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

Wow Air founder and chief executive officer (CEO) Skuli Mogensen said at a press conference that the company which picked New Delhi as the first city to start service in Asia is offering a one-way economy class fare from India's capital to destinations like Iceland, US, Canada and London starting from Rs13,499 inclusive of taxes.
Low-priced airline Wow Air has announced flights to India from its Icelandic hub, the airline's first destination in south Asia. So passengers travelling to the USA will have a stop over at Reykjavik - acting as a hub for the airline - and then take a Wow flight to the US.
The cheap flights are available beginning in December, from Newark (EWR), Boston (BOS), Baltimore (BWI), Chicago O'Hare (ORD), Pittsburgh (PIT), Detroit (DTW), San Francisco (SFO), Los Angeles (LAX), and St. Louis (STL).
India is an underserved market as not sufficient worldwide flights are available compared with the number of passengers flying every day.
Besides, the airline said that it will offer 4 fare options - WOW basic, WOW plus, WOW comfy and WOW premium. "We will always be 30-50% cheaper than fares on other airlines on the routes we fly on", Mogensen said.
A Wow Air flight will take off from Delhi in morning hours and will take about 11 hours to reach Reykjavic.
About 20,000 Indians travel to North America on a daily basis and they will have more choice of travel. According to the airline, it is offering fare at this price to Keflavik airport and from there to other destinations in North America and Europe. "Fares can absorb the rising crude oil prices unless it breaches the Dollars 100 mark", he told PTI.
The airline said that Iceland falls on the regular route taken by carriers who fly out of India to the United States, so flying via Reykjavik would be the shortest one-stop flight.
Mr Mogensen said he was optimistic about the success of the airline in India. Besides, 80 per cent of them travel with a stop over, Mogensen said.
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.
