|Monarch Airlines offer five new routes from BHX|
This is good news from Monarch Airlines for Birmingham Airport. Not only are they keeping up the holiday links with Greece but they have opened up a new route to Rome, a destination long overdue for direct flights. Added to that the airline is offering new routes to Milan and Venice in Italy, and Dubrovnik in Croatia.
Whilst Monarch is seen mainly as a holiday airline this is also good for business passengers. Competition is good for business and it should be in the airport and airline sector. Those living in the metro Birmingham area and in the West Midlands generally want a local airport that offers an array of routes. The airport has done its bit, Midlanders must do theirs by flying from Birmingham!
