Though, if you're looking to jump on the deal, be warned that the site is experiencing heavy traffic and has been down.
The airline looks like it's attempting to compete with other transatlantic budget airlines like Norwegian and WOW. Primera said in the announcement that it will be adding two more transatlantic routes by the end of this summer.
However, like most budget airlines, there are asterisks to the low prices. There are fees. "Light" economy seats on a transatlantic flight will bill you $45 for picking your seat (that's even higher in an exit row), $40 for a meal, and $45 for checking a bag one-way.
Once you start tallying the damage, the budget trip can add up rather quickly. But for the thrifty traveler who can pack light, sit by strangers, and pack a little something to eat, Primera is yet another option to get yourself overseas on the cheap.
