Shopping for a travel deal for spring break or Easter? Iceland’s ultra-low cost carrier WOW Air is back with a bargain basement deal that includes $69 (about P3,500) flights from the United States to Iceland, and $89 (about P4,500) deals to Europe.
The winter seat sale is for flights between Jan. 17 and April 24, and depart from the following U.S. airports: Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI), Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT), Newark International Airport (EWR), Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport (ORD).
One-way fares from the U.S. to Iceland are priced at $69 (P3,500).
Travelers looking to spend their spring break or Easter holiday in Europe can likewise fly one-way for $89 (P4,500) to cities like London (Gatwick), Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Brussels, Edinburgh, Dublin and Frankfurt. The offer is only good for 100 seats per flight leg, and is valid for return trips.
Meanwhile, budget newcomer Primera Air is the latest player in the transatlantic, no-frills market, and is currently offering non-stop, one-way flights from New York or Boston to Paris, London or Birmingham for $99 (about P5,000).
As with most budget carriers, beware the add-on ancillary fees for hand luggage and checked baggage, which can quickly inflate fares to more than double their original price. JB
