Fares for the routes including taxes start from just £29.99, £24.99, and £29.99 respectively.

The airline has also retimed the first of its two daily flights to Belfast International Airport to a 7am departure making it much more suitable for the business traveller.

Palma will increase to a daily flight, Faro increases from its current one a week to four a week and Jersey increases from one a week to three a week.
