Flights from Ireland to a number of major US and Canadian cities could cost as little as €100 this winter.
Thanks to new routes from budget airlines such as Norwegian Air and WOW air fares for transatlantic flights have become far more affordable.
WOW recently announced that a one-way flight from Ireland to the US would start from €99.99.
That includes destinations such as New York, LA, Boston, Chicago in the US and Toronto and Montréal in Canada.
The flights to North America are via Iceland’s capital Reykjavik.
WOW Air flights to Reykjavik have also dropped in price and a one way ticket will cost just €39.99.
Svanhvít Fridriksdóttir, Director of Communications at WOW air, said: “We are delighted to be able to continue to offer even lower fares to our Irish passengers, giving them the chance to visit Iceland or tick a bucket list city in North America off their travel list.
“The low fares are the perfect excuse to book that dream shopping trip to New York just in time for Christmas or escape the winter and fly to sunny LA or Orlando.”
The offer is available for booking until 23.59 tomorrow night (Friday 21st) and covers flights from 1st October 2018 to 31st January 2019.
