Primera Air has launched its latest low-fare long-haul route from London Stansted in the UK to Washington Dulles Airport in the US.
The new route will be operated five times a week and complements the airline’s existing services to New York, Boston and the Canadian city of Toronto, all of which launched earlier this year.
Mark Souter, London Stansted Airport’s aviation manager, said: “The launch of Primera Air’s new service to Washington Dulles Airport is a great addition to the airline’s long-haul offer from London Stansted and a clear reflection of the demand that exists across London and the East of England for convenient and affordable connections to the USA and beyond.”
With over 190 destinations across 38 countries, London Stansted is firmly positioned as a popular choice of airport for short-haul travel across Europe. The introduction of long-haul, low-fare routes is all part of the airport’s ambition to provide passengers with more choice and opportunities to travel beyond Europe. As well as including services to the US, Souter added that the airport intends to add new routes to China and India and “the launch of this new service is another step towards delivering that goal.”
