Five new routes are opening from Manchester Airport, the airline easyJet has announced.
Starting from next February the budget operator will fly to Reykjavik in Iceland, Venice, Antalya in Turkey and the Greek Islands of Mykonos and Santorini.
The airline says it will also increase the number of planes based at Manchester from six to seven.
It means around 80 jobs will be created for pilots, cabin crew and ground staff. The region could also see a boost of 250 indirect jobs.
The airline first started flying from Manchester in 2008 and since then has flown 4.6m passengers from the city.
