Primera Air launches new Stansted-Washington DC route

Low-fare carrier, Primera Air, has launched its latest long-haul route from London Stansted to Washington Dulles Airport.

The new route will be operated five times a week and will complement the airline’s existing services to New York, Boston and the Canadian city of Toronto, which all launched earlier this year.

Commenting on the new direct service to the US capital, 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.”
