Flights from California to Europe for $69? A trans-Atlantic fare war could be brewing as airlines that already offer some of the cheapest tickets between North America and Europe get set to do battle.

Icelandic discount carrier WOW rolled out $69.99 one-way fares on Tuesday for its flights from Los Angeles and San Francisco to four destinations in Europe.

The fares – good for flights from Jan. 15 through April 5 – are now being sold on connecting itineraries to Stockholm; Copenhagen; Bristol, England; and Edinburgh, Scotland. WOW billed the fares as “its lowest airline prices yet” for customers flying between California and Europe.
