Primera moves on Berlin

Fulfilling its pledge to open more long-haul routes (BTN 6 August), and just over a week after announcing new service between Brussels and North America, Primera Air has said it is to open a transatlantic European base at Berlin Tegel Airport.

The airline says it will then fly from Berlin to New York, Boston and Toronto on its new Boeing B737 MAX 9 aircraft currently on order from the manufacturer.

Chief commercial officer Anastasija Visnakova said: “Berlin is a key base in our strategy. It is a major European city and we can bring a lot of passengers from North America who otherwise could not afford to travel there, plus it is a huge opportunity for German travellers to fly transatlantic for less.”

Primera’s plan has aroused interest as Tegel Airport so far has only three non-stop flights to two cities in North America, New York and Toronto, with only one airline operating year-round service.

Primera’s Brussels operation will see non-stop flights offered to three airports: Boston Logan, New York Newark Liberty and Washington Dulles from spring 2019.

These routes are also set to be operated with the new Boeing B737 MAX 9, which are scheduled to be delivered in early spring.
