Scandinavian airline Primera Air is launching flights from its bases at London Stansted, Birmingham, and Paris to Toronto, Canada for £149 ($US196) — and they’re already on sale.
The “low-fare/high quality” routes — which will commence in May 2018 — will be served three times a week from London and Birmingham (Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays) and four times per week from Paris (Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays).
The flights will be serviced by brand new Airbus A321neo aeroplanes, which allow the airline to offer “unprecedented prices to our passengers from France and UK to US and Canada.”
The £149 “light” fare includes one item of hand luggage, with a maximum weight of 10kg, and free WiFi. Seat selection, checked baggage, and meals are extra money. There is a “premium” and “comfort” fare option, but these cost £399 and £199 each way respectively.
In July, Primera announced that from April 2018, it will also be offering services from London Stansted and Birmingham to New York’s Newark Airport and Boston from just £121 one way, or return for only £271.
