(NEW YORK) -- Could your overseas flight soon cost less than your baggage fees?
Icelandic airline WOW Air announced this week its plan to offer flights from the U.S. to Europe for only $99.
The carrier is taking advantage of the growing sector of budget travelers, catered to by low cost airlines, which generally skimp on traditional amenities in order to pass savings on to customers.
The one-way flights are limited to a few cities at the onset: Boston and Washington, D.C., with transatlantic flights to Iceland, London and Copenhagen, Denmark.
WOW said the deep budget flights could become available as soon as March 2015. Still, many fliers have already secured reservations to fly next year.
