While many airlines have talked about low budget transatlantic travel, WOW Air have just got on with it. The good news is, their much sought after $99 Boston to Reykjavik fare is now back, with (at the time of writing) wide availability in April, May and June 2015.
Fares for the return leg are not available at $99, but they are as low as $164.39, putting an all-in Boston to Reykjavik return at $263.39.

Iceland-based WOW Air recently made a stir by offering some short-lived $99 fares. However, some fares are almost back at these levels. WOW’s pricing is incredibly dynamic and, at the time of writing, it is offering one-way fares between Boston and Iceland (KEF) at a very impressive $119.
While you will need to be flexible with your dates, that puts all-in return fares as low as $298. They may be a budget carrier, but both the $119 one way and $298 return fares are exceptional value.
The $119 fare is currently available on 14/21/28 April, and 5/12/19/26 May.
