Fly to UK, US for less than Rs 14,000, but just with a ‘personal item’

Mumbai: If you can think out of the box and fly to the US or Europe without carrying even a hand bag, then Icelandic carrier Wow Air will fly you out of Delhi for as little as Rs 13,500, one way. Low-cost long-haul flights at eye-popping promotional fares are set to debut in India with the launch of Delhi-Reykjavik flights by Wow Air on December 7.
But there is a huge catch. You can carry only what the airline calls, a “personal item”, which could be small bag like a laptop bag or an office bag. You cannot carry any suitcase that goes into the cabin as a hand bag or any check-in bag. You also won’t be served food on board the 12-hour flight from Delhi to Iceland’s capital Reykjavik and onwards to Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington, Boston, Toronto, London or any of the destinations the airline connects to from its hub.

The cheapest fare is Rs 13,500 for flights to Reykjavik and onwards to at least 10 destinations in the US and Europe. But the Rs 13,500 basic fare is hard to come by and on Tuesday, most of these tickets were already booked. The next fare bucket was for Rs 26,000, which isn’t a great deal considering the ‘personal item’ condition.
