Monarch Airlines adds two destinations from Birmingham; launches Ibiza from East Midlands

Birmingham Airport and Monarch Airlines celebrated the launch of two new routes with “golden tickets” and a glass of bubbly for lucky passengers. The rich wine-making traditions of both Bordeaux and Split served as inspiration for the inaugural cake. Kevin George, Monarch Airlines’ MD, said, “We are delighted to be celebrating the start of these new routes from Birmingham Airport giving our customers in the Midlands an even greater range of summer sun destinations and bringing the total number of Monarch destinations for 2013 from Birmingham Airport to 28.”

Tasting the inaugural cake prepared in Bordeaux were Russell Ison, Monarch Group’s Head of Group PR and Communications; James Massey, the airline’s Head of Marketing; and Pascal Personne, Bordeaux Airport’s Director.

  • Monarch Airlines further grew its offering from Birmingham (BHX) last week with the launch of competition-free services to Bordeaux (BOD) and Split (SPU). In addition, on 23 May, the carrier inaugurated flights on its second Balearic route from East Midlands (EMA), where it already offers a daily schedule to Palma de Mallorca (and a further four destinations, as detailed in this week’s airport analysis of East Midlands).
