“2017 has been a groundbreaking year for Primera Air and once 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 and Boston routes from London, Birmingham and Paris,” said Andri M. Ingolfsson, the president and chairman of Primera Air.

“With our brand new Airbus A321neo airplanes, we are opening routes that were previously served only by wide-body aircrafts. With the efficiency of a new-generation of aircraft, we are now able to offer unprecedented prices to our passengers from France and UK to the US and Canada. At the same time, we are delighted to be offering a low-fare/high quality product and service concept, that will be perfect both for leisure and business travelers,” added Ingolfsson.

Primera Air will provide two classes of cabin - full-service Premium and low-fare Economy, with all passengers provided with WiFi and the ability to charge their devices on board.

Year-round services from new bases to Canada will commence in May 2018. Primera Air will offer three weekly flights to Toronto on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from London (Stansted) and Birmingham (BHX) and four weekly flights on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays from Paris (CDG) to Toronto. Tickets are on sale and the lowest fares will be available on

Daily flights to New York and four weekly flights to Boston from all three bases were announced earlier this summer.

For the next two years Primera Air will increase its presence at existing bases, open new bases and open other transatlantic routes to accommodate and utilize the 20 new Boeing Max9-ER aircraft the airline has on order.
