Pack Your Bags: WOW Air Is Offering $99 Flights to Europe

From April WOW Air will be flying from Dublin to JFK... for €130

Budget airline Wow Air has announced it is selling one-way flights from London Stansted to JFK International in NY for as low as £99 ($130).

WOW Air has just announced its latest U.S destination: the Big Apple. Flights now start at $99-one-way from JFK to popular European cities, including Paris, Frankfurt, Dublin, Copenhagen, Berlin, Amsterdam, and London.

Mogensen said that the focus for growth would remain on routes to North America, which now account for about 50 percent of its network, though four new A330-900neos to be leased next year could also offer routes to Asia.

The main downside is all flights have to go via Reykjavik in Iceland, rather than direct, and the no-frills airline charges customers extra for all the usual perks of a long-haul flight.

In a statement, CEO Skúli Mogensen said NY is "filled with culture, one-of-a-kind art, diverse cuisines and travelers" and that the airline is "excited to offer" low fares to more East Coast residents.

As the United Kingdom has the highest taxes on airfares in the world, the airline's £99 offering under the WOW Basic package works out £24 cheaper than the tax alone, it said.

Wow air Airbus A321-211 Winter in Central Park, New York City. "These low fares make a statement and allow our passengers to fly affordably". The airline is also offering "special prices" on a number of other routes in honor of the new JFK service, according to Thrillist.

WOW air now flies from Dublin to Newark, Boston, Washington DC, Montréal, Toronto, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, Pittsburgh, and Chicago.

Good news, New Yorkers - Iceland's low-priced airline, WOW Air, will be offering flights out of JFK beginning April 26, 2018.

Travelers can also book $99 one-way flights out of several other US cities the airline already operates out of, with return rates starting at $189.99 (return rates fluctuate depending on the date of travel).
