a new route from Leeds Bradford Airport to Gran Canaria for winter 2014/15.
The route will begin on November 8, 2014 operating on a Monday and a Saturday.
Flights to Barcelona will also be added to the winter schedule. The flights to the Catalan capital will depart on a Monday and a Friday, starting on February 13, 2015.
Gran Canaria is the third Canary Island that Monarch flies to from Leeds Bradford. This new winter addition accompanies Lanzarote and Tenerife and is a popular destination for winter sun.
Ever-popular Barcelona is rich in culture and tradition; perfect for a city break. And with its new winter flights, Leeds Bradford can now also be a gateway to the slopes: with the resorts of Soldeu and Arinsal in Andorra just three hours away, travellers can plan the perfect winter vacation.
Tony Hallwood, Aviation Development & Marketing Director at Leeds Bradford Airport, said: "We welcome the introduction of two new winter 14/15 routes to complement Monarch’s existing schedule at Leeds Bradford. With the addition of twice weekly services to both Gran Canaria and Barcelona, Monarch is now offering six routes from Yorkshire’s gateway airport this winter."
