Monarch Airlines has launched twice-weekly scheduled service from Manchester to Verona’s Valerio Catullo Villafranca Airport.
Fares, including taxes, are from £27 one way and £64.98 round-trip.
“With over 40 years’ heritage we are confident our product offering is perfectly placed for the Italian leisure market,” says Kevin George, managing director of Monarch Airlines.
Continues George: “Our strategy for the airline is now firmly focused on scheduled operations and we are delighted to be adding the new Verona route to our already extensive network of leisure destinations across Europe.
“Adding Italy flights to our network will further reinforce our position as the leading leisure focused airline serving the Mediterranean and the Canaries,” says George.
