WOW Air’s entrance into the US market in recent years has been quite wowing with its regular too-good-to-be-true deals on flights to Europe from major U.S. gateways.
That latest promo offers $69 one-way fares (based on a roundtrip purchase) for flights through November heading to Brussels, Stockholm, Dublin, Berlin, Paris, London, Copenhagen and Edinburgh from Boston (BOS), Washington D.C. (BWI), Pittsburg (PIT), Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO) and Miami (MIA).
The catch is the fare must be purchased as a roundtip ticket for travel starting and ending before the end of November – and is only available on 200 to 400 seats, depending on the U.S. gateway.
WOW is expanding its North American growth by offering new flight services from formerly flyover destinations in the American midwest: Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW), Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE), Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) and St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL). All these gateways will get direct flights to Europe via Keflavik International Airport (KEF) in Iceland. The addition of these four cities brings the number of WOW air destinations in the Midwest to five. Earlier this year, WOW air began service to Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport (ORD). These four additions will bring the airline’s total number of U.S. destinations to 12 since its North American launch at Boston Logan International Airport in March 2015.
Service from Detroit, Cleveland, Cincinnati and St. Louis to Iceland will be available four days per week with service onwards to WOW air’s European destinations. Flights from those four new destinations to Iceland are available from $99 one-way including taxes. One-way fares to WOW air’s additional locations from the Midwest, including London, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Frankfurt, Dublin, Copenhagen will be starting at $149 when they commence in 2018. The inaugural flights are as follows:
- Detroit on April 26
- Cleveland on May 4
- Cincinnati will be May 10
- St. Louis on May 17
The good news is that all through-flights to mainland Europe stop in Iceland and passengers get the advantage of a stopover for as long as they wish – a two vacation variation on a typical flight to Europe.
