Fly Atlantic plans to launch a new transatlantic airline at Belfast International Airport in summer.
A new low-cost airline is set to offer transatlantic flights from Northern Ireland.
The announcement by Fly Atlantic has been described as a "game changer", filling the gap in the market of no direct flights currently operating between Belfast to North America.
Fly Atlantic is planning to start operating flights to Europe as well as North America from summer 2024.
Once fully operational, the airline said it intends to operate to 35 destinations from Belfast, and will create 21,000 new jobs by 2030.
That figure is to include 1,000 jobs created within the airline and up to 21,000 in tourism and support sectors.
Flights will start to go on sale from the beginning of 2024.
