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".

Wow Air offers low-priced flights via its hub in Reykjavik and would provide the cheapest best option available to passengers traveling from India to North America's eastern seaboard. Delhi has been chosen as the first Asian market and location for the airline.

Established in November 2011 by Icelandic entrepreneur Skúli Mogensen, the purple airline flies with Airbus A320, Airbus A321 and Airbus A330 models. If you also want the facility to cancel the ticket due to illness or emergency, you have to add in another Rs 1,999 as cancellation protection.

You'll be able to book cheap flights from New Delhi to NY only on Wow Air's website as of now. In case you have forgotten to book this facility online, you have to fork out a staggering Rs 10,718 at check-in.

Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ get Burgundy Red and Sunrise Gold colors
The company is also expected to launch a Lite version of Galaxy S8 , the previous version of Galaxy S9, on 21 May in China . Separately, Samsung has also unveiled the Sunrise Gold and Burgundy Red colour variants of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+.


When Wow unveiled plans to fly from St. Louis to Iceland, the airline offered special introductory fares on flights then as well.

That is one part of the story; the other part is that introductory fares are available only if you are quick.

That introductory fare applies to flights between January 10, 2019 and March 31, 2019, and the airline said that fare is available for 4,200 seats on selected flights, only when booked with a return trip. When we checked on the airline's website, the we found that this ticket would also only allow you to carry hand luggage of up to 10 kg, provided that it fits under the seat in front of yours. And this, of course, excludes the charges if your baggage has crossed the permissible weight.

The airline on its website has claimed that travelling to NY with a couple of hours stop-over at Reykjavik would take about 20 hours. The total flight time is 23 hours and 5 minutes. Considering that, Kuwait Airlines looks more attractive during the same period of travel, especially as the fare is also refundable.
