Iceland's long-haul budget airline Wow Air on Tuesday announced its entry into the Indian market offering ultra low fares for services from New Delhi to North America and Europe.

The airline says fares will start from as little as £149 one way including taxes, or from £499 one-way including taxes for premium. So passengers travelling to the USA will have a stop over at Reykjavik - acting as a hub for the airline - and then take a Wow flight to the US.

Skuli Mogensen, Wow Air's founder and CEO, explained while speaking to NDTV that the cheap flights were available as part of the basic introductory fare and that additional taxes would apply to the price.

This winter, Wow is scheduled to fly from Reykjavik to the USA cities of Newark, Boston, Baltimore, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Detroit, San Francisco, Los Angeles and St. Louis.

WOW Air, which will be flying A-330 Neo to India, now serves 39 destinations across Europe and including Chicago, Toronto, London and Paris.

Besides, the airline said that it will offer 4 fare options - WOW basic, WOW plus, WOW comfy and WOW premium.

Mogensen said that the airline has studied potential new destinations in India and will reveal its future plans to connect them to Iceland and North America within the next 12 months. "We will always be 30-50% cheaper than fares on other airlines on the routes we fly on", Mogensen said.

According to the Wow Air's website, travelling to NY with a couple of hours stop-over at Reykjavik, would take about 20 hours. As of spring 2018, the airline services 39 destinations across Europe and North America including Dublin, London, Paris, Berlin, and Copenhagen. "Fares can absorb the rising crude oil prices unless it breaches the Dollars 100 mark", he told PTI.

Iceland falls on the regular route taken by carriers who fly out of India to the U.S. and flying via Reykjavik would be the shortest one-stop flight, the airline said.

"Our target segment is a customer for whom it is not acceptable to waste money", Mogensen said. The launch of this service they will offer more choice of travel to them.
