No you didn’t read that wrong. You can literally fly to Europe and back next year for as little as 99 bucks – hurrah! Scandi airline Primera Air recently announced it will start the ultra-cheap route from both Newark and Boston airports to Birmingham, England, or London Stansted – oh, and Paris Charles De Gaulle, too.
“Tell me more” we hear you say! Flights will run once a day from Newark, and four times a week from Boston, and yes, you can start booking them now.
Based in Denmark and Latvia, Primera Air operates in 70 airports throughout Europe and they plan to add several more transatlantic routes before the end of summer 2017. And guess what: the airline will be using its ultra-comfy Airbus A321neos, which has economy and premium cabin options. Score.
Now here’s the boring part. If you choose to fly the ‘light option’, you’ll have to pay an extra 45 smackers on top, especially if you choose to sit in an exit row. If you want food, you’ll fork out another $40 ($70 for the premium option) and $45 per checked bag, but it still works out cheaper than flying any other major airline.
