Monarch Airlines, more commonly known as simply Monarch, is a British low-cost airline based at Luton Airport. It features over 30 Airbus and Boeing aircraft that fly daily to 100+ destinations worldwide.

Online check-in

Monarch Airlines online check-in opens 28 days prior to and up to 6 hours before scheduled flight departure. Passengers can pay for checked baggage during online check-in and/or pre-allocate their seat.

Alternatively, the Monarch Airlines airport check-in desks are provided free of charge for passengers carrying hand luggage and/or hold luggage. Those who didn’t pay for a pre-allocated seat during the booking or online check-in process may also check-in for free. They will be allocated a seat at random.

Monarch Airlines airport desks are open 3 hours prior to scheduled flight departure time at the London Luton, London Gatwick, Manchester and Birmingham airports. Airport check-in opens 2 hours prior to scheduled flight departure time in overseas airports.

Similarly, airport check-in closes 40 minutes prior to flights (1hr prior to long-haul flights). All passengers arriving after the aforementioned deadline will not be allowed to board.

Cabin luggage allowance

All passengers have two hand baggage options on Monarch flights. They may choose between 1 piece of luggage weighing a maximum of 5kg, or 2 pieces of hand luggage weighing a combined total of 5kg. In addition to their hand luggage, passengers may also carry on 1 small duty-free shopping bag from the departure airport.

Checked baggage allowance

All checked bags are subject to a fee on Monarch flights. Each passenger can check up to 5 bags weighing a combined total of 20kg. Any hold luggage that exceeds 20kg will incur an excess baggage fee per kilo. Any bags exceeding 32kg will not be accepted.

If you plan on checking a bag, we recommend that you book online as it 50% cheaper than doing so at the airport.

Tip: Passengers travelling together may pool their baggage allowance on the condition that they have paid the relevant checked baggage fees. For example, two passengers may purchase 1 bag and share the 20kg weight allowance between the two of them, etc.
