Flash Sale: Wow Air announces $55 flights from LA, SFO, Miami to Europe

In celebration of Wow Air’s fifth anniversary, the ultra-budget airline today announced $55 one-way tickets from three US departures (Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Miami) to several European cities.

The tickets go on sale today, but there’s a catch: In order to score the cheap seats, you must fly this month — between June 11, 2017 and June 27, 2017.

Furthermore, sale tickets have limited availability and you must book a return journey, making it more difficult to find $55 seats both ways.

Book directly through Wow Air’s website.

Our tests

In our tests this morning, we easily found a $55 seat from Miami to Brussels (as with all Wow flights, via Reykjavik), but the cheapest return we could find for the journey was $249. Still, this brought the base fare up to $304, which is a great deal for summer travel to Europe.

Keep in mind, however, that prices can climb substantially when you add in additional charges, like checked luggage and reserved seats. (Read more about Wow’s extra charges and our guide to flying Wow Air.)
