Your Skis Fly Free This Winter If You Fly Monarch
It’s never too early to start thinking about ski season, and that’s especially the case with November just around the corner. Sure the good flakes might not start coating those slopes until a month or two from now, but we’re thinking that there will be plenty of the white fluffy stuff to get you outdoors. The only problem with skiing is that there’s a lot of equipment to lug and things get even more inconvenient when you need to fly to the mountain. Thankfully there’s one airline over in Europe that’ll serve as a lift for your equipment, and they’ll do it for free.
Monarch Airlines out of the United Kingdom is gearing up for ski season and offering to carry your stuff under the belly of the plane without an extra fee. You do need to book your tickets between now and the end of 2012, and you’ll end up saving yourself roughly $65. They’ve even got low rates to many popular destinations, as rates start around $55 each way inclusive of taxes to spots like Friedrichshafen and Innsbruck.
The rules say you need to fly before April of 2013, and that’s probably not too big of a deal because that’s when the starts melting and the grass starts appearing. The free ski flights are only to spots like Friedrichshafen, Grenoble, Innsbruck, Munich, Barcelona, Venice and Verona, but that seems pretty inclusive to us. Just head on over to the website for the full set of rules and what not, and they’ve even got some decent rates on ski packages and other snowy stuff.
