Ryanair plans a major expansion of its services from Manchester with four new routes to the Iberian peninsula and Canary Islands.

The Irish low-cost carrier says the move will double its passenger traffic at the northwest England airport.

Currently, its sole route from Manchester is to Dublin, which accounts for some 300,000 passengers annually.

The new services - to Alicante, Faro, Madrid and Tenerife - will see Ryanair's total number of passengers from Manchester climb to more than 600,000, says the carrier.

Alicante and Faro will be served daily, while Madrid and Tenerife will have four flights weekly.

The new services form the major part of Ryanair's summer schedule from Manchester, with flights starting on 14 April.

The existing Dublin sector, meanwhile, will expand from four to six flights daily.

Ryanair has also announced a new twice-weekly service from Humberside to Alicante, starting from 12 April.
