Leading scheduled leisure airline, Monarch, has announced that it is to increase the frequency of its Barcelona service from Birmingham airport from four times a week to daily, from 1 May 2013.
The Barcelona route has been such a popular choice with passengers from Birmingham since its introduction in July 2012 that Monarch has decided to increase the frequency to give their customers even greater seat flexibility.
The capital of Catalonia is the ideal destination for city breaks as well as longer holidays. Barcelona offers visitors art, culture, beauty, fabulous architecture and traditional Catalonian cuisine. With all year round music festivals from jazz to Flamenco and shopping, beaches and museums in abundance, there is a host of activities and interests to suit every traveller.
Commenting on the extension of the service, Kevin George, Monarch Airlines’ Managing Director, said: “We are really pleased to be increasing the frequency of this popular route from Birmingham airport. It offers customers in the West Midlands even greater flexibility on the length of their stay in Barcelona combined with the value and excellent customer service that they can expect from Monarch.”
WilIiam Pearson, Aviation Development Director at Birmingham Airport, said: “Increasing the frequency of the Barcelona flight is great news as it will open up a greater choice for those wanting to reach this fantastic destination, which combines both beach and city. We are really pleased that Monarch has recognised the need for daily services from Birmingham.”
