In just over three months, WOW air will launch its flight service from the U.S. to Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL) in New Delhi, India via Iceland beginning December 5, 2018. The new route will provide millions of Americans in seven major metro areas across the country an extremely affordable way to visit the lively city.
“We are very excited to start flying to New Delhi in December. I am very happy with the feedback and demand we have gotten so far on our India flight and it’s clear that there is a great need for affordable travel between North America and Delhi,” said Skúli Mogensen, founder and CEO of WOW air. “Our mission is to enable everybody to fly by offering very reasonable prices to all our destinations and as a result hopefully more people will have the opportunity to see the World.”
At the end of 2018, the airline will offer service to New Delhi from Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD), Detroit (DTW), New York (EWR), Los Angeles (LAX), Pittsburgh (PIT), San Francisco (SFO), St. Louis (STL), and Washington D.C./Baltimore (BWI).
New Delhi, a blended metropolis of old and new, is a fast growing and vibrant city with historic sites and unrivalled culture. The Delhi region, acting as the capital of various empires in ancient India, has over 60,000 recognized monuments; visitors can travel to the Lotus Temple among other notable temples and tombs. Visitors can also enjoy the National Gallery of Modern Art and take advantage of the best markets of India lining the bustling streets.
WOW air will use brand new Airbus A330neo aircrafts on the Delhi route, which are outfitted with WOW premium seats offering at least 37 inches of legroom.
