Monarch enters Madeira market with two UK routes
Monarch’s London Gatwick to Madeira
- Monarch launched new services connecting two UK destinations and the Atlantic island of Madeira (FNC) on 15 October. Twice-weekly flights are now offered from Birmingham (BHX), while London Gatwick (LGW) enjoys thrice-weekly frequencies to the Portuguese island. All flights are operated using the airline’s fleet of A320s. Thomson Airways provides competition on both routes, which it serves each with weekly frequencies. In addition, TAP Portugal and easyJet both serve the 2,500-kilometre route from London Gatwick to Madeira with daily and five weekly frequencies respectively.
