WOW Air has built their reputation on getting Americans to Europe and back for super cheap. The airline is also partly responsible for convincing so many of us to check out Iceland without breaking the bank. Now, the budget carrier is stepping it up notch by offering flights to India starting at $199 one-way or $398 round trip. This means that if you can cram everything you need into a bag that fits under the seat in front of you, and don’t mind running the risk of being stuck in the middle seat, you can get from the US to India and back for less than $400. On a budget carrier such as WOW Air, checked bags and advance seat assignments will cost extra.

WOW’s one-stop service to Delhi, India begins December 8th, 2018 and departs from a number of major US cities including Newark, Boston, Baltimore, Chicago, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, Detroit, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. The catch is that you have to fly through WOW Air’s hub in Reykjavik, Iceland on the way (as if you needed a reason to visit Iceland too).

The service will be WOW Air’s first ever route to Asia and, at the moment, stands as the cheapest option for most Americans looking to travel to India. Should you want to upgrade your flight, Premium fares start at $699, according to The Points Guy. The premium option gives you in-flight food and drinks and two checked bags. This also gives you access to faster boarding, a foot rest, a wider seat, and at least 37 inches of legroom — which may come in handy on this jaunt to the other side of the planet. Tickets for these ultra-cheap flights to India are on sale now via WOW’s website.
