SMADE WASHINGTON DC | Yup you’re seeing right and it’s not just an illusion. WOW Air a low-cost carrier base in Iceland is launching $99 promotion fares from Boston-Logan International Airport to Europe. WOW founded in 2011 and begun operating 2012. WOW currently operates 3 single class configured A320 aircraft with 180 seats. The airline is base at Keflavík International Airport in Reykjavik, Iceland and operates to 15 European destination and set to launch flights to U.S Cities such as Boston and Washington D.C. Service to Boston-Logan is set to begin March 2015 followed by Washington D.C – Baltimore–Washington International Airport in June 2015.

For their service to the United States; WOW air is launching special promotion that will get you into Europe from Boston and Washington connecting through the airlines hub at Keflavik International Airport. However these fare was quickly sold-out. As of 3:00am this morning(Qct. 25 2014) WOW listed price for a trip to London from Boston will cost you $273 one way. Washington D.C to London $195 one way; $506 Round-trip + $67 per check bag and $3 to $24 per seats + $38 for any carry on luggage that exceed 12kg – These fare are for September 7 – September 9 2015. My final total for my Round Trip from Washington D.C to London $667 that $161 worth of Extra. That is before we get to the airport.

WOW introductory fares are too help promote its new routes. As of 9:30 pm ET on Wednesday (Oct. 22 2014), WOW was offering flights to Copenhagen and London for $228 round trip (including taxes). It was the lowest price flight between destination.  Make sure you check each day for a good fare that your willing to pay. WOW Air doesn’t plan on making these low fares available every day. The airline said it plans to operate these route seasonally.

WOW founder and CEO Skúli Mogensen spoke about his carrier’s future in North America.

“We are proud to set the pace for low-cost transatlantic travel,”Says  Mogensen “From our first day of operations, my dream has been to connect North America and Europe through Iceland. I am confident we will expand to other cities and build a robust air service across the Atlantic.”

Wow air is the latest low-cost carrier operating between Europe and the USA! With Norwegian Long Haul 787 Dreamliner service between the USA and Europe including routes between New York-JFK and London-Gatwick, offering a direct flight on a newer state of the art commercial airliner and similar pricing. We wonder how will WOW stack up once it promo fare starts to not be so promo. Transatlantic Low cost low haul service is becoming a thing. With WestJet looking to enter this market between Canada and Europe using Boeing 767-300ER wide-body and Ryan Air looking to jump in the pot of low-cost long haul transatlantic flight. Will this make it easier for passengers to get long haul service at a decent price. How will big carriers like United British Airways and Delta take these low-cost carriers. Lufthansa is also looking to join in on the fun.

I compare United Airlines and Wow air for travel between Washington D.C and London. United cost me $1600 and yes Economy Class; Even thought United is getting me there quicker, with a meal and a straight flight. In the end what matters to you? comfort, hassle free, fastest, cheapest? yes you obviously pay less on WOW, but how do I  know what else they will charge me once i reach the airport.  Regardless where your traveling too if you don’t care which airline you fly with; always do your full research because less some can sometimes mean more.
