Not much more to add at this stage... The offical blurb on a competitor website reads at the foot of the page:

"UK flights to Lamezia 2011" - Flights to Lamezia from London Gatwick Airport have been secured with Monarch airlines starting April 2011 through until end of October 2011. Should these flights prove popular plans will go ahead to add Manchester to Lamezia flights at a later date to be announced.

Fingers crossed.

Regards,

Mickey 'O'

I am quite sure that was copied from an earlier post on this forum and should therefore not be seen as a confirmation. I am also quite sure there will be some more interesting news this autumn.

Hi pgreenman,

Any chance you could copy and paste the email reply confirmation from Monarch?

Anticipated Thanks,

Hi Donstenk,

My apologies if this announcement exists in an earlier post on this forum, clearly an oversight on my behalf.

As for your surety that there will be some more interesting news this autumn... go on... share and share alike... nudge, nudge, wink, wink.

I won't tell anyone... Ha, ha, ha.

Seriously though i'm sure none of us will be offended by yet to be fully confirmed high probabilities?

Anticipated Thanks,

Mickey 'O'

A little more detail...

NEW ROUTES TO LAMEZIA TERME - IMPORTANT UPDATE: (Information added 18 August, 2010).

N.B. We have just heard that Monarch Airlines have confirmed that they will be running a chartered flight on a Saturday morning from Gatwick to Lamezia Terme from 30th April, 2011 to 29th October, 2011. From the information we have received, we understand that, although this flight is being laid on primarily as part of a holiday package deal, one third of the seats on the 'plane will be made available to passengers who wish to book flights for themselves. If the flight is well-supported, there are plans to add a flight from Manchester to Lamezia. All of this is good news for anyone travelling to this area of Calabria, especially that of Amantea or Belmonte Calabro, as it is under an hour's drive from Lamezia Terme airport.

Regards,

Mickey 'O'

good evening. After scouring th Monarch Website and couldn't find details i emailed them last night and today i got the following reply.

:( :( :( :?:

Good Afternoon
Thank you for your email

Unfortunately after looking into this we will not be offering Lamezia next year.
So we would not be able to offer this route for you, is there an alternative that you would look into.











If you require further information, please feel free to contact me.
Kind Regards
