Primera Air - low cost carrier to Europe & U.K.

Anyone flew with Primera Air before?

It's about to get cheaper to fly to Europe from Toronto

If you don’t have a vacation planned for summer 2018, consider heading to Paris!

A round trip flight from Toronto to France on super-cheap carrier Primera will now cost you about $500.

The airline has officially announced that it'll service a host of new destinations by next year, of which Toronto is one.

Flights to London, Paris, and Birmingham U.K. are scheduled to begin in May and June respectively. Trips leave from Toronto to both U.K. locations three times weekly, and to Paris four times weekly.

The service is obviously no-frills, though. The cheapest flight option only allows one carry-on bag. If you’d like to check a bag, get a meal, or upgrade your seat, it’ll all cost you extra.

That said, heading to Europe for a few hundreds bucks is nothing to complain about.

Even during summer I can usually find flights around $850 to Europe return on a regular airline. No way a cheapo airline is worth 500ish plus endless fees

No, they started in 2003 as a charter provider.

Primera Air is a scheduled operator, operating flights to more than 70 airports in Europe. Primera Air is based in Denmark and Latvia, and is part of the Primera Travel Group that operates travel agencies and tour operating companies in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Iceland and Estonia.

Never heard of them, but I hope Norwegian would start flying to Canadian cities. They currently have direct NYC - London flights for cheap. Plus, they provide free wifi.
