Whether you need a short, action-packed city break or a warm, blissed-out holiday, the destinations around the Mediterranean are hard to beat. That’s why we’re so excited to announce the launch of 14 new routes across Italy, Croatia and Greece for summer 2012.

Blessed with sun-drenched beaches, dynamic cities, delicious cuisine and fascinating culture, there is a destination to suit everyone in the Med. Check our website for from prices. You can now book:

New flights from Manchester to Dubrovnik, Milan, Venice and Verona

The new routes are part of strategy to expand our network, first revealed in June this year, which involves focusing on our scheduled services and expanding to new leisure destinations across Europe. There will also be two additional Airbus A320 aircraft added into the fleet from March 2012, which will see it grow from 30 to around 40 aircraft in total.

Managing Director Kevin George, pictured above, appeared on ITV Central Tonight and BBC Midlands Today among many other media, to explain particularly exciting news for our Birmingham base. We’ll be bringing 2 new aircraft to the airport, creating 200 new jobs and carrying 1.2 million passengers to 20 leisure destinations in the next year.

Commenting on the expansion plans, Kevin said: “The strategy for Monarch Airlines is now firmly focused on its scheduled operations and we are delighted to be adding these new routes to our already extensive network of leisure destinations across Europe.

“Adding Italy to our network will further reinforce our position as the leading leisure focused airline serving the Mediterranean and the Canaries. We are committed to providing high levels of care and service for our customers and are constantly striving for innovative ways of providing great value benefits for them at year-round low fares. The introduction of our discounted ‘Happy Hour’ cheap flights and our fight against unjust debit and credit card fees are examples of ways in which we look after our customers and we are excited about introducing these initiatives across our expanding network.”

Flights on all our new routes are on sale from today via www.monarch.co.uk and available to book until October 2012.
