Fares from the U.S. to India may go on sale from time to time, but they are rarely, if ever, cheap. That may soon change with WOW Air’s New Delhi service, set to begin December 5.
Fares are advertised as $199 but that’s only for the outbound leg of a roundtrip ticket, with the return leg priced a bit higher. Searching Detroit for late January departures, the $199 outbound comes with a $345 return for WOW basic, or $554 total. That’s WOW’s cheapest ticketing tier which includes only a personal item. Carry on and checked baggage is additional. In other words, pack light or pay up.
Reduced intro fares are currently available for departures from Newark (EWR), Boston (BOS), Baltimore (BWI), Chicago (ORD), Detroit (DTW), and Los Angeles (LAX).
WOW’s sale fares are available for travel from January 5 through April 10, though we did spot similarly low fares from some cities for departures as early as December 5.
From Reykjavik, flights will operate using the brand new Airbus A330-900neo. Depart from KEF Mondays through Thursdays, as well as Saturdays; return from DEL on Tuesdays through Fridays, as well as Sundays.
