Very likely to be an A321.

Good to see MON expanding however where are the extra a/c coming from? are they cutting capacity elsewhere?

Monarch announce a new route from Leeds-Grenoble, and within half an hour Jet2 launch a new route from Leeds-Grenoble. If that isn't saying off Leeds is well and truly ours, then I don't know what is!

Munich - first choice for skiers?

Surprised to see Munich being described as a great ski gateway - seems an odd choice for so many new services and surely very congested at peak times for slots??

A 2 hour coach from Munich will take you to a nice ski resort, very popular with schools.

How is a whole based aircraft going to be sustainable at EMA with only 4 routes at the current time? I heard more were to be announced today but seems not?

I was kind of expecting some winter ski flights from East Mids. Have to say two routes from Leeds is a bit of a surprise.
Monarch have tried the smaller airports before, notably Blackpool & Newquay, neither lasted very long.

A shame Monarch could not have tried a Grenoble / Innsbruck route on a W pattern to Bournemouth for the winter . Always been very popular with skiers and the like who now have to make there way to LGW or BRS .

Shame MON do not look at CWL, there is a massive void to fill since Baby's departure, although VY have cut a little of the slack. Still hugely popular destinations like Murcia, Faro, etc that need extra capacity !

All depends on the frequency of the routes

Hardly a "massive void" to be filled from CWL. I'm sure that MON get approached by most UK airports in some form or another and have considered that they would lose a bucket load of cash if they operated from there.

It's not as if BRS is a million miles away and there's plenty of service from there.

Good news about the new routes but when are the ones from EMA announced and where are these extra aircraft going to come from?

By the way just posted the new routes on the flightradar24 forum so all new routes should be working on flightradar24.com when they start:

Well TartinTon, i can assure you that MON have looked at CWL many-a-time, which is why they decided to operate the SFB weekly charters from there. So, they also looked into scheduled ops and an expansion of charter ops earlier this year, to destinations that would fill the "Massive Void".

AirGuru.

With ITX flights, it is the tour operator(s) that "decides" to operate a series of flights, and then contracts an airline to operate the flights.

..and the "weekly" SFB charters rapidly became fortnightly.....I wouldn't hold your breath for a CWL based unit any time soon...unless a tour operator asked them to base it there.
