Now is the time to book a ticket bound for Europe. For those who have been saving up for their much-awaited plans on taking their European vacation, now is the big chance.
Saving on flights makes any traveler happy since a great vacation can cost so much. Cheap flights deals from the US to Europe are available now at $99 at Primera Air, according to Conde Nast Traveler. The Scandinavian airline announced new routes offering budget-friendly transatlantic fare beginning April 2018.
Travelers can take off from Newark in New Jersey. They can embark from Boston’s Logan International and fly to Paris, London, and Birmingham, UK. The flights will fly daily from Newark, and four times a week from Boston all year round.
Airlines Reporting Corp. (ARC) says that $99 rate is a calculated discount to the current $1,498.94 estimate for an average ticket to travel from New York City to Paris.
The basis of discounted price tag is on all round trip tickets purchased through US travel agencies. The travel period is from June to August this year from any airport in New York City to any airport in Paris.
PRIMERA AIMS A HEAD-TO-HEAD WITH OTHER BUDGET AIRLINES
Primera Air operated flights from more than 70 airports in Europe only before. This new transatlantic route will kick start the succeeding two more from three European hubs by the end of summer 2017.
With the addition of the US schedule, Primera Air aims to compete with other well-known budget airlines. To date, WOW and Norwegian are among the top -listed in the airlines which provide low-cost flying options.
The Scandinavian budget airline will fly with Airbus A321neos across the Atlantic. Domestic flights were the original purpose of these planes, but more and more carriers have expressed interest in flying single-aisle aircraft.
Although The Airbus A321neos are relatively small, it can seat 185 people, and offer both economy and premium cabins.
Just like its competitors, the offer comes with some fine print. Just like other budget airlines, travelers on Primera Air will expect to pay fees.
There are added fees on luggage check, and another fee if a passenger selects a seat in advance. In-flight food is cheap, neither. Individual meals start at $40 and can go up to $70.
The big catch is: the flights are one way. That means that travelers need to pay to fly back to Boston.
HERE’S HOW TO GET THE MOST OF YOUR MOOLAH
It is best to travel light. A passenger should have a lightweight carry-on to avoid paying for unnecessary fees. It would also be great for them to bring snacks. It will also be wiser if they eat first before boarding the plane.
Just like what the famous quote says, “The journey is more important than the destination.” No, it’s not that Europe isn’t the highlight of the trip. Of course, it is.
It is good to think about the perks. The Wi-Fi is free, and there are both electric and USB sockets for the traveler’s device. The best part is traveler’s get to relish on their savings.
