Monarch Airlines launches six new destinations from Leeds/Bradford; adds flights from Manchester to Almeria

Monarch Airlines’ arrival in Menorca from Leeds/Bradford was welcomed with a sweet 3D representation of the carrier’s aircraft. Leading the celebration was the airport’s Director, Thomas Melgar (pictured second left).

  • Monarch Airlines expanded its seasonal summer offering from two northern English airports last week. Leeds/Bradford (LBA) and Manchester (MAN) saw the launch of a combined number of seven routes with most of them being launched at the former facility. All flights are operated using A320s except for the Manchester to Almería (LEI) service, for which the slightly larger A321 is deployed. Only one route is void of any competition.
