Commenting on the new and additional flights this summer, Managing Director of Monarch Airlines, Kevin George said, "Customer response to the 135,000 additional seats that were added into Monarch's summer flying schedule last month has been fantastic and we have continued to see demand for our services grow. It's great therefore that we have been able to respond to this demand further by boosting our Eastern Med programme with the introduction of new flights to Corfu and Bodrum, as well as strengthen schedules on a number of our core sunshine routes. Particularly pleasing is the addition of extra flights to Paphos from Gatwick and Manchester, which are not scheduled to start operating until May, but are already selling strongly."
