Prices from London start from £149 one-way while flights from the U.S. will start from $199 one-way.

The 's founder and CEO, Skuli Mogensen, said launch one-way fares for flights from Delhi to Reykjavik and beyond to United States destinations like New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles will be Rs 13,499 (all-inclusive) for basic economy.

Wow's new route is available from New York City (Newark), Boston, Baltimore, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Detroit, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and St. Louis, and those ultra-cheap tickets are selling out quickly.

Announcing the opening of the direct route to India in Delhi today, Skuli Mogensen, Founder & CEO of the Airline said that Delhi is the first destination that the airline is opening in Asia as he felt there is more opportunity here considering the route offers "superior flight path to North America" through its hub in Iceland. "We are passionate about continuing our mission of enabling everybody to fly by making worldwide travel accessible and affordable for all, and look forward to expanding our global service to provide travellers with the opportunity to see many parts of the globe, whether for business or pleasure". And just a 125 mile road trip from Delhi is the Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The one-way fares only apply when accompanied by a return booking.

WOW air will use brand new Airbus A330neo aircrafts on the Delhi route, which are outfitted with the new WOW premium seats offering at least 37 inches of legroom. Includes all taxes, fees and carrier charges.

Again these will include a stopover in Iceland before a 10-and-a-half hour flight to the Indian capital. There are only 4,200 of them, valid for travel between January 10 and March 31, 2019, so if you want the best deal, book fast: After those sell out, one-ways rise to $399 (still a damn good deal).

On long haul, WOW already serves 14 North American destinations.

Meanwhile, the airline CEO said was optimistic about the success of the airline in India.
