Primera Air to suspend transatlantic services from UK
Primera Air has confirmed that it plans to reinstate transatlantic services next year once the aircraft is available and that this announcement does not affect Primera Air’s short haul services in operation from Birmingham, UK.
Since launching New York services last month, load factors have been positive, averaging 70%.
This reinforces our knowledge that the demand for flights between Birmingham and North America is strong, with a market size already using Birmingham of more than 130,000 passengers.
The carrier is contacting all customers booked on services from the 21st June to give refunds or transfer onto other services. Flights to Toronto were due to start on the 26th June. ■
