Airlines Wow Air announces flights to Dehli
Iceland’s low cost carrier Wow Air has announced to connect its hub Reykjavik with Delhi in India.
The new route, which is the first route to Asia, will launch December 5, 2018. Wow Air will offer connection flights to the following US destinations: Newark Liberty International Airport, Boston Logan International Airport, Baltimore/Washington International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport, Pittsburgh International Airport, Detroit Metropolitan Airport, San Francisco International Airport, Los Angeles International Airport and St. Louis Lambert International Airport.
"I am thrilled to broaden WOW air's offerings and bring low fare international flight service to India," said Skúli Mogensen, founder and CEO of WOW air. "We are passionate about continuing our mission of enabling everybody to fly by making international travel accessible and affordable for all, and look forward to expanding our global service to provide travelers with the opportunity to see many parts of the globe, whether for business or pleasure."
Wow Air will use its first delivered Airbus A330-900Neo for the new route. The carrier has ordered four jets, which will have 365 seats, 42 in business and 323 in economy class. The new route will be the first direct connection between Delhi and Reykjavik. On its connection flights to the US destinations, Wow Air will have to compete with Air India, Air Canada and United Airlines, which offer direct flight connections to several destinations.
Wow Air commenced operations in 2012 connecting destinations in the US and Canada with European destinations via its hub in Iceland. The current fleet consists of two Airbus A320, one A320Neo, eight A321, one A321Neo and three A330-300. As the airline operates with an ultra-low cost concept, the aircraft are configured with a high density configuration.
