WOW Air Is Adding Cheap Flights To Europe from Dallas

WOW Air is steadily growing their flights from the the U.S. with a new flight out of Dallas, Texas. The low cost airlines first U.S. destination was Boston in March 2015, and since then they’ve added flights to Baltimore, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Newark, Miami, Pittsburgh, and Chicago. They also added Midwest flights out of Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit, and St. Louis, in the spring of 2018. This will really step up international flights with the no-frills airline WOW Air which will serve a dozen cities to a gateway in Europe.

As of May 24, 2018, WOW Air will offer three weekly flights from Dallas Ft. Worth Airport. The schedule for the flight will be as follows:

WW191 Reykjavik to Dallas departing 9:30PM arriving 12:45AM [Mon, Wed, Fri]
WW192 Dallas to Reykjavik departing 4:10PM arriving 4:45AM (+1 day) [Tue, Thu, Sat]
The flight time is 8hr15min westbound and 7hr35min eastbound.

WOW Air’s Dallas service will be operated by one of their A330s. Unlike most of their US destinations, Dallas can’t be served with one of their narrowbody aircraft, due to the distance of the flight being ~3,750 miles each way.

As of now the cheapest WOW Air fares were seeing from Dallas to Iceland are ~$169 one-way, based on a roundtrip purchase. This is incredible for a roundtrip to Europe normally priced around $1,000. Although, USA Today is reporting flights as low as $99 each way. Keep in mind that the flight lands in Dallas at 12:45AM, which isn’t an especially convenient time. It is also a no-frills airline so expect to pay for bags like you do with American and pay for seat upgrades like you do with American. Ok, so no one is a frills airline anymore. You will pay for food but bring on your own food for this good of a deal!

WOW Air is useful if your final destination is Iceland or if you’re traveling to Western Europe. They offer connections to over a dozen destinations in Europe, so they’re a cheap way to fly from the US to Western Europe with a stop.

Our Take: DFW tends to be immune to any fare sales, hopefully some transatlantic competition will help this. While many will not think about flying WOW airlines, we’re happy that AA is going to have some new non-stop flight pressure at DFW.
