Wow Air flies from Boston and ‘Washington DC’ (cough, Baltimore) to Reykjavik and beyond.
And their one-way fares really do start as low as $99 to Iceland, with connecting flights beyond an add-on price. The return flight starts at under $160.
Boston – Reykjavik is available at $99 during April, May, June and October.
$99 really is the all-in price for the outbound.
Return flights start at $164.39.
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.
