Monarch is to expand its Gatwick to Barcelona service
An airline's newly launched Gatwick to Barcelona flight service is set to be extended, meaning it'll be easier than ever to visit the Catalonian city.
Monarch launched the new routes to the Spanish city with initial daily flights on October 21, however the airline plans to expand this to 11 services every week from Saturday.
The new expansion will give Britons even more options when it comes to heading to the city to watch its famous football team and wander its historic streets.
However, before jetting off to enjoy the football, the local culture and the rest of what the city has to offer, holidaymakers should arrange some
travel insurance to protect against unforeseen circumstances.
"Barcelona is one of the UK's most popular short break destinations and we are delighted to be adding this to our route network from London Gatwick in addition to our existing flights from Manchester," said Kevin George, Monarch's managing director.
