President and Chairman of Primera Air, Andri M. Ingolfsson, said:
We are very proud to announce our new bases and routes to the U.S.
With our brand new Airbus A321neo airplanes, we will operate routes traditionally served only by wide-body aircraft. Owing to unmatched efficiency of these new-generation aircraft, we will be able to offer unprecedented prices to passengers from France and the UK to the U.S.
At the same time, we are very excited to offer a product and service concept that merges low fares and high quality – perfect both for leisure and business travelers.
The new aircraft cabin has two classes: Premium and Economy. All passengers will have access to Wi-Fi and the option to charge their devices on board.
With these additions, Primera Air serves to more than 70 airports in Europe and may now represent great competition for Wow Air and Norwegian Air.
