Low-cost carrier WOW Air has some seriously wow prices right now as they are set to launch service from US destinations Boston and Washington DC (actually BWI) to Reykjavik. If you don’t want to go to Iceland (and what is wrong with you?), then this can still be super interesting because you can continue on to Europe.
These prices will not last, but right now are as hot as Washington DC (actually BWI) – London (via Reykjavik) for $99 USD one-way. That is an all-in real price including taxes. You can seriously fly from the United States to London for less than $100 one-way with no miles required! Getting back from London does cost a bit more, largely due to taxes. Taxes on flights back from Iceland are a good bit less.
Hurry if you want in on this from Baltimore or Boston to Iceland or on to London – Gatwick or Copenhagen because the lowest prices will not last. The only way I found the prices was to check dates one at a time, but it didn’t take too long to find an available date, so they are still there. The flights from Boston start in March 2015 and the flights in from Baltimore (which they call Washington DC) start in June 2015.
This is a low-cost carrier, so be ready to pay extra for everything from larger carry-ons, to checked bags, to seat assignments, etc. However, if you don’t care what your seat is and can pack (very) light for your trip, then you really can get there for less than $100 USD!
