Leading leisure airline, Monarch, received further industry recognition and scooped another trophy for its award cabinet this week, after it was voted ‘Best Charter Airline’ in the prestigious Travel Weekly Globe Awards for the second year running.
The Globes are voted for by travel agents and are highly regarded within the travel industry. Commenting on Monarch’s recent award, managing director of Monarch Airlines, Tim Jeans said, “To win this award two years running is yet another great achievement for the team at Monarch and demonstrates the strength of the brand in the highly competitive airline-market. Our core values of service and customer care mark us out as industry leaders and this award is further recognition of this.”
Monarch currently operates a fleet of 31 aircraft, serving over 100 destinations world-wide from a number of UK airports including Birmingham, London Gatwick, London Luton and Manchester. Services are split between scheduled and charter flights, with the airline carrying over 6 million passengers per year. Monarch is the oldest airline in the UK still operating under its original brand name, and will this year enter its 42nd year of flying.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
