Primera Air, has announced its winter schedule from London Stansted Airport with flights to New York, Toronto and Washington DC starting on October 31.
Following its UK launch in the spring, the low-cost long-haul Nordic airline claims to have experienced high demand across its transatlantic flights with the Stansted-New York route proving particularly popular.
In response, Primera Air will continue its daily flights to New York and will fly three flights per week to Toronto and four flights per week for the anticipated Washington DC route which starts on August 22.
Its seasonal Stansted-Boston route will make its return to the schedule in early 2019.
All routes will be operated by its new fleet of Airbus A321neo aircraft.
“The demand we’ve seen so far shows there is a lot of interest in the catchment area of London Stansted, including Greater London, Essex and surrounding cities such as Cambridge and Peterborough,” said Anastasija Visnakova, chief commercial officer.
“There is clearly a huge amount of appetite for low-fare transatlantic flights and we’ve seen more than 70,000 passengers booking flights on our new transatlantic routes. This gives us a great amount of encouragement to build on the existing routes throughout winter and continue to run a daily operation between London Stansted and New York.”
