The increase has been aided by the recent launch of new routes from Gatwick and Manchester to Larnaca (Cyprus) and from Gatwick to Menorca.

Notes to editors:

Monarch operates scheduled flights to Spain, Gibraltar, Portugal and Cyprus from Birmingham, London Gatwick, London Luton and Manchester airports and was named as Leisure Airline of the Year in recent Travel Industry Awards for the second year in succession. In addition to year-round low fares, Monarch also offers a unique range of tasty hot and cold meals onboard with prices from £3.00. Seats can be pre-booked at £6 per one-way flight to avoid the last minute free-for-all experienced on some other airlines, or from only £15, 48 extra-legroom seats are available which offer up to six inches of extra space. Regular travellers are rewarded too, with a range of benefits through the airline's loyalty scheme, Vantage Club.

Passengers travelling on scheduled flights can also avoid the queues at the airport and take advantage of online check-in which is available between seven days and 4.5 hours prior to departure.
