How to Travel to India from the U.S. for $199

How to travel to India from the U.S. for $199Want to travel to India for cheap? WOW air, the Icelandic low-cost airline written about here and here, has announced plans to begin flights to New Delhi, India, via Reykjavik on December 5 from seven U.S. cities: Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD), Detroit (DTW), Los Angeles (LAX), New York (EWR), San Francisco (SFO), and Washington D.C./Baltimore (BWI).

Even better: To celebrate the launch, WOW is offering—as it often does—some astoundingly low fares on select dates. From all seven cities, one-way flights to New Delhi (DEL) will begin at $199 (WOW basic). All flights will connect in Reykjavik, and eligible flights are all departures between January and March of 2019.

It’s important to keep in mind that WOW basic, the class in which the $199 one-ways are available, is pretty bare-bones. You get a personal item, for example, but a carry-on is extra (49.99 to $99.99, depending on when you pay for it). So make sure you review what your fare gets you before you book—and if you’re still in, head to while the discounted fares are still available.

  1. Wow! What a great deal! Thanks for sharing! India is my favorite destination!

  2. I do not think this is a truthful story. I of course called Wow Air right away, since their Wow website shows no such discounted fares. Spoke to two customer service reps, and both said versions of, “I don’t know what you are talking about…as far as we know; there has never been an LA-to-Delhi fare remotely close to what you’re saying.”

    So, either Wow’s own employees do not know about this promotion and its own website does not know about it, or, it’s just a fake story. If anyone here DID get this amazing deal, of course, please post and give the details on how you were able to get it.

  3. Think twice about booking any flight with WOW. They cancel flights and leave you stranded
    with no help. Their ground staff is rude. When they say their flights are bare-bones, they
    are not kidding.
