Budget travelers, rejoice. WOW Air is bringing back its $69 one-way flights to Reykjavik, Iceland, for a limited-time only — including parts of summer and early fall travel.

As part of its latest promotion, WOW Air is offering $69 one-way flights from select US cities to Reykjavik (KEF). To book as part of this sale at reduced fares, you must be originating in any of the following cities: Baltimore (BWI), Chicago (ORD), Cleveland (CLE), Cincinnati (CVG), Detroit (DTW), New York (EWR and JFK), Dallas (DFW), St. Louis (STL), Pittsburgh (PIT), Boston (BOS), San Francisco (SFO) or Los Angeles (LAX).

In order to get the cheapest fares, travel must be completed between May 1-June 20, 2018, and September 1-October 27, 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 book, directly on

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. Check out what the WOW Air experience was like when TPG's Brendan Dorsey flew it and when Managing Editor Alberto Riva flew its biz product.
