Ryanair has announced that it is to launch new routes from Aberdeen International Airport for the first time in more than five years.

The budget carrier said services to Alicante and Malaga would start in February.

Ryanair last ran a service from the Granite City in 2011, with a route to Dublin in Ireland.

Ryanair said the new Spanish services would deliver 50,000 passengers a year to the airport.

Airport managing director Carol Benzie said: "This is fantastic news from Ryanair and it clearly demonstrates the opportunity that exists for leisure capacity here in Aberdeen."
