first_imgThe British public are still willing to book flights to the Mediterranean despite feeling the effects of the credit crunch, according to the results of a new survey.A recent poll by cheap flights carrier Monarch revealed that 36 percent of flight passengers thought that the credit crunch was having no effect on their flying habits, while a further 41 percent said that they were looking to spend less despite flying the same.Commenting on the findings, Liz Savage, managing director of Monarch’s scheduled service division, said: “The results of our recent online survey are contradictory to the current situation in the economy, however, that’s not really surprising when looking at the recent booking patterns for Monarch’s scheduled flights.”Ms Savage added that bookings for summer flights were currently 43 percent up on last November’s figures, which suggests that more people are taking advantage of the lower fares currently being offered by airlines.The latest figures from the National Air Traffic Service (Nats) have revealed that the number of flights in UK airspace fell by 5.3 percent in October compared to the same period last year.Find flights from Monarch here.
