Monarch has announced that it will be adding Lapland holidays direct from Birmingham to its winter programme from December 1, with three- and four-night breaks now on sale.

Flights will depart Birmingham twice-weekly on a Tuesday and Friday meaning that agents can tailor three- or four-night trips for customers. As an example, three-night breaks to Levi from Birmingham start from £749 per person.

Gary Anslow, the company's sales director, said: “We are really pleased to be extending our Lapland programme to Birmingham for this coming December. Our trade sales team will be out and about in the next few week’s visiting our agent partners to make sure they have everything they need to make the most of these new departures. "Our Lapland holidays from Gatwick and Manchester are always sold out, so extending to Birmingham departures is great news for those wanting to fly from the Midlands.”

The Birmingham programme will include 'Ready Steady Snow' holidays and 'Santa’s Tinsel Trail'. The Ready Steady Snow itinerary operates from December 1-26 and includes snow suit and boots hire, reindeer sleigh, husky sled and snowmobile mini-ride, Arctic Circle ceremony, a trip to Santa's Post Office to see Santa's elves hard at work, and a private meeting with Santa himself.

The Santa Tinsel Trail holidays run from December 15-26 and include the same activities as the Ready Steady Snow programme as well as a hunt for Santa on the tinsel trail, Arctic games and a Christmas feast on the last night. Meanwhile, an expanded holiday programme from Manchester this winter is also being offered, with the full Santa experience and Arctic Experience trips available to book for the first time in January and February.
