WOW Air is really their name, they’re a low cost carrier across the Atlantic and they made a splash back in October with introductory fares of $99-125 one-way.
Their flights from ‘Washington DC’ (Baltimore) and Boston to Reykjavik really are as low as $99, with the return flight less than $175. They offer connecting service on to London and Copenhagen well.
Their sale is back it seems.
There really are flights available at these prices. I plugged in a random date for Boston – Reykjavik.
And this really is the all-in, tax-inclusive pricing.
If you want to go to London rather than Iceland, be prepared to pay a little more.. but less than if you were flying another carrier. There are roundtrips available for under $450.
Note that the flights do not start until March 27 for the 6 weekly Boston – Reykjavik flights (with connecting service beyond Reykjavik) and until June 4 for Baltimore – Reykjavik.
They’re a low cost carrier, so expect fees or everything.
Here’s the charges for pre-assigned seating (left column for online payment, right for seat assignments at the airport).
You’ll pay for anything more than an 11 pound carry on. Checked bags are expensive — the first checked bag is $48 online in advance, $67 at check-in, and if you are forced to gate check that’s $95. That’s for non-stop service, bag fees are higher for connecting flights.
If you travel super light, and don’t especially care where you sit on the plane (and I don’t know what their seat pitch or legroom is like), you can get some pretty amazing fares for US-Europe travel without the need for a pricing glitch.
