Next summer Monarch Airlines will offer 28 flights per week from Leeds Bradford airport to a total of 8 destinations.
Services to Alicante and Naples are being introduced for the first time, while flights to both Dalaman and Faro will see an increase in frequency due to popularity.
Monarch claims a number of the routes, including Barcelona, Faro and Mahon, will benefit from more convenient flight times, making it possible for passengers to enjoy a weekend break.
“The airline has been undergoing a strategic review of all routes and bases over the past few months and as a result changes have been made to scheduled flights for summer 2015 across the network” explained Andrew Swaffield, Monarch’s CEO. "We have been listening to our customers and have put a lot of thought into refining our schedule for summer 2015 from Leeds Bradford Airport.”
Monarch is currently working towards an agreement with Boeing which will see the airline take delivery of 30 737 MAX 8 aircraft from April 2018 onwards, as well as options for a further 15 jets.
