Low-cost travelers will now have a new destination to visit out of Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport as WOW Air will offer service to Israel beginning at the end of the summer.
The Iceland-based airline announced the new service Monday with service to Ben Gurion Airport beginning Sept. 12 out of eight cities. One-way tickets out of BWI are on sale today and start at $149.
Flights will be offered four times a week in the beginning and connect through Reykjavik, Iceland, as all WOW Air flights to other countries do. The flights to Israel will be serviced by WOW Air’s new Airbus fleet.
Ben Gurion Airport is about 20 minutes from Tel Aviv and just over an hour to Jerusalem. WOW Air touts Tel Aviv’s beaches, nightlife and museums as reasons to visit the area.
