Monarch Airlines and Friedrichshafen Airport re-commence Ski routes to the Alps for winter 2013/14

Monarch Airlines will be re-starting its winter ski routes to Friedrichshafen Airport in Southern Germany this winter. Friedrichshafen is fast becoming the ski airport of choice for discerning travellers looking for a reliable and easy transfer to the best ski resorts in the Alps.

Kevin George, Managing Director of Monarch Airlines, commented:

“After successfully launching our new scheduled flights to ski destinations last winter 12/13, we are keen to highlight our products and services to ski and snowboard travellers who are beginning to think about their winter holiday for this year. Working with a key ski destination airport such as Friedrichshafen provides our great ski offering to customers.”

Located in Southern Germany, Friedrichshafen, is a skiing gateway to 4 countries from 1 airport. Friedrichshafen Airport is only a 90 minute transfer by coach, car or train to internationally recognised, quality ski resorts throughout Switzerland, Austria, Leichtenstein and Germany including St Anton, Lech, Zürs, and Flims-Laax.

Monarch Airlines’ new regular ski routes from London Gatwick and Manchester will fly direct into Friedrichshafen Airport, in Southern Germany. From December 2013 through to April 2014, Monarch airlines will operate six weekly direct flights from London Gatwick and Manchester Airport to Friedrichshafen.

With convenient flight times, just an hour and a half flight from London and two hours from Manchester, means that same day fly and ski is possible for those flying into the Airport and transferring on to one of the nearby sky resorts.
