New routes from Leeds Bradford to Malaga and Manchester to Gran Canaria are part of Monarch Airlines’ expanded schedule for summer 2016.

The carrier has added 600,000 seats with an additional 3,200 flights over this year by raising capacity on a number of services.

Extra frequencies have been added from Birmingham airport to Glbraltar and Ibiza; Gatwick to Ibiza, Rhodes, Paphos and Verona; Leeds Bradford to Naples and Manchester to Ibiza.

The flights went on sale today (Thursday) with prices starting at £35 one-way for a limited period.

Head of network development, Marjan Schoeke, said: “Following the strategic review of our network and looking closely at where and at what time our customers want to fly we have launched an additional 600,000 seats to our summer 2016 flying programme.

“Next year’s schedule offers more flights to our most popular destinations as well as two new routes.

“This follows the launch of our summer 2016 programme last month where over 80% of the summer schedule went on sale.”
