Primera Air announces the opening of another North America destination from its new base in Birmingham. Toronto (YYZ) will be served three times per week on a year-round basis.
“Yet again, we are very proud to announce our new direct routes from our European bases to Canada. Toronto will be a great addition to our earlier announced New York (EWR) and Boston routes from Birmingham.
“With our brand new Airbus321NEOs airplanes, we are opening routes previously traditionally served only by wide-body aircrafts. With unmatched efficiency of these new-generation aircraft, we will be able to offer unprecedented prices to our passengers from the UK. At the same time, we are very proud to be offering a low-fare/high quality product and service concept, that will be perfect both for leisure and business travelers,” says Andri M. Ingolfsson, the President and Chairman of Primera Air.
Aircraft will provide two classes of cabin - full-service Premium and low-fare Economy, Wi-Fi and opportunity for all passengers to charge their devices on board.
Services from Canada will commence in May 2018 and will be year-round operations. Primera Air to Toronto (YYZ) will offer three weekly flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from. Tickets are available on sale and the lowest fares, starting from £149.00 (one way, all taxes included) can be booked at www.primeraair.com
Daily flights to New York and four weekly flights to Boston to Birmingham were announced earlier this summer.
William Pearson, Aviation Director at Birmingham Airport, said: “It is welcome news that Primera Air is expanding its choice of popular Transatlantic destinations from Birmingham by adding a new route of Toronto. Having only announced two routes to Boston and New York in July of this year this shows the demand that Primera Air is seeing from the Midlands.
“Demand for travel to US and Canadian destinations from the West Midlands is high and Primera Air is offering fantastic seat prices meaning it is likely Toronto will be very popular. We recommend passengers book ahead to avoid disappointment as we expect seats will sell quickly.”
For the next two years Primera Air will increase its presence on the existing bases and open other trans-Atlantic routes, as well as open new bases, as the airlines has 20 new Boeing Max9-ER on order.
Primera Air is scheduled operator, operating flights to more than 70 airports in Europe. Primera Air is based in Denmark and Latvia, and is part of the Primera Travel Group that operates travel agencies and tour operating companies in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Iceland and Estonia.
