Monarch at East Midlands

Following the announcement that bmiBaby will be ceasing operations in the coming weeks, some airlines (in particular Monarch and Flybe) have increased their presence in the Midlands to compensate. As a result Monarch are basing 2 aircraft at East Midlands as of today, flying to Alicante, Faro, Malaga and Palma initially. The increase in flights at Monarch has resulted in a shortage of aircraft, leading to leased aircraft such as an Air Explore 737-400 and Titan 757-200 which have been flying from Birmingham recently.
