The first budget airline services from the UK and US to India are set to take flight later this year on Wow Air

Established in November 2011 by Icelandic entrepreneur Skúli Mogensen, the purple airline flies with Airbus A320, Airbus A321 and Airbus A330 models.

The first flights to New Delhi take off in December.

The flights will include a stopover in Iceland before a 10-and-a-half hour flight to the Indian capital Delhi

According to the low fare transatlantic airline, its India operations will commence from December 7, 2018 with five direct flights a week between New Delhi and Keflavik airport "subject to final completion of regulatory formalities". One-way fares will start at $199 a xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" target="_blank" href="https://wowair.us/flights/wow-premium/" rel="nofollow" *WOW premium seats will be available for $699*.

Again these will include a stopover in Iceland before a 10-and-a-half hour flight to the Indian capital. Also, Wow flyers will have to travel really light as for anything beside one piece of small carry-on bag the airline will charge you extra. However, you'll only be able to book them if you're a member of the MyWow club.

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.

That is one part of the story; the other part is that introductory fares are available only if you are quick. The special fare is available for travel only from January 10 through March 31 next year when booked with a return trip. "We will offer a shorter total trip time than if you go to Dubai". The business class tickets will start from Rs. 46,599. You will be charged for carrying any additional baggage.

The flight will also be making a 6 hour 50 min stopover at Reykjavik's Keflavik International Airport before proceeding on to NY.

You also have to pay for seats for each leg of the journey (which means twice when you fly to the US) and that the shell-out could range from Rs 599 to as high as Rs 16,599 if you want to shift to large comfortable seats with a lot of leg space. So if you've already started thinking of all the things you're going to do in NY as soon as you land, we'll show you where to find these tickets and how to get them.
