The company has bought a new plane to cope with demand for its new flights to Prague, Rome, Gran Canaria and Zante in Greece with holiday bookings up 50% on last year.
It will also be appointing new staff in roles including flight and cabin crew, engineers and ground operations staff.
The expansion will mean the operator will run its biggest ever flying programme out of the international airport next year.
Chief executive Steve Heapy said: "In our 10th year of flying from Belfast International Airport we are thrilled to be announcing major growth plans for summer 2015.
"Since our first flight took off we've not only increased capacity but we have also grown our destinations from two to 16.
"These developments really demonstrate our ongoing commitment to providing our loyal local customers with unrivalled choice and flexibility when it comes to planning their next well-earned break."
Uel Hoey, business development director at Belfast International Airport, added: "This very welcome announcement is the best way for Jet2.com to celebrate 10 years of flying from Belfast International Airport.
"The decision to base a third aircraft here reinforces the airline's belief in the Northern Ireland market, a market that has delivered a constant increase in bookings year-on-year."
