Some people call themselves aviation enthusiasts… others are plane spotters… many are ‘avgeeks’… and here at Monarch, we love you all. If you share our passion for all things related to commercial aircraft, airline operations, aircraft engineering or even airports, we’re inviting you to join us for the day trip of a lifetime.
On Friday 14 October, we’ll be running our first “Enthusiast’s Day”, where we’re offering unprecedented access to Monarch behind-the-scenes. The action-packed day presents a rare opportunity to meet some of the Monarch staff responsible for organising our fleet, keeping our aircraft in top condition and looking after you onboard.
The day starts early with a 6.15 meeting at Monarch HQ in Luton, followed by a tour of the Integrated Operations Centre. Here you’ll have the chance to see the operations team in action just before the start of a busy day’s flying and learn what goes on as 30 aircraft are prepared for their morning departures.
Next we’ll take a return flight to Gibraltar on flight ZB068, boarding an Airbus A320-200, where you can enjoy the comforts of our in-flight cabin service and learn why our cabin crew have the reputation for being the most friendly and professional in the business.
On arrival in Gibraltar we are privileged to be able to visit Air Traffic Control, followed by free time to enjoy the island or the Spanish city of La Linea, at your leisure. You may like to take the opportunity to walk across the runway in Gibraltar via the public road, or view aircraft movements from the top of the Rock (NB: tour/transport not included in this trip).
Returning to Luton Airport in the evening, we’ll tour the engineering hangar where you’ll have the chance to see aircraft being worked on by our expert technicians at close proximity.
This exciting itinerary is great value at just £119 per person but if you’d like one of the 15 people to take part in this special day, you’ll need to hurry – places are filling fast! Full details can be found in the “Offers” section of our website, or visit our website to learn how to reserve your place now.
