Ryanair will begin operations at Norwich airport for the first time ever next year.
The airline will fly to Alicante, Faro and Malta on Mondays and Fridays from April 1.
Ryanair said the new services would “drive invaluable inbound tourism for the region” and create over 60 jobs.
Jade Kirwan, head of communications, said: “We are delighted to announce that Ryanair’s low fares have finally arrived in Norwich.
“Our new Norwich operation will not only bring competitive fares and a wider selection of summer routes to our customers in Norwich and the wider Norfolk region, but will support important regional development through increased connectivity, inbound tourism, and local job creation.
“We look forward to further developing our partnership with Norwich airport and welcoming Norfolk customers onboard as we continue to grow to 300 million passengers by 2034.”
Richard Pace, managing director of Norwich airport, described the launch as “fantastic news for passengers”.
To celebrate Ryanair’s arrival at Norwich, the airline has launched a sale on the three new routes with fares between April 2024 and October 2024 priced from £29.99, which must be booked by December 9.
