WOW Air

Iceland’s low-cost carrier is expanding service in the spring between Reykjavik and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. To celebrate, WOW air is offering $99 tickets from Pittsburgh to Paris, Amsterdam, London, Brussels, Dublin, Copenhagen, Edinburgh and Stockholm.

Things to know:
The $99 fare is only good one-way. Return tickets start at $249. As with most low-cost airlines, the $99 essentially covers just you. A carry-on bag, a checked bag and selecting your seat ahead of time cost extra. There are also fees for meals and drinks.

Southwest Airlines

Pittsburghers can fly nonstop to Cancun, Mexico, on Southwest Airlines beginning June 9. Cancun will be the 18th destination served by Southwest at Pittsburgh International.

Things to Know:
Southwest’s Cancun service will only run from June 9 through Aug. 4. Delta, American, Apple Vacations and Vacations Express also offer service from Pittsburgh to Cancun, so it pays to compare fares before booking.

Spirit Airlines

Discount carrier Spirit Airlines is launching seasonal service from Pittsburgh to Fort Myers and Tampa. Spirit also offers nonstop service to Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Myrtle Beach, Las Vegas, Dallas/Fort Worth and Los Angeles.

Things to Know:
While Spirit’s base fares are very cheap, the airline charges for everything extra, including carry-on luggage and extra legroom. The airline also has been plagued by poor customer service rankings. In May, the airline refunded passengers $18 million after it cancelled hundreds of flights because of a labor dispute with pilots.
