Primera Air summer fares under $500 BOS, EWR, YYZ to London or Paris

Primera Air is a Danish-Latvian airline launching transatlantic nonstop routes from Boston, Newark and Toronto to London Stansted STN, Birmingham BHX and Paris CDG in May and Washington IAD in August.

Introductory fares from Boston and Newark are $159 one way to London Stansted STN, Birmingham BHX and Paris CDG and $195 one way from Toronto. Ticket prices start at $186-$255 for Europe to USA/Canada. One way ticket prices are as low as $99 one way in October and November 2018.

Round trip ticket prices are as low as $336 for Boston to Paris in May or $465 in July and $512 to London in July. This deal, like Norwegian and Wow transatlantic flights, is best for travelers who can pack light and fly with one free 10kg/22lb carryon bag. The cost goes up $90 each way for one checked bag, self-selected seat assignment at booking and meal.

Primera Air has operated charter flights in Europe for more than a decade and moved into commercial service a few years ago. Their pricing model is similar to Norwegian Airlines with true one way pricing for flights.
