Monarch Airlines has announced plans to create up to 300 jobs at Birmingham Airport.

A company spokesman said the construction of a new hangar would create 150 jobs initially, with the possibility of another 150 later.

The engineering facility will be large enough to accommodate two Boeing 777-300ER aircraft or 10 narrow-body aircraft.

Monarch said it is due to be completed and operational by the end of 2013.

Birmingham Airport is one of the airline's six UK bases.
