Brits who have been dreaming of exploring New York City but never had the budget could be in for a treat. Budget Icelandic airline, WOW is now offering flights from London’s Stansted Airport to New York’s JFK for as little as £99 one way!

The bargain tickets have been released to celebrate the airline’s new service from Stansted to JFK, and are said to cost less than the taxes the airline will need to pay, so essentially the flight is on them!

Be quick though, tickets are on sale now and for the first flights that will be departing in April 2018. But there’s just one catch – all flights will be stopping over in Reykjavik, Iceland meaning it will take slightly longer to reach NYC than if you were flying with an alternative airline.

When buying travel insurance for your trip to the city that never sleeps, it is worth noting that not all of them will cover for missed connecting flights. A connecting flight is separate to your outbound flight as it is caught within 12 hours of leaving your international departure point to enable you to reach your final destination.
If this route strikes your interest we recommend looking for a policy that will cover for missed connecting flights if your international departure is delayed. Without this cover, you could be left stranded in Iceland or out of pocket if you have to buy a new ticket.
