Primera Air’s latest long-haul route from London Stansted has taken to the skies with the launch of its new five flights a week service to Washington Dulles Airport.

The direct service to the US capital is operated by one of Primera Air’s brand-new Airbus A321NEO aircraft, which offer a choice of two cabins, full-service premium and low-fare economy, free Wi-Fi and onboard charging points.

The new Washington Dulles service joins the airline’s long-haul routes to New York, Boston and the Canadian city of Toronto which all launched earlier this year.

Mark Souter, London Stansted Airport’s Aviation Manager, said: “The launch of Primera Air’s new service to Washington Dulles Airport is a great addition to the airline’s long-haul offer from London Stansted and a clear reflection of the demand that exists across London and the East of England for convenient and affordable connections to the USA and beyond.

“We have made clear our ambition is to provide passengers with more choice and opportunities to travel long-haul from London Stansted, including more services to the USA and the addition of new routes to China and India, so the launch of this new service is another step towards delivering that goal.

“We look forward to working with Primera Air to make this exciting new service a great success in the coming months.”
