WOW Air is bringing back its famous $69 one-way flights to Iceland. As part of this promotion, you can find one-way fares from select US cities to Reykjavik, Iceland (KEF) from $69.99 one-way, and to a number of European destinations from $89.99 one-way.

To book as part of this sale at reduced fares, you must be originating in any of the following US cities: Baltimore (BWI), Pittsburgh (PIT), Newark (EWR), Boston (BOS), San Francisco (SFO) or Chicago (ORD). As mentioned, the cheapest one-way fares are to Reykjavik (KEF) for $69.99. However, the following cities are also eligible for reduced fares, starting at $89.99:

  • London (LGW)
  • Amsterdam (AMS)
  • Copenhagen (CPH)
  • Brussels (BRU)
  • Edinburgh (EDI)
  • Dublin (DUB)
  • Frankfurt (FRA)

In order to get the cheapest fares, travel must be completed between January 17 and April 24, 2018. There’s no telling how long these fares will be around, so it’ll be better to book sooner rather than later. Note that we’re only finding the cheapest fares on round-trip tickets — not one-way.

Here are some examples of what you can purchase:

Baltimore (BWI) to Reykjavik (KEF) for $190 round-trip:

Boston (BOS) to Reykjavik (KEF) for $190 round-trip:

 

Newark (EWR) to Amsterdam (AMS) for $240 round-trip:

Pittsburgh (PIT) to Frankfurt (FRA) for $267 round-trip:

San Francisco (SFO) to Reykjavik (KEF) for $350 round-trip:

Keep in mind that WOW Air is a low-cost carrier, meaning you’ll pay fees for things that are usually free. Fees you’ll pay range from meals to seat assignments to checked baggage and more. So, while the fare may seem too good to pass up, keep in mind that if you want to customize your trip, you’ll have to pay even more.
