Monarch Airlines, simply known as Monarch, was a British charter and scheduled airline. Monarch was established on 5 June 1967 by a pair of British businesspeople, Bill Hodgson and Don Peacock. Unlike typical airlines at the time, Monarch was founded with the express intent of conveying British holidaymakers to tourism hotspots throughout Europe. The company later became a low-cost airline in 2004 before abandoning charter flying completely. The airline's headquarters were based at London–Luton, and it had operating bases at Birmingham, Leeds/Bradford, London–Gatwick and Manchester.
