WOW air Announces $149 One-Way (East) North America - Tel Aviv

I don’t usually post here often anymore, but this is quite incredible.

WOW air has announced plans for a $149 one way flight from New York - Tel Aviv (via Reykjavik). This $149 ticket will also be available in other select destinations such as Toronto, Chicago, and Boston. A $199 ticket will also be available from San Fransisco and Los Angeles. This comes after announcing a Reykjavik - Tel Aviv route a earlier this year.

Other sources appreciated.

Glad to see you again.

People dont see international tickets this cheap these days.

It’s even cheaper than a flight from NBO-MBA.

I wonder what amenities are being lost with this cheaper ticket. I know Delta upgraded their JFK-TLV route from A332 if I am not mistaken to a B772 not to long ago. I wonder how other airlines will go about dealing with this. Another thing to note is the fact that a lay over in Reykjavik is needed, and we’ll certain people won’t want to wait with the stop over. I really wonder how this will perform in the long run.

I like this, it’s a smart move on the airline’s part. They’re banking on people not wanting to go 12-14 hours in one go, as well as offering dirt cheap fares to tempt more people to book. Not to mention other tourists that may want to visit Iceland on a stopover - so it’s a win-win for them all round I’d say.

#Update: Price does NOT include luggage allowance, seat selection, food, or drink.

Luggage allowance: $40-$50 possibly higher ($70) each way.
Seat Selection: $10, $40-$50 for extra legroom each way.

Nor does it include seat selection, so enjoy your middle seat for 6 hours at a time with a short rest at the middle of the night in KEF!

The layover is an hour and a half (at least for New York).

Has it ever been a 332? I’ve always thought it was a 772 only route…

Well International tickets are cheaper then they have ever been before if you take inflation into consideration

You have to pay for hand luggage with Wowair as well, don’t forget that. But then again for $149 I wouldn’t complain…

WOW Air was supposed to start another month But in the end she’ll just start working in September

Icelandair is also scheduled to open a line to Tel Aviv

In the past an A330 did operate on the route.
