Primera Air to launch flights from Stansted to Toronto
Direct flights to Toronto in Canada will launch at Stansted Airport in June next year.
It will be a third Transatlantic route for Primera Air. The Danish airline will offer three flights a week all year round in addition to daily services to New York’s Newark Airport that begin in April 2018 and four departures a week to Boston Logan Airport from May next year.
The route is London Stansted’s fifth largest unserved destination with over 280,000 passengers from the airport’s catchment area flying from other airports to Toronto in the last year.
Andri Ingolfsson, Primera Air president and chairman, said: “With our brand new Airbus321NEO aircraft, we are opening routes previously traditionally served only by wide-body aircraft.”
Ken O’ Toole, Stansted’s chief executive, said: “As a forward thinking and innovative airport we have the ambition and runway capacity to enable us to offer more flights to more destinations across North America, the Middle East and further afield and satisfy the growing demand from businesses and passengers across the region to fly long-haul from their local airport.”
