Jet2 will launch a new service between Newcastle and Split in 2009.
The airline will launch cheap flights to Split, the coastal Croatian city, from May 2nd, departing from Newcastle International Airport.
This brings the total number of flights from the carrier out of the Newcastle hub to 13.
The airline’s Phil Meeson said: "Croatia is a fantastic addition to the schedule from Newcastle. The city of Split offers everything for the holidaymaker, from culture and history to beaches and nightlife.
"With its Italian influences and miles of clean beaches, Croatia is fast becoming one of Europe’s leading holiday hot spots."
Jet2 recently announced a host of new flights for its summer 2009 schedule, featuring seven routes from Leeds Bradford Airport.
Destinations added to the 2009 roster include Avignon, Geneva, Krakow, La Rochelle, Paris and Prague.
The carrier also recently increased the frequency of flights from the Leeds hub to Malaga in Spain.
