Ryanair has announced new routes flying from Glasgow International, Prestwick and Edinburgh for its summer 2017 schedule.

The budget airline will run two flights a week from Glasgow International to Lisbon, Valencia, Zadar (Croatia) and Palanga (Lithuania).

The new twice-weekly route from Glasgow Prestwick will be to Barcelona Girona.

There will also be five new routes from Edinburgh Airport to Barcelona Girona, Ibiza, Milan, Porto and Vigo.

Ryanair said the new routes would help deliver about two million customers per year and support about 1,500 jobs at Glasgow and Prestwick airports and 1,800 jobs at Edinburgh Airport.

The airline said it would also add six new summer routes next year from Glasgow International to Alicante, Brussels, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Malaga and Sofia.

It is also increasing the frequency of flights to Berlin to six times a week.

From Prestwick, Ryanair will also increase the frequency of summer 2017 services to Ibiza, Palma and Tenerife.

A new summer route to Warsaw will leave Edinburgh Airport three times a week, and there will also be more flights to Palma, Rome and Tenerife.
