Low-cost Nordic airline Primera Air will be launching direct service to Brussels from three U.S. cities starting next year, and flights have just gone on sale.
Those who live in or near Boston, Washington and New York City will be able to fly directly to Belgium’s capital as early as next spring. Service from Newark Liberty International Airport will begin May 9. Passengers from Washington and Boston will be able to fly nonstop to Brussels starting June 2.
The flights will be operated by the new, high technological Boeing 737 Max 9.
Two aircraft will be based at Brussels Airport. Primera Air is a low-fare Nordic airline that operates flights from Europe to more than 70 destinations across the Mediterranean, Middle East, Asia, Caribbean and North America.
Anastasija Visnakova, Chief Commercial Officer of Primera Air: “Our mission is to make expensive transatlantic travel a thing of the past and we are glad to bring low fare, long-haul flights to Brussels. It will give an opportunity for local travellers to fly to the US and Canada in a more affordable way as well as bring more North American travellers to Brussels.”
Tickets for the transatlantic routes are now on sale for $150 USD one way. Primera Air already operates transatlantic flights to Newark, Boston and Toronto-Pearson from London Stansted and Paris Charles de Gaulle with a fleet of 8 Airbus A321neo aircraft. Primera Air pricing policy on these routes allows it to compete with the low-cost carrier Norwegian.
