WOW Air’s back this week with fantastic $99 one-way fares to Iceland, and some great connecting deals to elsewhere in Europe. As usual, flights will depart from Baltimore (BWI) and Boston (BOS) bound for Reykjavik, Iceland (KEF). Flights to Iceland start at $99, while flights to the other destinations — Copenhagen, London and Paris (with a short connection in Iceland) — will start at $149 one-way.
While flights departing the US start at $99, keep in mind that the the return flights are priced a bit higher, starting at $200 or more each way. The deals are available for travel between early November and mid-December.

WOW offers fares to Iceland from the US at this price point on a fairly regular basis, so it’s good to see more destinations being made available. For more on those options, check out our $99-Fare Guide to Iceland.
While there’s no doubt that these WOW fares are some of the cheapest around for travel to Europe, keep in mind that your journey won’t be as comfortable as it might be on other carriers, and there are many add-on fees that could eat into your savings. Generally, you’ll be fine if you know all the rules ahead of time, but at least consider whether the savings are worth the potential headache of (many) extra fees and basic onboard services.
