Monarch Airlines have today confirmed that they have cancelled their order for six Boeing Dreamliners. The move has come as Monarch have announced that they wish to continue strengthening its short haul network and to focus on scheduled flights.
The short haul strategy can be seen through the airlines introduction of new services to Paphos, Antalya, Bodrum, Dalaman, Sharm el Sheikh and Corfu.
In a statement Monarch said: 'The decision by The Monarch Group to terminate its order for the B787 does not affect Monarch Aircraft Engineering Ltd’s strategy to support the Dreamliner. Monarch Aircraft Engineering is proud to have been awarded Boeing GoldCare approval and is committed to providing line and base capability for the B787 from early 2012 in addition to its existing support of Boeing’s 737, 757, 767 and 777 aircraft.'
