Monach airlines is taking over services previously run by bmibaby
Monarch has stepped up to the plate to replace services normally provided by dying airline bmibaby.
Flights from the East Midlands and Birmingham will go on sale on May 18 following the announcement that bmibaby is being closed down by new owner International Airlines Group.
Monarch has announced the new services will take over a quarter of bmibaby's existing routes in the Midlands. Schedules, timetables and tickets are set to be released next week.
New routes for Monarch in the East Midlands will include Malaga, Alicante, Palma and Faro. Birmingham will gain additional routes to the same places, with the addition of a new Barcelona flight.
With so many new routes to try out, holidaymakers will be needing to arrange more
travel insurance than ever.
Monarch managing director Kevin George said, "Monarch is delighted to be launching the new and additional services from both Birmingham and East Midlands airports, which will support travellers in the region left without flights to some of their favourite leisure destinations once bmibaby closes.
"The services, which account for 25% of bmibaby's existing routes from the Midlands, will commence this summer and provide customers with a quality alternative for all their holiday flights."
