Primera Air Flew a Million Passengers in 2017
Last year was a record year for Primera Air, as the airline carried more than one million passengers for the first time.
Direct sales on the airline’s website grew 125 per cent, while the company’s revenue increased 13.7 per cent compared to 2016. All figures have been reached with a consistent load factor of 85 per cent.
As previously announced, Primera Air is opening new bases in Birmingham, London Stansted, and Paris Charles de Gaulle to commence flights to New York, Boston and Toronto already this April, along with new routes from the UK to Malaga, Palma de Mallorca, Alicante, Barcelona and Chania.
In the next two years, Primera Air plans to increase its presence on current bases and to add new transatlantic routes and bases, as the airline has 20 new Boeing MAX9-ER on order.
