Looking to take a quick European getaway on the cheap this year? Here's how.


Budget airline Wow Air is launching new flights out of several U.S. cities, including St. Louis and Cincinnati, this May and June, and they’re celebrating with $99 flights to Europe.

The airline is currently offering $99 one-way flights to its home base in Reykjavik, Iceland, with flights departing from a variety of U.S. cities that include Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dallas, Detroit, New York, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, and Washington, D.C. Besides St. Louis and Cincinnati, new routes include departures from Cleveland and Detroit, launching in April and May, respectively.

Besides the $99 fares to Iceland, travelers can also find flights to European hotspots like Amsterdam, London, Brussels, Dublin, Stockholm, and Frankfurt that start at just $149 one-way. Passengers can also book the $149 one-way flights out of Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Miami.

The deals are available for flight dates that vary throughout the year, with some options offering $99 flights as early as January and through September, while other flights are offering the lowest deals in October.

Since return flights start as low as $99 as well, you can snag a round-trip flight for under $200.

Passengers will want to note that Wow Air is a budget carrier, meaning the airline charges for amenities like selecting your seat or any food or beverage items served during a flight that can add to the overall cost of your trip.
