Keflavik to Delhi connects Iceland with India on WOW

WOW air, Iceland’s low-fare transatlantic airline, announced the launch of its flight operations in India beginning on December 7, 2018. The airline will have 5 direct flights a week between New Delhi and Keflavik airport in Iceland that will connect to multiple destinations in North America and Europe.

WOW air will be the second European airline in the world to deploy the most modern long-haul aircraft, the Airbus A330neo, for the route from New Delhi.

Announcing the launch of its India operations, Skúli Mogensen, Chief Executive Officer and founder of WOW air, said in New Delhi on May 15: “We are thrilled to launch our operations in India, a diverse country with tremendous potential. Our launch is in sync with India’s aviation growth story, and we look forward to being part of it with our very affordable fares to North America and Europe onboard brand-new Airbus A330neos. It is also a major milestone for WOW air, as we are now connecting Asia with our extensive network in North America and Europe, making Iceland a global hub. WOW air also plans to add more flights to India in the future as the country strongly moves ahead to become the world’s third largest tourism economy in the next 10 years.”

As of the spring of 2018, the airline services 39 destinations across Europe and North America including the cities of London, Paris, New York, Toronto, Baltimore, San Francisco, Chicago, and more. The purple airline flies with a fleet of Airbus A320, Airbus A321, and Airbus A330 models. Seating is offered in 4 fare options: WOW basic, WOW plus, WOW comfy, and WOW premium.

The airline was established in November 2011 by Skúli Mogensen, an entrepreneur and investor, primarily in the technology, media, and telecom industry in North America and Europe. Mogensen was awarded The Businessman of the Year Award in Iceland in 2011 and 2016.
