No Frills of the Day: WOW Air Sale (up to 36% Discount on Base Fare)


Today’s No Frills of the Day goes to WOW air, Iceland’s second largest airline, and their promo sale (with up to 36% discount on base fare) valid for (almost) all their published fares.

You can access WOW Air website here.

We have discussed before WOW Air no-frills ultra cheap one-way and round trip fares between Europe and the United States (via KEF). Here are some examples of the cheaper fares they are selling right now:

They are currently running a promo sale valid for travel from August 20 through February 10, 2108. Entering the promo code WOWSALE when booking gets you a discount of up to 36% on the base fare of your ticket. All bookings must be made by 11:59pm GMT, August 8.

The catch: The discount does not apply to their cheapest fares ($99 to KEF, $149 between USA and Europe). Any other fare is game. For example, BRU-KEF on October 19 is $149 and it does not get any discount when applying the code:

But on October 18, a $189 fare is discounted to $146 using the promo code:

Booking example with discount applied on both segments of a round trip ticket:


As I have mentioned before, WOW Air are excellent fares if you’re looking for a positioning flight to start a mileage run accross the Atlantic Ocean. The discount does not work on their cheapest fares but it brings higher fares to the level of the cheap ones.

WOW Air fares are non-refundable and, as every other low cost carrier, usually implies costly change fees + fare difference, so book only if travel plans are final.
