Monarch, a leading low cost airline and holiday company, has today announced the addition of more routes to its winter schedule for 2017/18, with flights from all five of its UK bases: Birmingham, Leeds Bradford, London Gatwick, London Luton and Manchester.

On sale from today are popular ski routes including Turin, Salzburg, Innsbruck, Lyon and Grenoble.  As well as ski destinations, London Luton to Ovda, the gateway to Eilat and the Red Sea, is now on sale for its third successive winter season. More flights have also been added on popular winter sun routes to the Canaries and destinations in mainland Spain such as Malaga and Alicante.

The airline will also be extending its flying programme from Manchester to Kittila in Finnish Lapland, with scheduled flights now available in January and February.
