WOW air offering $69 flights from BWI to Iceland this summer, fall

That trip to Iceland you’ve been planning might have just become a bit more affordable.

Icelandic airline WOW is offering $69 one-way fares out of BWI/Marshall Airport to Reykjavik just in time for summer vacation.

Fares went on sale Tuesday and will be offered for flights from May 1 to June 20, and Sept. 1 to Oct. 27.

Be warned, the deal comes with some catches. For example, the first $69 fare I found was a 12:45 a.m. flight out of BWI in late May.

You may also want to pack lightly. While a personal item is included in the fare, a carry-on bag costs $39.99 and a checked bag costs $49.99. You also have to pay the fees again for your return flight.

Speaking of return flights, those fares are higher than for tickets out of Baltimore. The cheapest return fare was $99.99 on June 15. A more reasonable return ticket on June 6 or June 8 costs $119.99. A return flight could cost as much as $279.99 if you return on June 11.

Taxes and fees for a trip from May 29 to June 8 totaled $95.38.…
