Quotes

"It is now time for the government to engage with all of the parties concerned and do everything it can to make this deal happen and help Monarch survive and thrive" the chief exec said
"Monarch is a fine airline with a great tradition, but unfortunately in the 21st century that's not quite enough, you also have to have a low cost base to compete with the giants of Easyjet and Ryanair and that's what's behind this plan to cut pay to cut jobs to compete, to find a space that will actually allow the airline to thrive"
"Although the discussions over the past few weeks have been difficult and our members are sacrificing a lot, what is clear is that they remain committed to the future of Monarch and have voted accordingly" he added
Monarch Group CEO, Andrew Swaffield, said: "This vote represents another step forward in our efforts to transform Monarch and demonstrates a commitment from every member of the Monarch workforce."
