Need another reason for an escapade from work? Apart from Norwegian Air—who has launched direct flights from London to Singapore at just US$200—a second airline has debuted budget-friendly flights this year.
WOW Air has announced that it’s offering one-way flights from London Stansted to New York’s JFK International for as low as £99 (US$130)—which is even cheaper than its taxes.
The airline adds that it is “essentially paying for passengers to fly.”
Founder Skúli Mogensen says, “We are proud to constantly be lowering fares across the Atlantic, enabling more people to fly in our brand new aircraft and to experience the world… These low fares make a statement and allow our passengers to fly affordably.”
The fares are now available for the new route, which will commence in April 2018. It does, however, have a catch: the flight makes a layover in scenic Reykjavik, Iceland—although you wouldn’t exactly call it a gripe, would you?
