Whoa. I did not expect this. I thought T1 was going to be mainly for Scheduled flights T2 was going to be mainly for Charter flights so Im not sure why they are apparently moving. I have also heard that EZY are moving to T1. I would like Monarch to stay in T1 as I have mostly used it and also Monarch have been there for years.

Monarch to t2

All down to Man Airport.They spent a lot of money improving T1 shopping area and no one is buying.Shopkeepers complaining of high rents and low sales.Airport wants big airlines that now use T2 to move to T1 so their high spending pax will use the expensive shops.Monarch have cut a deal with airport as well.Dont know the details but has to do with lower fees due extra taxi time from stands to R/way

Monarch have a fair number of based aircraft at MAN on multiple rotations per day, not something anyone over at T2 currently has, I don't see the logic.
T2 stands mainly empty for periods each day as well.

"Please present your boarding card/flight number when making purchases"

It's data collection on behalf of the airport.

It's not about the number of aircraft your airline has based there, it's about how much your passengers spend the shops of Manchester International Shopping Centre.

If your passengers aren't spending, they will get in another airline whose passengers are.

Oh dear......I've gone through this time and time again on various boards. From experience, the amount pax spend in the airport is often nothing to do with the airline and more to do with the destination. Easyjet operates probably the most varied network of any airline out of MAN. City routes, predominantly VFR/migrant routes, ski routes, expat sun/villa routes, and routes that are actually damn right charter in nature. Just by seeing who comes onboard with what purchases and the amount spent onboard usually tells me who spends and who don't. And the big spenders are quite often the ones who everyone here tends to dismiss.

Unlike TOM and TCX who tend to stagger their departures through out the day, MON tend to dispatch their flights at roughly the same time - first wave between 7-8am-ish and and second wave at 2-3pm-ish ( a headache for Swissport manpower planning ! ) and during those times, T2 can be quite busy.

Is it not more of a revision of the current livery rather than a new one? Billboard titles and a solid colour ''spotted M'' on the tail rather than the yellow diamond as now?

I guess we'll see soon enough then anyway

MKY661,

BT has been working mostly out of LTN and BHX recently, although it has done a couple of flights out of MAN.

Aircraft are being painted as they are brought in for scheduled maintenance. There isn't too much to expect of the new paint job really. They just wanted to make the aircraft more of a billboard for the company.

Monarch's first flight between Aalborg and Fort Myers has taken place with a cannon salute for the inaugural service on the A330. Danish tour operator Comefly is reported to be testing the waters with the service for the next four weeks, but according to the following article "CEO Steen Normann said he's working on an agreement with Monarch Airlines to provide service between Fort Myers and Denmark from Dec. 19 through Easter 2012."
