CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

WOW Air is the latest new airline to come to Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport.

The low-cost carrier will start flying to Iceland for $99 each way May 10. Flights to European destinations such as Paris and Dublin will cost about $149 each way - but there's a catch... a few of them.

The airline keeps ticket costs low by charging for a plethora of extras. You'll be paying more for carry-on luggage, extra leg room, food and drinks.

For example, their basic packages include a small personal item. If you want to bring a carry-on - be prepared to dish out some extra dough (unless you're OK with wearing the clothes on your back during your trip.) A carry on can weigh up to 26 pounds, and will add an additional cost of $39.99. If you wait to pay that cost until you get to the gate it jumps up to $69.99.

Traveling with a baby? Make sure you pack your baby carrier. A stroller, and any other special equipment, will cost $75.99. 

If you want to be a priority boarder, that tacks on $9.99.

Next - seat choices. A standard back seat runs $8.99, up front $9.99, XL leg room $39.99, and XXL legroom for $49.99. Mind you, this fee applies every time you switch planes. 

For example, booking a week long trip from Cincinnati to Dublin in May 2018 will cost $441.94 for their "basic" service that includes all the tickets, seats and one personal item. For $641.90, the same flight would also include a carry-on bag and a checked bag.

If you want to bump up your plans to their "biz" level, which gives you an in-flight meal, extra legroom, priority boarding, no fees for a carry-on and checked bag, and just in case you get cold feet about going, they throw in cancellation protection - but that'll cost you $801.84.
