TORONTO — Low-cost carrier Primera Air is expanding its network out of Canada with new service to one of Europe’s biggest capital cities starting June 2019.

The LCC says it will begin direct long-haul flights to Berlin Tegel Airport (TXL) out of Toronto as well as New York and Boston next summer.

Flights will be operated on the carrier’s new Boeing MAX 9 fleet. Introductory fares start at €149 one-way.

“Berlin has been one of the key bases in our strategy, as it is one of the major European cities and we can bring a lot of tourists from North America, who otherwise could not afford to travel there,” says Primera’s Chief Commercial Officer, Anastasija Visnakova.

Primera already operates direct flights from London and Paris to Toronto and Montreal as well as New York, Boston, Washington D.C.
