WOW Air starts service from India today with fares presently as low as INR 14,500. The Icelandic airline will take flight to cities like New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Detroit, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Chicago, London, Montreal, Washington DC, Orlando and Toronto from the Indian capital. However, there will be a stopover in Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital, which is a good opportunity for the country to boost its tourism. The airline operates three weekly flights from New Delhi. Interestingly, the basic charges do not include check-in baggage and meals. Passengers are required to pay extra for them. The flights from India to the US take only upto 18 hours, including a two-hour layover in the Icelandic capital.
WOW Air has four exciting fare options including WOW Basic, WOW Plus, WOW Comfy & WOW Premium, supposedly offering never-seen-before fares for transatlantic travel for the Indian traveller. WOW Basic includes your flight ticket plus a personal item (like your wallet), while WOW Plus includes the items mentioned previously and a carry-on bag, one check-in bag and a standard seat. The WOW Comfy includes XXL legroom and a cancellation policy. Lastly, WOW Premium brings to you priority boarding, in-flight meals, a no-change fee, more legroom, wider seats and two check-in bags. Of course, this results in a substantial premium in the ticket price. When WOW Air’s business model says, “pay for what you use”, they mean it quite literally.
The airline focusses on cheap flights and “WOW” service. The food on the airline, if you choose to have any, is an array of Indian and Icelandic cuisines. So, with options to pick from, munch away.
