A new route has been announced from Aberdeen International Airport.
Ryanair is to launch a leisure route to Malta from the city airport next year.
Two flights a week are to be offered to the Mediterranean island.
Lynn Harwood, route development manager at Aberdeen Airport said: “We are delighted that Ryanair will be introducing their new Aberdeen to Malta route from April 2018.
“We believe this, the fourth new route to be introduced by Ryanair, will make an excellent addition to our growing catalogue of summer-leisure routes.
“We look forward to launching this new and exciting route to our passengers in the spring.”
A spokesman for Ryanair added: “Ryanair is pleased to launch a new Aberdeen route to Malta, with a twice weekly service beginning in April, the first of our summer 2018 routes, which will go on sale on the Ryanair.com website in September.”
