Passengers will have even more choice of holiday destinations after Rynair announced yet another destination from the North East.
The new flights to Madrid come after the low-cost airline added three new routes to Faro, Girona and Palma, and five new summer services to Gdansk, Lanzarote, Tenerife, Warsaw and Wroclaw.
It has also confirmed more flights to Alicante, Dublin (double daily) and Malaga, which will deliver over 750,000 customers a year and support 560 jobs at Newcastle Airport.
