By Jamie Grierson

Low-cost airline Ryanair is to create 1,000 UK jobs next year by flying one million more passengers on a number of new routes.

The Dublin-based carrier, which operates more than 1,500 flights a day across 28 countries, plans to add nine new routes to its three airports in the North West - Manchester, Liverpool and East Midlands.

Ryanair said it will add five new routes from Manchester to Corfu, Krakow, Lanzarote, Paphos and Trapani, two new routes from Liverpool to Lublin and Zadar and two new routes from East Midlands to Marseille and Menorca.

The move will add 360 jobs in Manchester, 180 positions in Liverpool and 460 roles at East Midlands airport, to an existing 6,000 staff.
