Ryanair has announced nine new routes from airports in the north-west and Midlands for the summer 2013 season.
The no-frills giant is adding five new routes from Manchester as well as two routes from both Liverpool and East Midlands.
The new Manchester services will be to Corfu, Krakow, Lanzarote, Paphos and Trapani (Sicily) while Lublin and Zadar are being added from Liverpool and Marseilles and Menorca are new destinations from East Midlands.
Ryanair added that it would also be increasing capacity on 17 existing routes from East Midlands airport. Other carriers, such as Flybe and Monarch, have also expanded operations from the airport following the shutting down of Bmibaby in September.
Michael O’Leary, Ryanair’s chief executive, claimed that the new routes would “sustain 1,000 new jobs” at the three airports.
