Low-cost carrier easyjet has announced three new flight routes will begin operating from Northern Ireland next summer.
New services to the Isle of Man, Naples and Valencia from Belfast International will run from summer 2018.
This brings the total number of easyJet routes operating out of Belfast to 31.
The new flights to Italy and Spain will run twice weekly throughout the summer and the Isle of Man route will continue throughout the year.
Ali Gayward, easyJet's UK country manager, said, "we have been committed to Belfast airport for over 18 years. We are proud to have carried over 50 million passengers in that time."
Graham Keddie, managing director at Belfast International Airport, said, "The addition of twice weekly year-round jet services on key days to the Isle of Man will offer genuine opportunity to grow the market between Northern Ireland and Isle of Man".
"Naples and Valencia are likewise two welcome easyJet additions to the departure boards at Belfast International offering high consumer demand."

He is currently in custody assisting with police enquiries.
A swan has been killed in what appears to be a crossbow attack close to Antrim Forum.
On Monday night, upon receiving a call, police and a vet went to the scene and attempted to save the bird, but it had moved into open water and could not be retrieved.
A post on Facebook page Debbie Doolittle's Wild Life confirmed the swan had been found dead on the Loughshore bank.
Antrim police have appealed for information.
Local Alliance councillor Neil Kelly said he is "appalled" by the incident.
“It is disgusting someone would apparently attack a defenceless animal and in such a way," he said.
“The seeming use of such a serious weapon as a crossbow lends this incident an even more sinister edge. This vile brutality towards animals should have no place in a decent society and it’s difficult to comprehend the mind of someone who would willingly partake in such behaviour."
He encouraged anyone with information to contact police.
