Monarch launches new routes from Birmingham

Low-cost airline will be flying to quartet of popular European destinations this summer

Low-cost airline and holiday company Monarch is to launch four new routes this summer from Birmingham Airport.

Flights to Split in Croatia, Valencia in Spain, Naples in Italy and Rhodes in Greece are now available and Monarch will be the only airline flying to both Split and Valencia from Birmingham.

All of the new flights launch in June and will be twice weekly, except for Rhodes which will be once a week.

As well as these four new routes, Monarch will be launching flights to Stockholm as a new destination in April following last year's announcement about the route.

Monarch will be the only airline flying directly to the Swedish capital.

Head of network development Marjan Schoeke said: "We are delighted to be announcing four new routes to the network from Birmingham Airport for this summer.

"With the introduction of these routes, we now have 30 destinations on offer to customers flying from Birmingham Airport this summer.

"We continually monitor our route network and feel that these destinations will be a popular choice with our customers who fly from Birmingham and are looking for sun this summer."

David Winstanley, chief operating officer at Birmingham Airport, added: "It is fabulous news that Monarch will be adding these new routes for summer 2017 offering more choice of destinations from Birmingham Airport.

"Both Split and Valencia are unserved from the airport so passengers will have the chance to visit these beautiful cities."
