Low-cost airline Primera Air has announced it will start flying direct from Birmingham to Toronto, Canada three times a week from May 2018.

It will be welcome news for Birmingham travellers, after fellow airline Norwegian decided to end three Spanish routes from the midlands to Barcelona, Malaga and Tenerife after this weekend.

"We are very proud to be offering a low-fare and high quality product and service concept, that will be perfect both for leisure and business travelers," said Andri M. Ingolfsson, the president and chairman of Primera Air.

William Pearson, aviation director at Birmingham Airport, added: "It is welcome news that Primera Air is expanding its choice of popular transatlantic destinations from Birmingham by adding the new route of Toronto. Having announced two routes to Boston and New York in July of this year this shows the demand that Primera Air is seeing from the midlands."

In 2016, Birmingham was the UK’s seventh busiest airport with an estimated 11.6 million passengers a year.
