WOW Air, the Icelandic budget airline, is offering flights to Reykjavik for $89 and to more European cities for $99. These are one way fares going to Europe only, and return flights will range from $189-249 depending on flight/date/time.
You can book directly on the WOW Air website.
- New York
These are some of the destination for the lowest price:
- Reykjavik ($89)
- Amsterdam ($99)
- Brussels ($99)
- Edinburgh ($99)
- Copenhagen ($99)
- Dublin ($99)
- Frankfurt ($99)
WOW Air charges for almost everything, so make sure you go over their list of fees before booking. You’re only allowed a free carry-on item (17x13x10 in./22 lbs), which is very very small. You’ll have to pay for a carry-on bag and checked luggage.
Seat assignment will also cost you, $9.99-$10.99. Check out the full list of fees and charges here.
These are some great prices, but you must book a return leg as well so make sure you check prices and see if it makes sense for you. I didn’t really check much since I wanted to put this out before the seats are gone. From a quick look round-trip prices should be a bit over $300, which is pretty good for summer travel to Europe.
Don’t forget to use a credit card that will give you the most points, such as Amex Platinum (5x on airfare) or Chase Sapphire Reserve (3x on travel) or Citi Prestige (3x on airfare). You can also use travel credit from your Citi Prestige or the Chase Sapphire Reserve.
