The airline on Tuesday said that the fare would start at Rs 13,499.
"The India-US nonstop takes the polar route that overflies Iceland". That will start with basic, which covers only the fare and excludes charges for the seat, baggage and food, and goes up to premium, which is similar to business class. The other two fare options are "Wow plus" and "Wow comfy".
Announcing the launch of its India operations, Skúli Mogensen, Chief Executive Officer and founder of WOW air, said in New Delhi on May 15: "We are thrilled to launch our operations in India, a diverse country with tremendous potential".
It now serves 39 destinations including London, Paris, New York, Toronto, Baltimore, San Francisco and Chicago. According to available data, about 20,000 Indians travel to North America on a daily basis.
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. "We will always be 30-50% cheaper than fares on other airlines on the routes we fly on", Mogensen said.
Wow Air will have five direct flights a week between New Delhi and Keflavik airport in Iceland that will connect to several destinations in North America and Europe using Airbus A330neo aircraft, starting 7 December. "Fares can absorb the rising crude oil prices unless it breaches the United States dollars 100 mark", he told PTI.
According to the Wow Air's website, travelling to NY with a couple of hours stop-over at Reykjavik, would take about 20 hours. Skúli Mogensen, the owner and CEO of WOW air has previously said that Asia is a major future growth market for the airline.
Meanwhile, the airline CEO said was optimistic about the success of the airline in India.
It should also be noted that the airline does not offer refunds on these tickets, should you choose to cancel them for any reason. 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).
