Transatlantic flights are some of the most costly flights you can take from the U.S. but that’s about to change. Wow Air, the budget airline from Iceland, is introducing fares from both Boston and Baltimore to Reykjavik, Iceland for as little as $99 each way. On top of that, they’re also offering one-stop flights from those same two U.S. cities to London and Copenhagen for $228 round trip.
“Paying even $200 for a one-way flight to, say, London, is unheard of. It just doesn’t exist.” – Tom Parsons, CEO of bestfares.com
You might think these incredibly low ticket prices are a scam but they’re real. The catch is they won’t last forever and even when they are available, you’ll be nickel and dimed for everything from seat choices, carry-on costs ($29), checked luggage ($50) and more.
Even if you account for all the added fees, the flights still come in much cheaper then the average cost of $600 for a round trip flight from Boston to Reykjavik, Iceland.
