LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 6, 2012) - Leading scheduled leisure airline, Monarch, has today announced the reintroduction of their flight to Almeria in southern Spain for summer 2013 from Manchester.
Expanding on its network of scheduled destinations from Manchester, the route offers customers another choice of summer sun destination. Flights to Almeria will operate twice a week starting on 4 May 2013 and went on sale on Friday 16 November 2012.
Managing Director of Monarch Airlines, Kevin George, commented: "We are delighted to be resuming the Almeria route for our summer 2013 flights programme from Manchester Airport. Since we last operated the route in 2011 the popularity of our Birmingham/Almeria flight has grown considerably and therefore we thought it timely to bring the route back to Manchester.
"Our social media followers will be particularly pleased by the resumption of the flight as it has been the topic of discussion and debate for some time on both Facebook and Twitter and we are always very pleased to be able to respond positively to customer feedback. The addition of Almeria for summer 2013 expands further our extensive offering from Manchester and we are sure that it will be a popular choice for our customers."
Ken O'Toole, Chief Commercial Officer for MAG (Manchester Airports Group), said: "Monarch Airlines is a major carrier here and the re-instatement of the Almeria route will be a welcome addition to the summer 2013 schedule from Manchester. Spain remains a popular destination for leisure travellers using our airport and Monarch's continued growth is something we will continue to support in the year ahead."
