Nabbing the best airfares is a dark art at the best of times, but going to press, one-way fares from Dublin to Reykjavik were available from €49.

The seats are being offered by WOW Air on its new route, which it says is the first ever direct scheduled flight between Ireland and Iceland.

As we publish, €49 fares are available on June 4, 16, 25 and 30 on wowair.ie.

An online "payment fee" of €8.98 brings the one-way fare to €57.98.

Unless you plan on staying in Iceland, however, you'll also have to stump up for the return fare. That's not so cheap - with the best available rate from Reykjavik to Dublin in June starting from €121.30 (June 4).

WOW Air's flights will depart three-times weekly - on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. The highest quoted prices are €224.56 one-way.

The airline is also offering flights from Dublin Airport to Boston, with a stopover in Reykjavik, from €198 each way.

That price is based on an October 6 departure.

By contrast, Aer Lingus's lowest one-way fare from Dublin to Boston in June is €309.51 (with the return leg from €268).

WOW Air also quotes one-way fares to Washington DC from €200 in June, though they rise to a whopping €747.50 on other dates.

NB: All prices subject to availability/change.
