WOW air has launched the latest transatlantic flash sale from Dublin, with one-way tickets to nine North American destinations from €99.99.

The fares are available to Boston, Washington DC, Pittsburgh, New York, Chicago, Montréal and Toronto, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

WOW's flights from Dublin involve a stopover in Reykjavík, with meals, seat selection and bags (starting from €31.99 each-way) all charged as extra.

The sale prices are available online (wowair.ie) for travel between November 1 and December 13... perfect for pre-Christmas shopping, if thats your bag.

WOW flies five times weekly between Dublin and Reykjavík (from €39.99 each-way) but will suspend its service between Cork and Iceland this month due to low demand.

Last week, Icelandair announced that it would join WOW on the Dublin route, launching a six-times weekly service from May 2018.

Air routes are mushrooming between Ireland and North America, with Norwegian already offering a €99 sale this summer, and Aer Lingus adding new direct flights to Philadelphia from March 2018 - with several new aircraft on order to continue its transatlantic expansion.

This summer, it launched a new €169 "unbundled" fare offering.

WOW air plans to launch five new US destinations from Dublin in 2018, including Detroit, Cleveland, Cincinnati, St Louis and Dallas.
