DUTCH airline KLM will launch a fifth daily service from Glasgow to Amsterdam in time for next summer.
KLM announced the increase in the frequency of flights to their main hub at Schiphol in the face of rising passenger numbers.
The move will secure Glasgow's position as one of the airline's busiest departure points in their extensive UK network.
They will also increase the number of flights they offer from Edinburgh and Aberdeen.
Henri Hourcade, of KLM, said: "We are delighted to be able to announce a frequency increase on all our Scottish services and hope they will be welcomed by passengers."
Councillor Gordon Matheson, leader of Glasgow City Council, said: "At a time when new routes and additional air services are in shorter supply, this demonstrates continuing confidence in Glasgow as a key European destination."
Amanda McMillan, managing director of Glasgow Airport, added: "This is fantastic news as KLM's Amsterdam service is one of our best-performing city routes."
