Monarch

Airline tickets with Monarch

Monarch Flights traces its origin all the way back to 1960 and it’s been evolving with the travel market ever since. As a British low cost airline, they are based out of London Luton airport, with additional bases in Manchester, Gatwick, Leeds/Bradford, and Birmingham.

Monarch Flights specialises in warm destinations such as the Canary Islands, Egypt, Greece, Cyprus, Turkey, and throughout the Mediterranean. They offer year round and seasonal flights across Africa, Asia, and Europe.

To compete with Ryanair and EasyJet, Monarch Flights has attempted to differentiate themselves by abolishing all debit card charges and applying only a £10 flat rate fee for credit card usage.

Monarch Flights Baggage Allowance

Monarch Flights allows hold baggage to weigh up to 20kgs. A maximum of two 20kg bags are allotted per person, meaning each person can carry up to 40kg in hold luggage. If your luggage weighs over 20kg, there will be extra fees for transporting it, up to 32kg, in which it will not be acceptable for carriage.

Hand baggage is limited to one piece of luggage per person at a size up to 56cm x 40cm x 25cm with a weight up to 10kg. Alternatively, you can carry on two separate pieces of hand luggage, as long as their combined size put together is no larger than 56cm x 40cm x 25cm.

You are also allowed a small third bag of duty free purchases from the departure airport.

If the flight is busy, there is a possibility that the room in the overhead lockers will run out, and you may have to check your hand luggage. That’s why we recommend carrying on two smaller bags of hand luggage so you’re able to stow them under your seat and not have to check them and incur fees much higher than the original checked baggage fees.

Liquids cannot exceed 100ml each, and much be stowed in a 1 litre re-sealable clear plastic bag.

Travel Extras

Unlike other airlines, which cut out on-board meals to reduce ticket prices, Monarch Flights offers an extensive in-cabin menu selection. They offer specialty meals from English breakfasts and pasta to chicken curries; deli sandwiches served both hot and cold and various snack boxes.

Even though Monarch Flights operated economy only cabins, they do offer My Extra Legroom, a pre-purchased benefit where you can reserve seats with 15% more legroom than regular seats. Booking these seats also guarantees that you’ll be sitting with members of your traveling party as opposed to not knowing your seat assignments until you reach the boarding gate.

Check In Procedure

Monarch Flights allows in-person check in as well as online check in. If checking in at the airport, make sure you arrive at the check in desk a minimum of 90 minutes before your flight’s scheduled departure (as they close 40 minutes before take-off.) Make sure you have your ID, travel documents, and booking number or reference at the ready.

If doing online check in and you’ve already purchased a seat, you can check in up to 28 days before departure. If you haven’t yet purchased a seat, you can do so any time during the online check in process. If you do not wish to purchase a specific seat, you can check in up to 24 hours before departure and you will be assigned an available seat at that time, free of charge.
