WOW air is starting trips to Iceland from Orlando on December 18, 2018.
The low-cost airline made the announcement on Wednesday, September 5, 2018, according to the orlandosentinel.com.
The flights, three days a week from December to April, will take passengers from Orlando International Airport to Keflavík International Airport, about 30 miles from the Icelandic capital of Reykjavík, company spokeswoman Anna Romano said in a statement.
The airline is offering an introductory rate of $99 one way on certain dates when passengers book a round-trip to Keflavík; $149 one-way tickets as part of round-trip journeys to London, Frankfurt, Edinburgh, Dublin, Paris, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Brussels, Berlin, or Amsterdam; and $399 tickets to New Delhi. All those flights would have a layover in Keflavík.
Sound like a great deal there’s just a small catch, you won’t be able to bring your whole wardrobe along with you.
Those fares do not include checked bags or carry-on luggage. Travelers can bring a small personal item, which can be 17 by 13 by 10 inches and up to 22 pounds, or pay more for a ticket that does allow for a checked bag and carry-on.
But what’s taking a few least things along with you when you have the opportunity to travel far and wide at an economical rate. WOW air low-cost flights are making it possible for people who never thought it was possible for them to travel the globe.
“WOW’s ability as an international low-cost carrier helps open doors for more business and leisure travel between Orlando and the world,” Greater Orlando Aviation Authority CEO Phil Brown said in a statement Wednesday.
Think about it, in a few short months you can be on your way to Europe — what a Christmas present that would make! So pack the essentials and get it while it’s hot because an opportunity like this might not be available forever.
