With Monarch it’s all about the ser­vice. Monarch has great prices, great fre­quen­cies and flight times, an ex­cel­lent choice of Euro­pean des­ti­na­tions and the very best in cus­tomer ser­vice – there are many rea­sons to book your flights and hol­i­days with us.

With Monarch you can ex­pect a warm wel­come and from the minute you step on board your hol­i­day is off to a fly­ing start. And it gets bet­ter – we don’t charge you for book­ing on credit card, there’s no fees at all, and we will get you to and from your cho­sen hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion on time - we were de­lighted to have been re­cently recog­nised as “The world’s most punc­tual low cost car­rier 2016” in OAG’s Punc­tu­al­ity League 2016.

If you’re hol­i­day­ing with us, the unique ser­vice con­tin­ues with our Monarch Concierge Ser­vice. It’s there for you from the mo­ment you book - this unique of­fer­ing is a com­pletely free ser­vice that al­lows us to share our ex­pert knowl­edge of re­sorts to help you plan your trip and an­swer any ques­tions you have about your cho­sen des­ti­na­tion. From spe­cial re­quests like a par­tic­u­lar hotel room, book­ing a table at your favourite restau­rant, to let­ting you know where the best beaches are and even the best place to buy gro­ceries – the Hol­i­day Concierge team is on hand to help.

If you’re cel­e­brat­ing a spe­cial oc­ca­sion and would like ad­vice and as­sis­tance with plan­ning a sur­prise then the Concierge team can help you, or per­haps you’d like some point­ers on mem­o­rable sun­set walks or even where the best clubs are: just ask our Hol­i­day Concierge Team. We want you to get the most out of your time away and recog­nise that it’s often the small de­tails that can re­ally make a dif­fer­ence.

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.

So, that’s Monarch in a nut­shell - if you reg­u­larly fly or hol­i­day with us, thank you – and if you don’t, how many more rea­sons do you need to try us?

Book your next flight or hol­i­day now at – we look for­ward to meet­ing you very soon!
