Routes to Kaunas and Palma de Mallorca will remain unchanged.
Ryanair’s head of advertising Dara Brady said that the airline was "delighted" to launch the new flights.
"[They] will allow us to bring more low fares, more competition and choice to even more UK consumers/visitors," he commented.
Mr Brady added that tickets were on sale for the new routes covering the period from October until March 30th.
