“The airline has been undergoing a strategic review of all routes and bases over the past few months and as a result changes have been made to scheduled flights for summer 2015 across the network. We have been listening to our customers and have put a lot of thought into refining our schedule for summer 2015 from Leeds Bradford Airport. We believe that the improvements to our flying programme from our most northern base will appeal to our loyal travellers, as well as attracting new customers to Monarch to experience the warmth of service and personal touch that we are bringing back to the European airline industry.”
John Parkin, Chief Executive of Leeds Bradford Airport said:
“We welcome the introduction of two new summer destinations by Monarch providing increased flight choice for travellers across the Leeds City region and Yorkshire. With improved flight timings and the excellent customer service which Monarch offers, passengers can be assured of a warm welcome next summer when they fly from their local airport – Leeds Bradford.”
