Primera Air has announced four new transatlantic routes from Frankfurt!
Primera Air has announced another four new transatlantic routes from Frankfurt!
Primera Air is a low-cost long-haul carrier that is taking the Trans-Atlantic air trade head-on in a David vs Goliath battle against the full-service carriers, offering insanely low fares (such as $99 USD between Europe and North America).
Originally founded in Iceland in 2003 as a charter provider for Tour Operators, Primera Air has grown to become an airline that now carries over 1 million passengers each year with a fleet of 5 Airbus A321neo and 10 Boeing 737NG airliners, and has 23 more Boeing Max 9, Airbus A321neo and Airbus A321LR airliners on order.
They have had some growing pains, with their enthusiasm to expand they have unfortunately been let down by Airbus with expected new plane deliveries being late. This means that some planes have been rotated onto routes that have been ill-suited for them, such as using a Boeing 737NG to fly across the Atlantic (And due to range issues, has to refuel in Iceland halfway).
Where do these new routes fly to?
These new routes will be flying out of Frankfurt and will be onto New York (EWR), Boston (BOS), Montreal (YUL) and Toronto (YYZ), from June 2019.
