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

Delhi is part of the Golden Triangle which includes the Taj Mahal

WOW Air is expanding to Asia, launching routes from nine different US cities to Delhi, India, via Iceland, with fares starting at $199 one-way.

Established in November 2011 by Icelandic entrepreneur Skúli Mogensen, the purple airline flies with Airbus A320, Airbus A321 and Airbus A330 models.

The 's founder and CEO, Skuli Mogensen, said launch one-way fares for flights from Delhi to Reykjavik and beyond to U.S. destinations like New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles will be Rs 13,499 (all-inclusive) for basic economy.

"The India-US nonstop takes the polar route that overflies Iceland".

"While the Wow basic introductory fare will be priced at Rs 13,499 with taxes, the "Wow premium" fares at the other end will be priced from Rs 46,599 onwards including taxes", the airline's founder and chief executive officer Skuli Mogensen said.

They are being reassigned to administrative duty pending the outcome of the investigation, the sheriff said. Four deputies caught up with him in the backyard of a nearby home, resulting in a physical struggle.

"The one way fair under the "Wow basic" includes all taxes but excludes meal and check in baggage, which will be charged separately".

The airline now serves 39 destinations across Europe and North America including London, Paris, New York, Toronto, Baltimore, San Francisco and Chicago. "We will always be 30-50% cheaper than fares on other airlines on the routes we fly on", Mogensen said.

WOW air has announced ambitious plans for an extensive route map in Asia, offering flights between North American destinations and Asia, with a stop-over in Iceland. Passengers will take off from London Gatwick, with a stop-over in Iceland, before the ten-and-a-half hour onward journey to Delhi.

"Our target segment is a customer for whom it is not acceptable to waste money", Mogensen said. There are only 4,200 of them, valid for travel between January 10 and March 31, 2019, so if you want the best deal, book fast: After those sell out, one-ways rise to $399 (still a damn good deal). "Fares can absorb the rising crude oil prices unless it breaches the Dollars 100 mark", he told PTI.

While UK travellers using the service will initially travel west, the airline expects its competitive fares to still entice those looking to keep their costs down.
