London Luton Airport is pleased to announce that Monarch has now expanded its scheduled programme to include Corfu.
This service will operate from London Luton to Corfu International Airport on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. Prices start from just £68.99 one way including taxes and charges.
Simon Harley, Business Development Manager at London Luton Airport, says:
"It is great to announce the start of this new scheduled service to Corfu with one of our trusted partners, Monarch, which has built on the success of its charter flights last year. With excellent weather, beautiful beaches, a wealth of historical sites and other tourist attractions, Greece is one of the sunshine destinations of choice for discerning travellers. Corfu even has the added advantage for sports lovers of being the home of Greek cricket!”
