Low-cost airline WOW air has announced flights to India from its Icelandic hub, the airline’s first destination in South Asia.
Low-cost airline WOW air has announced flights to India from its Icelandic hub. From 6th December 2018, passengers for travel to Delhi can fly from London Gatwick with a stop-over in Iceland before the 10-hour onward journey to Delhi.
The route is the first step in the carrier’s next phase of cross-continental expansion, having launched a plethora of transatlantic services over the past three years. 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.
Fares start from £149* one way including taxes, or for passengers looking for a more high-end experience WOW premium** prices start from just £499 one-way including taxes.
Skúli Mogensen, founder and CEO of WOW air, said: “We are delighted to announce our network expansion into India. This exciting new route is an important milestone in the growth of WOW air and signifies our continuing mission to open the skies and enable even greater travel possibilities, always at the best rates possible.”
Serviced by the airline’s brand new A330neo wide-body jetliner, the new route to Delhi will operate three times per week from Iceland, increasing to five times per week from January 2019. Flights from London Gatwick to Reykjavik operate twice daily.
** The WOW premium package includes a ‘Big Seat’ complete with footrest and 37-45 inch pitch, priority boarding, Fast Track security clearance, an in-flight meal and beverages, two checked bags plus a carry-on, and the ability to reschedule or cancel a booking without incurring a fee
