There is going to be more competition over the Atlantic next summer. Danish low-cost airline Primera Air will fly between Toronto and its UK hubs at Stansted and Birmingham airports starting in May 2018. Birmingham and Stansted flights will operate three times a week and there will also be flights operating from Paris-Charles de Gaulle four times a week.
Stansted is one of London’s smaller airports with excellent connections into the city and it’s also handy for Canadians who want to see more of Eastern England with sights such as Cambridge and the Norfolk Broads. Birmingham Airport is in the centre of the country and so is better than the London airports for the regions of the Midlands and Northern England. It’s also a handy jumping off spot for the Principality of Wales.
Primera Air says it is planning further expansion over the next two years with more transatlantic flights from its European bases in the pipeline, and it has recently placed an order for twenty more aircraft. Click here for more info.
