Erm, the Flybe announcement was about regional UK routes and flights to European hubs (CDG, AMS), which is what you'd expect them to do, not the "bucket and spade" routes, which is where Monarch will fit.

Monarch has said on the Facebook page they are releasing new destinations on Tuesday.
Does anyone have any ideas? Are they to be routes from current bases or from new bases?

Malaga, Alicante, Palma and Faro are the only ones announced from EMA so far. You'd imagine Tuesday will be the full list.

Id expect TFS to be one as well. TFS operates from all 4 current bases and it is extremely popular.

Does anyone else find it strange that Monarch would announce a new base but not put the routes on sale till the next week?

Are they not losing vital momentum ahead of short sale period for this summer?

Just asking - Its only that I cant remember an airline doing a base annoucnement this way!?

Thoughts anyone?

They jumped in VERY quickly to mark their territory.
Detailed planning will take a few days at least - deciding timings, start dates, modifying the website, increasing or redeploying fleet, crewing, supplier negotiations, etc.
I think if they get a full plan ready to reveal next Tuesday, they will have worked very quickly.

Just looked at the Cosmos flights website, Looks like that they have added a few new routes there e.g Fuchal, Munich and freidrichshafen?

And I saw a new Route: Birmingham to Genoble


Note: Most of them start in the Winter even Late December!

No East midlands Flights on there yet...

In the meantime Jet2, who are already at East Midlands, have announced 8 new routes! Not sure that Monarch have got it right!

Well as most of Jet2s routes are for S13... I believe they haven't got it wrong launching this year! Jet2 cannot fill the market this year, Monarch can!
