Holidaymakers looking to book a beach holiday this year have more destinations to choose from after it was announced that a whole host of new routes to summer destinations are to be launched.
As of May 4, Monarch will offer flights to Paphos in Cyprus as it expands its network of routes, which already include popular European holiday destinations like Alicante, Fuerteventura, Ibiza and Majorca, as well as tourist resorts which are a little further afield like Cancun in Mexico, Goa in India, Sharm El Sheik in Egypt and Florida in America.
Departing from London Gatwick, Birmingham and Manchester, the newly announced services will give holidaymakers even more choice when planning their spring and summer getaways.
Monarch is already operating scheduled flights to Cyprus as the airline has served Larnaca, another holiday hotspot for Britons, since 2007.
Managing Director of Monarch Airlines, Tim Jeans, said: “The addition of new services to Paphos is in direct response to customer feedback and will increase the number of Monarch seats between the UK and Cyprus by 35 per cent next summer.”
Cyprus is becoming increasingly popular as a beach holiday destination for sun-loving Britons and several thousand travellers visit the island every year.
