Ryanair is set to launch a new, twice-weekly service between Dublin Airport and Naples this winter.

The new route, which will commence in October, was announced today as one of a raft of nine new services from the Italian city.

Fares, starting from €29.99, go on sale tomorrow (March 8).

The sale fares are only available for 48 hours, however - in a promotional offer set to expire at midnight on Thursday, March 9.

Naples (Napoli) is Italy's third-largest city, serving up a breathtaking mix of food, art and architecture - albeit with a gritty and graffiti-strewn edge.

Ryanair has said it expects traffic to fall by 3pc from Ireland in 2017, but in recent months has also announced new winter services to Tours and Valencia.

Last week, it added extra flights from Dublin to Liverpool ahead of Premier League games on April 1 (Liverpool v Everton) and April 23 (v Crystal Palace).

It has also added extra flights between Manchester and Dublin for Man Utd v Chelsea (April 16) and Man Utd v Swansea (April 30).
