The official statement from the airline read;
So it looks like Primera Air has gone bankrupt, which means my eldest daughter and her new husband are stuck in Paris trying to get home to Toronto from their honeymoon. Anyone know if @AirCanada or anyone else is doing anything to help stranded passengers?— Mathew Ingram (@mathewi) October 1, 2018
We have learned this afternoon that @primeraair has ceased all flight operations and will go into administration at midnight tonight. Passengers due to travel with Primera Air are advised not to travel to the airport and instead contact the airline directly. Thank you. pic.twitter.com/0o6kNgn0ZD— London Stansted Airport (@STN_Airport) October 1, 2018
@British_Airways I am Cabin Crew for Primera Air and they’ve left us stranded in Toronto. If I go to the desk with my ID will anybody be able to help? I just wanna go home! 😭— loz ☺️ (@cocoflvr) October 1, 2018
Passengers who are looking to obtain a refund for unused tickets “will need to contact the company directly” — but as I highlighted earlier, for now…this remains impossible. https://t.co/Xc9mrPi9lu— Alex Macheras (@AlexInAir) October 2, 2018
