WOW Air Is Coming to JFK and Will Offer $99 Flights to Europe
Paris, Amsterdam, London Stansted, Frankfurt, Dublin, Copenhagen and Berlin—here we come!
WOW Air is beginning service to New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport in 2018, and that means one thing: More cheap flights to Europe.
Today, $99 one-way fares are going on sale from JFK to Paris, Amsterdam, London Stansted, Frankfurt, Dublin, Copenhagen and Berlin.
Flights make one stop in Reykjavik, Iceland, which is great for a stopover if travelers have the time. The cheap flights from New York City's JFK will begin on April 28, 2018.
The airline is also offering $99 one-way flights from more airports as part of the new service announcement. The cheap fares are only available with a round-trip purchase; return fares start at $189.99.
- From Newark (EWR), Cleveland (CLE) and Cincinnati (CVG) to Paris (CDG), Amsterdam (AMS), London (STN), Frankfurt (FRA), Dublin (DUB), Copenhagen (CPH) and Berlin (SXF) via Iceland.
- Miami (MIA) to Paris (CDG), Amsterdam (AMS), Dublin (DUB) and Copenhagen (CPH) via Iceland.
- Boston (BOS) and Pittsburgh (PIT) to Paris (CDG), Amsterdam (AMS), London (STN), Brussels (BRU), Dublin (DUB), Copenhagen (CPH) and Edinburgh (EDI) and Stockholm (ARN) via Iceland.
“We are excited to offer more East Coast passengers access to high-value and low fares through our new partnership with John F. Kennedy International Airport,” Skúli Mogensen, founder and CEO of WOW air, said in a statement. “WOW air's young fleet continues to service U.S. consumers at a reasonable price to make travel available to even more people.”
In the past couple of years, increased competition from low-cost carriers has made travel to Europe more affordable than ever.
Because this is a low-cost carrier, however, passengers need to pay extra attention to any and all extra fees. WOW Air charges for services like booking through a phone call (instead of the website), flight changes, anything but minimal baggage, seat assignment, and on-board meals.
Travelers who avoid extra fees can score a very cheap trip to Europe.
