So, where to go with Monarch? Summer sun, winter sun, and city breaks – or a flight to your favourite ski resort. There are more than 40 destinations to choose from across our network – many of them favourite LGBT holiday spots. We operate from five bases across the UK London Gatwick, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds-Bradford, and Luton offering six million sector seats per year across Europe.
Our city break programme is extensive with hotspots including Lisbon, Barcelona, Rome and Tel Aviv – renowned for their great nightlife,
entertainment and Pride festivals. New for this year, we’re jetting off to some brilliant destinations - the beautiful city of Porto, which is increasing in popularity and renowned for its architecture, and Stockholm and Zagreb, two fascinating capital cities, steeped in culture, history and great cuisine.
If it summer sun you’re after then there’s so much to choose from – flights, all-inclusive packages in hand-picked 3-5 star hotels, or selfcatering, there’s a Monarch holiday for you. The Canaries remain popular for a number of reasons: year-round sunshine, fantastic hospitality and easy access from the UK – and the Yumbo Centre! Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Tenerife, La Palma and Fuerteventura all offer brilliant experiences – great beaches, a picturesque natural environment, a laid-back way of life with the added bonus of a great night life for those who want it. Similarly, the Balearic Islands, particularly Ibiza and Majorca, together with mainland Spain offer sun, scenery, great cuisine and an abundance of nightlife! Or why not try something new for 2017, you can jet off to Valencia or Split from Birmingham. Croatia is increasing in popularity all the time and we now have three destinations to choose from – Dubrovnik, Split and Zagreb.
It’s an exciting time for Monarch and, looking forward, 2018 will see our 50th anniversary and the arrival of the first of our new Boeing737 Max-8 aircraft. Our new fleet will offer a better customer experience, has a 40% smaller community noise footprint than other single-aisle aircraft and will be exceptionally fuel efficient.
