Monarch, the leading scheduled leisure airline, has announced plans to launch a route to Hurghada for summer 2014 from Birmingham Airport. Flights will be available to book from 4th October 2013.
The brand new destination, Hurghada, will operate a twice weekly service (Tuesday and Friday) from Birmingham Airport from 2nd May 2014. Hurghada is almost unrecognizable from its past life and has grown to become the most visited tourist destination in the whole of Egypt, with more than 100 hotels and superb diving opportunities.
“We are delighted to be able to offer this further expansion of our route network,” Kevin George, Managing Director of Monarch Airlines said. “The addition of this new destination offers a wider range of quality, service and value and I am certain it will become an established favourite with our passengers.”
William Pearson, Aviation Development Director for Birmingham Airport, added “The launch of this new service to Hurghada with Monarch is great news for Midlanders, who can now fly to this popular year-round sunshine destination from their local airport. We are delighted that the airline has continued to expand its route network from Birmingham, where it is now one of our largest airlines.”
