LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 11, 2012) - UK holidaymakers looking for a fix of winter sun this season can now benefit from Monarch Airlines' recent introduction of additional flights to Lanzarote. The leading airline has brought customers a range of new routes servicing Spain and the Canary Islands, including two weekly flights from East Midlands Airport to Lanzarote Arrecife Airport, launched on the 28th of October.
Speaking earlier this year, Managing Director of Monarch Airlines Kevin George said: "We have been delighted by the response to the announcement that we will be opening a new base and new flights from East Midlands Airport this summer.
Demand for flights has already been strong and it is great that hot on the heels of the launch, we are able to expand our network and add new routes to Tenerife, Lanzarote and Ibiza."
These new cheap flights will offer holidaymakers even more ways to jet off for a week or two of sunshine away from the cold, wet weather back home this winter, bringing a new level of convenience to customers travelling from the Midlands.
Lanzarote, with its high temperatures, low rainfall and perpetual sunshine all year round, is a firm favourite among Brits looking for a sun-kissed break. With top quality hotels offering the finest hospitality, entertainment and cuisine, you can really let your hair down and enjoy some much-needed rest and relaxation.
There is also vibrant nightlife on offer, particularly in Puerto del Carmen, which is packed with lively music venues and bars to keep you dancing from dusk till dawn. Or, for a more refined evening, pay a visit to Playa Blanca, where there's a classy collection of sophisticated cocktail bars and entertainment for the post-restaurant crowd.
If you're looking for an active outdoor experience, why not explore the island's stunning lunar landscape? The volcanic geology has created wide open vistas of spectacular scenery and natural wonders, including the world's longest volcanic tunnel - the Atlántida Tunnel, over 7km in length.
With a bustling nightlife, beautiful beaches, a unique landscape and plenty of opportunities to enjoy water sports and other outdoor activities, Lanzarote has something to offer for every holidaymaker.
Lanzarote flights from Monarch are now available from just £49 per person, departing from Manchester, Birmingham, London Gatwick, London Luton, East Midlands and Leeds/Bradford airports.
