Monarch adds new route to Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt from third UK airport
- Monarch Airlines launched flights on the 4,000-kilometre winter sun route from Birmingham (BHX) in the UK to Sahrm el-Sheikh (SSH), a popular year-round sea, sand and sun destination in Egypt, which it already serves four times a week from Manchester and with thrice-weekly flights from London Gatwick. Weekly A321-operated flights are offered on the new route, which launched on 18 October. Competition on the route comes from two other leisure airlines, Thomson Airways and Thomas Cook, which already operate respectively three and one flight a week.
