The route will launch December 5, 2018, giving business and leisure travelers affordable and easy access to the heart of India.

The airline is promoting its Delhi service as being available via WOW's connections via Newark Liberty, (EWR), Boston Logan (BOS), Baltimore/Washington (BWI), Chicago O'Hare (ORD), Pittsburgh (PIT), Detroit Metropolitan (DTW), San Francisco (SFO), Los Angeles (LAX) and St. Louis Lambert (STL) airports. Skúli Mogensen, the owner and CEO of WOW air has previously said that Asia is a major future growth market for the airline. "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 Skull Mogensen said. "We are targetting the smart traveller", Mogensen said.

Wow Air, which plans to fly its new Airbus A330neo aircraft to Delhi, will have to compete with Middle Eastern carriers such as Emirates and Etihad Airways that now dominate passenger traffic from India to the West. The one-way fares only apply when accompanied by a return booking. Includes all taxes, fees and carrier charges. So flying between India and North America via Reykjavik is the shortest one-stop flights. 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).

Mogensen said that the airline has studied potential new destinations in India and will reveal its future plans to connect them to Iceland and North America within the next 12 months.

Iceland falls on the regular route taken by carriers who fly out of India to the United States and flying via Reykjavik would be the shortest one-stop flight, the airline said.
