Low-cost airline, Norwegian, will start three new routes from Malaga airport next month as well as increasing their onboard capacity by just over 20 per cent for the summer period, adding nearly 230,000 extra seats for passengers in total.

One of the new routes involves the use of the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, the largest aeroplane using Malaga airport, with capacity for 344 passengers.
