There are deals to other European destinations, with a connection in Reykjavik. Let’s see where you can go!
What’s the Deal?
Link: WOW Air
Link: My Review of WOW Air
Link: My Iceland Trip ReportWOW Air is a low-cost airline based in Iceland. They’re no-frills, but they fly new airplanes and their crews are very friendly!
Flights from Boston and Washington, DC (Baltimore) to Reykjavik start at $99 1-way. But you’ll pay ~$170+ for your return journey, which is still a terrific deal!
You can also get a good deal to other cities in Europe (via Reykjavik):
- Amsterdam – ~$207
- Berlin – ~$207
- Copenhagen – ~$207
- Dublin – ~$199
- London – ~$212
- Paris – ~$207
- Stockholm – ~$210
I had a terrific experience flying WOW Air when I traveled to Iceland earlier this year. The service was fun, the plane was clean and new, and everyone was so friendly.
Keep in mind, WOW Air charges fees for seat selection, large carry-on bags, and checked bags. So this might not be as good a deal if you can’t travel light!

You can fly WOW Air from Boston and Washington, DC (Baltimore), to Reykjavik, Iceland, for $99 1-way. Or head to 7 other cities in Europe for ~$210.
I found a number of reasonably-priced return flights on WOW Air. Or use your miles & points for the trip home!
I don’t think these fares will last long, so book soon if you’re interested. And let me know if you plan a trip!
