New flights to Tenerife and an extra service to Palma in Majorca will be available from Aberdeen Airport from next summer, it has been announced.

Thomson and First Choice said the move would mean customers would not be tied to seven or 14-day holidays to the popular sun destinations.

Paul Cooper, airport negotiations manager for Thomson and First Choice, said it was a response to customer demand.

Aberdeen Airport hailed the news.
