If you have been thinking about getting one of those really cheap flights to Europe but haven’t pulled the trigger, fear not because you haven’t missed your chance. Now WOW air is offering $69 one-way fares from six United States cities to eight European cities…because $99 one-way just isn’t cheap enough!
There is a little bit of a catch in that to get the cheapest $69 outbound flight, you also have to book a return flight. The returns I checked are not $69, but they seemed to start at about $149. This brings your round trip total to about $218 if you don’t add any extras liked checked bags or seat assignments.
The reduced WOW rates are from these US cities:
- Boston (BOS)
- Washington, D.C. (BWI)
- Pittsburgh (PIT)
- Los Angeles (LAX)
- San Francisco (SFO)
- Miami (MIA)
The reduced rate destinations in Europe are:
- Paris (CDG)
- Brussels (BRU)
- Stockholm (ARN)
- Dublin (DUB)
- Berlin (SXF)
- London (LGW)
- Copenhagen (CPH)
- Edinburgh (EDI)
You will be connecting through Iceland, which may or may not make this a better or worse deal to you. The reduced one-way fares will be offered for flights departing September through November 2017 with 200 discounted seats reportedly available on each eligible flight.
To give an idea as to what the extra fees are beyond one personal item, you are looking at $39.99 each way for a carry-on bag and $8.99 – $49.99 on each segment if you need a pre-assigned seat. In other words, this is only dirt cheap if you don’t care about where you sit and can pack lightly. If you meet those criteria, then have at it and go explore some of my favorite European cities for a very fair price!
