A GIANT M was formed by Leeds students today at Leeds Bradford airport to help Monarch Airlines celebrate the launch of their new flights.
More than 60 students from Leeds College and Leeds Trinity University convened outside the airport to be assembled into a giant “M” – the symbol for Monarch Airlines.
The airline is officially celebrating the creation of their Leeds base which will create flights to new destinations such as Italy, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, Greece, Germany and Cyprus.
Monarch Airlines flight director Tony Hallwood, 55, said: “The longest serving leisure airline is commencing flights from Leeds Bradford International Airport for the first time.” He added: “It will bring Leeds Bradford Airport into the European stage.”
The flights are due to start over the summer.
Russell Ison, 47, head of Monarch’s PR department said: “We are proud to be flying from Leeds Bradford International Airport.”
