Monarch, a leading UK independent airline group, today announced the addition of Porto to their network for summer 2017 from Birmingham Airport.
The new Portuguese route joins the Swedish capital of Stockholm as new destinations for the summer programme.
Flights to Porto from Birmingham start on 28 April 2017 and will operate three times a week on a Tuesday, Friday and Sunday. Hundreds of seats on board are on sale from £32 one-way inclusive of taxes and charges.
The city of Porto is a popular destination and will be the fourth Portuguese destination on the Monarch network, alongside Lisbon, which was introduced last summer, Faro and Funchal in Madeira. Renowned for its port wine and architecture, the coastal city of Porto sits in the northwest of the country.
Marjan Schoeke, Monarch’s Head of Network Development, comments: “We are delighted to be announcing Porto as our latest addition to the network from Birmingham Airport. This new route joins Stockholm as an exciting new destination for our customers to visit in summer 2017.
“The announcement of flights to Porto from Birmingham follow on from a successful launch of the route from other bases back in September. It’s the ideal destination for those looking to book the perfect city break.”
Paul Kehoe, Chief Executive Officer at Birmingham Airport, said: “It is excellent news to see Monarch introducing another popular destination to their choice of routes from Birmingham Airport.
“Porto is a vibrant city with a fascinating history, interesting tourist attractions and great nightlife and so it will appeal to a wide range of our passengers and we are sure it will be a popular summer route.”
