You Can Book A $99 Flight From The U.S. To Paris Right Now!
$99 one-way airfares from the U.S. to Europe may sound too good to be true but, today with WOW Air, that price is very real thanks to a sale on their newest routes to Paris and Amsterdam.
Just announced today, Icelandic airline WOW Air will begin flights from Boston and Baltimore-Washington International Airport to Paris and Amsterdam on October 1, 2015. From Boston, WOW will fly to Amsterdam three times a week and to Paris six days a week. From BWI, WOW will fly to Amsterdam two times a week and to Paris five times a week.
These flights will be operated by Airbus A321 aircraft to Reykjavik-Keflavik Airport in Iceland, where travelers will connect and continue on to Paris or Amsterdam. WOW, which launched its US website in fall 2014 and began low-fare flights from the U.S. last March, is famous for its $99 deals. WOW already operates its connecting flight service from Boston and BWI to Copenhagen, London (Gatwick), Dublin, and Berlin.
Fare specials advertised at $99 include taxes, fees, and a carry-on allowance of 5kg (11lbs) or less. WOW’s status as an ultra-low-cost airline means their flight prices are “unbundled” and passengers must pay extra for additional luggage allowance, checked bags, in-flight meals, extra legroom, and even seat assignments. Check out our look at the airline’s history and newest aircraft.
Having flown WOW—read a recent review—we like their new A321 interiors (with under-seat power outlets, but no on-demand entertainment), smiling cabin crew, affordable fares that save money for spending at the destination, and the particularly Icelandic quirks that set them apart (think mustaches printed on the mirrors in the bathrooms). On the other hand, the airline’s restrictive carry-on bag policy—each passenger is allowed only one bag, no additional “personal item”—and pre-dawn layover in Reykjavik before any airport facilities open can make it a more frustrating experience.
Although the airline is new to the U.S., WOW has been flying between Iceland and Europe since 2011 and is completely in line with international safety, training, and maintenance standards. The old adage of “you get what you pay for” is only true in that a $99 flight on WOW does involve the earlier mentioned mild inconveniences along the way. For $99 to Paris to Amsterdam, however, it’s hard to complain.
To get these deals, visit WOW Air’s U.S. website and book as soon as possible, for travel from October through December 2015 and January through March 2016.
