Monarch have moved quickly this evening/Thursday to
replace the services and routes that will be lost following
today's announcement that bmibaby is to cease operations
in September 2012
Monarch are understood to be planning to base a further
two aircraft at Birmingham from July 2012 - bringing
their locally based fleet upto 8 aircraft - adding a new
route to Barcelona and additional flights to Alicante,
Faro, Malaga, Palma and Rome, all destinations
currently served by bmibaby
A UK base for Monarch since 2005, the airline is
already one of Birmingham Airport’s leading scheduled
airlines, flying over 875,000 passengers every year
to over twenty destinations across Europe
Commenting on the expansion of services from
Birmingham Airport, Managing Director of Monarch
Airlines, Kevin George said, "In light of recent industry
changes, opportunities have opened up in the market.
It has become clear that the Midlands will be under
served as a region in the future, and that there is a
lack of quality carriers to serve customers travelling
from the area"
