From summer 2014, the flights will take off to Bordeaux in south west France and Jersey in the Channel Islands.
Seats for both routes will go on sale next month.
On Monday easyjet staged a water arch salute for arriving aircraft with themed cakes and Bordeaux wine on offer.
Ali Gayward, easyJet's Head of Northern Ireland, said: "We're pleased to mark this important anniversary for easyJet by announcing two new routes for Northern Ireland."
She added that the new flights to Bordeaux and Jersey will offer a range of new holiday and business connections to and from Northern Ireland.
"Since we launched our first flight to Belfast in 1998 over 32 million people have chosen to fly with us. Today we're saying thank you to all those passengers who have helped make easyJet Northern Ireland's largest airline.
"Belfast was one of our first bases outside Luton and we look forward to celebrating many more anniversaries here," Ms Gayward added.
At present, easyJet has six aircraft based permanently at Belfast International Airport and is employing over 200 crew and pilots there. More than three million people fly to and from Belfast International Airport with easyJet annually.
Gerry Lennon, Chief Executive of Visit Belfast, said: "Throughout the last 15 years, Belfast's tourist offering has been transformed. A modern, vibrant city with unrivalled world class attractions and events, hotels, restaurants, pubs and shopping, annual visitor numbers have increased from around 1.5 million in 1999 to more than 7.5 million today."
He continued: "We wish easyJet continued success and we look forward to greeting thousands more visitors over the years to come."
