WOW Air started to bring their low cost service to the US last year and they offer an incredible way to get to Iceland (and more of Europe) on the cheap.
Fly To Europe For As Little As $99 With WOW Air
Their cheap $99 fares are back again for the next several months. The $99 is only available from Boston and Baltimore to Reykjavik. The return can be had for $135 to make a total, roundtrip price of $234 for travel to Iceland.
Not only is Iceland on sale, but you can also fly to other destinations in Europe that are served by WOW starting at $149 (these flights will connect in Iceland).

In addition to Reykjavik, you can also fly to these cities:
- London (Gatwick)
Iceland is absolutely beautiful and it is a short flight, especially when you consider you are flying to Europe. It takes between 4.5 – 5 hours to fly from Boston to Reykjavik. That is shorter than flying from NY to LA! While many people like to travel internationally in premium cabins, on such a short flight for such a great price, it is a really nice deal to go with this.
I have yet to fly WOW Air but plan on doing it at some point just to be able to report back on how it was. Remember, they do charge for various parts of the normal routine from other airlines – seat assignments, checked baggage, carry-on bags over a certain weight, etc. To see a list of prices and what they charge for, check here.
Off-Peak Time – Still Great
These $99 fares are available out of either Boston or Baltimore to Reykjavik and are available for travel between October and March, 2016. Yes, that is winter in Iceland but if I were going to be someplace during winter months, I would choose to go to Iceland. Not only is that the time when the Northern Lights are present but it is such a beautiful country already that the snow just adds another special perspective to it.
Booking Cheap Travel
To book these tickets, head over to WOW Air’s site and simply start your search. You can search by flexible dates as well to make sure you are getting the lowest possible price around your preferred travel dates. When you are done, just go to checkout and you are set!
Iceland is a beautiful country. I got to spend just a couple of days there when I ran the Reykjavik Marathon and it was enough for me to know I want to head back there again someday! With the short distance to the East Coast of the US, it is an ideal location for a long weekend (especially since it is only 4 hours ahead of ET). With prices like this, even though there are extra fees for what we may normally find free, it is worth taking a look. But don’t wait too long!
