The new routes will bring Primera’s total fight options from the U.S. to eight, with operations out of Newark Liberty, Washington Dulles, and Boston Logan. Here are the three new offerings that will be offered to American travelers:
NEWARK LIBERTY: Service to Brussels is set to begin on May 9 with one daily round-trip flight. This service will join existing routes out of Newark to London Stansted and Paris Charles de Gaulle.
BOSTON LOGAN: The four times weekly flight to Brussels will launch on June 2. This flight will be in addition to existing routes currently serving London Stansted and Paris Charles de Gaulle.
WASHINGTON DULLES: Primera Air will begin services from Dulles to Brussels with flights three times per week beginning on June 2. Currently, Primera operates a route between Dulles and London and just launched a new route on Thursday to Paris Charles de Gaulle.
All of the new flights to Brussels will go on sale on Tuesday, August 28. Fares will start as low as $149 one way for trips from Boston and Newark and $199 one way for flights out of Washington Dulles. Because it is a bargain airline, buyers need to be aware of additional costs. The least expensive fares only allow passengers to bring one carry-on bag with checked baggage costing up to $44.99 per piece. Meals on all trans-Atlantic flights will cost passengers $29.99. If you would like to book your flight with a credit card, that will cost you a convenience fee of $12.99. And picking your seat in advance will add another $39.99 to the total flight cost.
The new routes to Brussels will use brand new Boeing 737 Max 9 jets. These airplanes are estimated to be delivered to Primera in early 2019.
