Monarch launches new routes from Birmingham in competition with bmibaby
- Monarch, the British leisure airline, launched two Mediterranean routes out of Birmingham (BHX) with its A320 aircraft in the last week; both in competition with bmibaby that is set to shut down at the beginning of September. On 20 July, Monarch launched daily flights to Nice (NCE) on the French Riviera and the following day, four weekly flights were launched to Spain’s second-largest city Barcelona (BCN). bmibaby operates both routes with the same frequencies.
