Primera Air and Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg announced plans for new non-stop service from the German capital to Boston, New York, and Toronto.

Flights will commence in June 2019 and the airline will operate them using Boeing 737 Max 9 aircraft.

The new service demonstrates that the airline “sees the tourist and economic potential of the capital’s region,” said Engelbert Lütke Daldrup, chairman of the airport’s board of directors.

The flights will operate between Berlin Tegel Airport and Boston Logan International Airport, Toronto Pearson International Airport, and John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City.  One-way fares start at €149 ($173).

Primera already operates non-stop service linking London and Paris to Boston, Montreal, New York, Toronto, and Washington, D.C. Primera Travel Group owns the airline and is a company owned by multiple tour operators in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Iceland, and Estonia.
