Monarch launches new flights to Barcelona
Monarch, the scheduled leisure airline, has today launched new scheduled flights to Spain’s most cosmopolitan city, Barcelona.
The flights, which start from £36 one way including all taxes and charges (£57 return), are available to book from today via: monarch.co.uk
Monarch’s new scheduled flights between Gatwick and Barcelona will operate daily from 21 October 2011, increasing to 11 flights per week from 30 October 2011 and brings the total number of scheduled destinations served by the airline from Gatwick to 13.
Commenting on the launch of this new route, Managing Director of Monarch Airlines, Kevin George said, “Barcelona is one of the UK’s most popular short break destinations and we are delighted to be adding this to our route network from Gatwick in addition to our existing flights from Manchester.
“Barcelona attracts a broad mix of visitors for business, city breaks and leisure for beach goers. During the winter season it is a fantastic gateway to the ski slopes of the Pyrenees. All of these customers will appreciate the convenience and flexibility of up to 11 flights per week in addition to Monarch’s fantastic value fares and innovative ‘build your own class’ service, which offers customers the ability to tailor their flight package to their exact requirements including extra legroom seating and pre-ordered meals.”
Monarch’s scheduled flights are available to book until October 2012. Customers now booking flights will also benefit from zero debit card charge fees and a fixed fee for all credit card bookings, regardless of the transaction value or number of people travelling.
