Budget airline Wow Air has announced it is selling one-way flights from London Stansted to JFK International in NY for as low as £99 ($130).

This does mean that your journey time is slightly longer, although you've got plenty of spare change leftover from the low-priced ticket that you could spend in the airport bar.

Dollars 99 one-way tickets from JFK will go on sale today for passengers looking to travel to Paris, Amsterdam, London Stansted, Frankfurt, Dublin, Copenhagen and Berlin.

The fares are now on sale for the new route beginning April 2018, although there is a slight catch - all of the flights have to go via Reykjavik in Iceland.

In 2014, Norwegian Air introduced one-way deals to NY for £149.

CEO and founder of WOW air, Skúli Mogensen, said in a statement: "We are proud to constantly be lowering fares across the Atlantic, enabling more people to fly in our brand-new aircraft and to experience the world".
