PRIMERA AIR has been forced to char­ter air­craft for its new ser­vices this sum­mer be­cause of the late de­liv­ery of its A321­neo air­craft. The low-cost Nordic air­line flies from Stansted to New York Ne­wark, Bos­ton, Toronto and Wash­ing­ton DC (from Au­gust 22), and Birm­ing­ham to New York and Toronto. VIR­GIN AMER­ICA is no more, hav­ing been bought by Alaska Air­lines in 2016. Some air­craft will con­tinue to fly with Vir­gin livery and in­te­ri­ors un­til they can be re­painted and re­fit­ted, but all reser­va­tions are now via Alaska Air­lines. Vir­gin check-in and gates will be re­placed by Alaska Air­lines.
