Monarch Airlines’ parent company The Monarch Group has cancelled its order for the much anticipated Boeing Dreamliners. It had ordered six but after a number of rumours circulating recently, it has confirmed it won’t be buying them.
Monarch told the press in June that it would focus on expanding its short-haul network.
The airline’s new routes include scheduled services to Cyprus (Paphos), Turkey (Antalya, Bodrum, Dalaman), Greece (Corfu), Spain (Barcelona) and Egypt (Sharm el Sheikh).
A spokesperson confirmed: “Monarch Airlines will see further expansion into new UK bases and new routes from 2012, whilst remaining dedicated to supporting its long standing tour operator partner needs. Further consideration will be given to developing and strengthening its long-haul options in the future.”
Monarch flies to major timeshare destinations including Greece, Turkey, Spain, the Canary Islands, Gibraltar, Egypt, parts of Africa, the Caribbean and Florida, among other routes.
