Travelers looking to head to Europe in 2019 will have even more cheap flights to choose from as budget airline Primera Air has announced three new routes it will be launching from the U.S. and Canada.

The Icelandic low-cost airline offers affordable long-haul flight options to passengers and already operates nonstop flights to European stops that include Paris and London from New York, Toronto, Boston, Montreal, and Washington, D.C.

The airline announced on Wednesday that it will begin operating flights to Madrid, Frankfurt, and Berlin from several U.S. and Canadian cities next spring and summer.

From New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, Primera will offer daily flights to Berlin at $149 one-way starting June 7 of 2019 and to Frankfurt at $149 one-way starting on June 16 of 2019.

Meanwhile Madrid flights will operate from Newark Liberty International Airport at $149 one-way starting on July 16 of 2019. Return flights to the U.S. start at $169 one-way from Brussels to New York and at $173 one-way for all other flights from Frankfurt, Brussels, and Berlin, giving you round-trip flights that start at $318 and $322.

All of the new flights from Toronto will start at about $153 one-way, with thrice-weekly flights to Berlin launching on June 9 of 2019, daily flights to Frankfurt launching on June 2 of 2019, and flights operating three to four times a week to Madrid launching on Aug. 16 of 2019.

Launch dates for each route will be the same from Boston and will operate three to four times a week to Madrid, and four times weekly to Berlin and Frankfurt starting at $149 one-way.

Finally, flights from Montreal to Frankfurt will operate thrice-weekly starting at about $153 one-way from July 16 of 2019.

Flights on the new routes will operate on Boeing 737 Max 9 aircraft, with tickets currently available for sale on Primera’s website.

The news comes after a recent announcement from Primera in August of new flights launching to Brussels, Belgium in 2019.

Flights to Brussels will operate daily from Newark at $149 one-way starting May 9 of 2019, from Boston four times a week at $149 one-way starting June 2 of 2019, and four times a week from Washington, D.C. at $199 one-way starting on June 2 of 2019.
