Iceland is famous for Bjork and hot springs and gorgeous mountain vistas. And as of early next year, it’ll be one simple plane ride away. That’s because low-cost airline WOW, based in Iceland, has chosen BWI to be one of two airports offering direct flights to Reykjavik.
According to the Baltimore Sun, the round-trip flights will depart on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Connecting flights will take you on to Copenhagen or London. (Boston’s Logan Airport will have a similar flight offered, but who cares about them.) Poking around on WOW’s website, I found that flights next spring were already mostly booked up, but flights from Baltimore-Reykjavik in October were running around $525, while flights from Baltimore to Copenhagen were about $100 cheaper than that. There are apparently $99 transatlantic flights, according to WOW promotional materials — but those seem to have been snapped up pretty quickly, and I couldn’t find any.
There are catches, of course. You have to book way ahead, and you might pay as much as $38 — for a checked bag. Still, it’s probably worth it. Book away!
