I’m a sucker for cheap flights. Even though everyone I know hates one of the most well known budget airlines here in the states, Spirit Airlines, I’m actually OK with them – as long as I know what I am getting into. So you can imagine that I was quite intrigued by the constant advertisements of WOW Air’s super cheap flights to Europe. On our recent trip to Ireland we decided to forgo our normal direct flight into Dublin to give it a go and see if it’s worth the savings or not.
Haven’t heard of WOW Air? It is Iceland’s star budget airline providing low-fares for long-haul flights, all with a connection in Iceland’s capital Reykjavik. The airline was founded in November 2011 and currently serves 38 destinations across Europe, North America, and Asia. Their bright pink planes are cheerful on the inside and out with cute sayings throughout the cabin to keep you smiling. But the question is, are their low fares really worth the savings? Read on to find out about our recent experience.
