WOW air Announces New Route From The US To India Via Iceland

Delhi is regarded as one of the most full-on travel experiences on the planet

A one-way ticket to Iceland, US, Canada and London in the economy category -WOW basic - will start from Rs 13,499, including taxes, while the business class fares on - WOW premium - will be priced from Rs 46,599 onwards including taxes.

The Icelandic budget airline WOW air has announced it will start direct flights between Iceland and Delhi in India on December 6.

"The India-US nonstop takes the polar route that overflies Iceland". Addressing the doubts that whether the low prices are here to stay, Chief Executive Officer Skuli Mogensen assured that these fares aren't just an introductory offer. The "Wow basic" one-way fare includes all taxes but excludes meals and check-in baggage, said an NDTV report quoting PTI.

WOW air will be the second European airline in the world to deploy the most modern long-haul aircraft, the Airbus A330neo, for the route from New Delhi.

This winter, Wow is scheduled to fly from Reykjavik to the US cities of Newark, Boston, Baltimore, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Detroit, San Francisco, Los Angeles and St. Louis.


Besides, the airline said that it will offer 4 fare options - WOW basic, WOW plus, WOW comfy and WOW premium.

However, the airline CEO Mogensen said the fare could go up depending upon factors, "though the high cannot be three to five times".

The airline on its website has claimed that travelling to NY with a couple of hours stop-over at Reykjavik would take about 20 hours. Skúli Mogensen, the owner and CEO of WOW air has previously said that Asia is a major future growth market for the airline.

Mr Mogensen said he was optimistic about the success of the airline in India. "Fares can absorb the rising crude oil prices unless it breaches the Dollars 100 mark", he told PTI.

Wow's launch of India operations coincides with efforts of the union and state governments to make air travel more affordable and accessible to all by developing more airports and waiving off taxes, airport charges and other levies and under the regional connectivity scheme. Besides, 80 per cent of them travel with a stop over, he said.
