WOW Air has been in the news quite a bit over the past week or so.  After Icelandair announced introduction of direct flights from Cleveland to Reykjavik, WOW responded by announcing direct flights to Iceland from Cleveland and 3 other Midwest cities.

Now I’m seeing $69 fares to Europe on WOW’s fare deal site.  I don’t see any from Cleveland, Cincinnati or any of the newly announced seats, but there is plenty of availability throughout the summer, fall and beyond from several cities

Book! These fares don’t last long! Many dates may not be available, but the WOW calendar is showing these as the sale months.  Here is one example from Washington DC (BWI) to Brussels

Remember too that you can have a stopover of any length in Reykjavik on your way to/from Europe if you book a roundtrip ticket, though prices may change – in a brief moment of looking I could not find any $69 fares if you included a stopover

WOW Carry-on policy

WOW Air recently changed its carry-on policy. A normal carry-on bag is now $51 and a checked bag is $71. If you need a seat assignment, it will cost you at least $8 to $13 each way. Despite all the fees, the fares may still make a lot of sense.

Keep in mind that the $69 ticket is only available one-way to Europe. Getting back to the U.S. from Europe is typically $200 to $300 one way. 

Are you taking advantage of these one-way fares?
