3 September 2009
Its official, award winning low fares airline Monarch is the number one airline to Spain from Manchester with more flights and passengers carried each week than any other scheduled airline from the North West airport.
Throughout this summer season Monarch is operating 190 flights a week from Manchester to 11 destinations throughout Mainland Spain, the Balearic and the Canary Islands, which equates to over 867,000 seats. Not content with this however, the airline is further enhancing its position as number one by strengthening its network to the Canary Islands this October with the launch of new year-round scheduled services to Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura.
Commenting on the achievement, managing director of Monarch flights and holidays, Liz Savage said, “We operate almost double the amount of flights per week from Manchester than our nearest competitor, giving customers the best choice of flight times and destinations to Spain. Whilst competitors withdraw their services we are demonstrating our commitment to Manchester with the launch of new routes to the Canaries. It is clear to us that when customers have a choice they prefer to fly with Monarch and enjoy our low fares and high quality service.”
