There was a British airline called Monarch Airlines that operated from 1967 to 2017. Here's a quick rundown of its history:

  • Founded in 1967: Two businessmen, Bill Hodgson and Don Peacock, launched Monarch Airlines with the aim of making air travel more accessible for British vacationers.
  • Early Years (1960s-1970s): The airline started with a couple of Bristol Britannia turboprop aircraft and focused on charter flights for package holidays. In the 1970s, they transitioned to jet airliners like Boeing 720s to meet the growing demand for leisure travel.
  • Expansion and Innovation (1980s-2000s): The 1980s saw further fleet growth with Boeing 737s and the adoption of the Boeing 757, making them early adopters of extended-range twin-engine operational procedures (ETOPS). Monarch became a low-cost carrier in 2004 and eventually phased out charter operations entirely.
  • Demise (2017): Unfortunately, Monarch entered administration in 2017, marking the largest collapse of a British airline at that time. This left a significant number of passengers stranded.

If you'd like to delve deeper, you can search for "Monarch Airlines history" online. There are resources like Wikipedia and aviation news articles that provide a more detailed account of the airline's journey.
