WOW air introduces its first ever flight to India
THE AIRLINE’S NEW ROUTE TO NEW DELHI OFFERS CANADIANS MOST AFFORDABLE FLIGHT OPTION TO INDIA
TORONTO, May 15, 2018 /CNW/ – WOW air, Iceland’s only low-fare airline, will soon connect Canadians to the hustling and bustling of colourful Delhi at the lowest price on the market with a new route to India lifting off December 6, 2018. Travellers from Toronto and Montreal will be able to book starting May 15, 2018 with one-way trips from as low as $299 CAD and WOW premium starting at $899 CAD—a premium flight price you won’t find on other airlines.
“We are very excited to count New Delhi among our list of growing destinations outside of Europe,” said Skúli Mogensen, CEO and founder of WOW air. “This addition expands on WOW air’s promise to connect more travellers to as many diverse and exciting cities at the best-possible prices.”
Delhi is the Indian metropolis that includes New Delhi, the capital city of India. The city, itself, has a population of 21.75 million people—that’s 65 times the population of the entire country of Iceland! New Delhi is a dynamic and exciting place; being home to the Rashtrapati Bhavan (or Presidential Residence, if you aren’t fluent in one of the 22 official Indian languages), it’s known for its official and luxurious presence, while also boasting the lively wonders of the streets.
Delhi, a popular travel destination place, provides visitors with magical sights, sounds, smells and tastes of its endless bazaars, as well as some of the world’s prominent heritage sites. These include The Red Fort, Humayun’s Tomb, India Gate and the Qutub Minar. Just a 200 km road-trip away is the majestic Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
India is a country rich in culture. Virtually every ten kilometres there’s different people, languages, ways of life and food. The variety in Delhi, alone, is endless and at such a low price, there’s no reason why travellers can’t visit more than once.
Not only will the new route let Canadians explore India at a never-before-seen affordable price, they will still get to indulge in a stopover in Reykjavik and all the geothermal pools and black sand beaches that come with it, and, experiences two opposite ends of the spectrum in one trip.
