Monarch announces new routes to Naples, Rhodes, Split and Valencia from Birmingham Airport

Monarch, the leading low cost airline and holiday company, has announced four
new routes for summer 2017 from Birmingham Airport with new flights to Naples
in Italy, Rhodes in Greece, Split in Croatia and Valencia in Spain

Split and Valencia are new destinations added to the Monarch network for summer
2017. Flights to both destinations will only be operated out of Birmingham Airport
for the summer season. Naples and Rhodes are already on the Monarch network
but new to Birmingham Airport for summer 2017

As well as these four new routes, Monarch will be launching new flights to Stockholm
as a new destination from Birmingham. The new flights were announced back in 2016
and the first flight is on Friday 28 April 2017 where Monarch will be the only airline
flying directly to the Swedish capital from Birmingham Airport

Marjan Schoeke, Monarch's Head of Network Development, comments: "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. Monarch has more
destinations to choose from than any other airline when flying out of Birmingham. 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, said: "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, in Croatia and Valencia, in Spain are
unserved from the Airport so passengers will have the chance to visit these beautiful cities. 
While the routes to Naples and Rhodes offers extra capacity to passengers travelling from
their local airport.  Monarch has been a partner airline for many years and provides an
excellent service for both leisure and business passengers"

As well as adding new routes for summer 2017 and being the only airline to fly direct to
Split and Valencia, Monarch is also the only airline to fly directly to seven other destinations
from Birmingham Airport - Lisbon, Nice, Stockholm, Preveza, Gibraltar, Venice and Rome

Rhodes - weekly on Wednesday from 21 June 2017
