Holidaymakers are being offered a boost with the announcement of more holiday routes for the winter months this coming year.

The news comes on the back of dozens of other flight routes from the city being cancelled over the past two years.

From November this year, holiday company Thomson will be operating 189-seater flights from Norwich Airport to Spanish islands Tenerife and Alicante and Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt. The flights will operate every week for 26 weeks.

The Tenerife and Alicante routes have been reinstated after the airport received more than 500 requests for the two destinations within the last six months, and the Sharm el Sheikh is new.

The new routes are a boost to the airport after a number of services from the city were axed or reduced including direct flights to Paris and Guernsey by Flybe and to Barcelona and Palma by Spanish airline LTE.

Flybe also axed flights to Alicante and Malaga in 2007.

Elliott Summers, the airport's managing director said: 'We have worked very hard with our business partners and listened to our customers in delivering three fantastic new routes to destinations for which our clientele have been asking.

'It is now down to the people of Norfolk and beyond to support these routes and enjoy these new destinations. If they do I am sure that even more success will follow.
