WOW Air confirms India in new eastern push

WOW Air confirms India in new eastern push

Iceland's budget airline Wow Air has announced "cheapest flights" to multiple North American destination and Europe via Reykjavik from December this year. The 3X-weekly Airbus A330neo route will launch in December, increasing to 5X-weekly from January 2019.

To promote the India service, Wow Air is offering $199 one-way fares from St. Louis to Delhi.

Wow's new route is available from New York City (Newark), Boston, Baltimore, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Detroit, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and St. Louis, and those ultra-cheap tickets are selling out quickly. "We are passionate about continuing our mission of enabling everybody to fly by making worldwide travel accessible and affordable for all, and look forward to expanding our global service to provide travellers with the opportunity to see many parts of the globe, whether for business or pleasure". These include The Red Fort, Humayun's Tomb, India Gate and the Qutub Minar.

And for those travelers who want a relative deal but don't want to sacrifice comfort, WOW Air is also introducing a premium seating option, with more legroom, priority boarding, in-flight dining, and up to two checked bags.

St. Louis Lambert International Airport is among seven US airports targeted for the special fares to India. Based on lowest one-way WOW Basic fare booked on www.wowair.us. But though you may be able to book tickets now, you won't be able to travel until January 15, 2018 - which is the first available flight out from New Delhi to NY with a sub ₹14,000 price tag. You will be charged for carrying any additional baggage. You won't be able to select your seat, and you'll have to pay for any in-flight meals ($9 to $14).

WOW air offers the lowest fares, a modern fleet with the lowest emissions and the biggest smile; this is the WOW air promise to its valuable customers.

The airline will ferry passengers in an Airbus A330 Neo. WOW air boasts one of the world's youngest fleet, with an average aircraft age of just 2 years.

The Icelandic airline's move comes at a time when Indian budget carriers IndiGo, owned by InterGlobe Aviation, and SpiceJet have said they are drawing up plans to launch low cost long haul flights, including to Europe and the United States.
