Wizz Air Abu Dhabi has confirmed that it will begin operating flights to three new destinations in Greece – the islands of Mykonos, Rhodes and Crete.

Flights to Mykonos will commence from July 7, to Crete from July 9 and to Rhodes from July 12.

The route to Mykonos will be operated twice per week on Wednesdays and Sundays. Flights to Rhodes will operate on Mondays and Fridays, which is also the same days that the airline will operate services to Crete.

Tickets to these three destinations went on sale across the airline’s platforms on Monday, June 7, with one-way fares starting from Dhs179.

With the addition of these three destinations, Wizz Air Abu Dhabi’s flight network has increased to 29 destinations.

“As the summer holidays are fast approaching, we’re thrilled to announce our latest destinations to the stunning Greek islands of Mykonos, Rhodes and Crete. These new routes follow the recent announcements of the UAE establishing a travel corridor with Greece which is a great step for the travel industry and tourists,” said Kees Van Schaick, managing director of Wizz Air Abu Dhabi.

By way of the travel corridor between Greece and the UAE, passengers from the UAE can fly into Greece without having to quarantine on arrival. They must provide a negative PCR test taken 72 hours before arrival, or hold a vaccination certificate in English issued by a public authority. Children five years of age and younger are exempted from this requirement. The vaccination needs to have been completed at least 14 days before arrival to Greece. The certificate should include the full name of the passenger, the type of vaccine, the number of doses taken with their respective dates.

Travellers must also complete a Passenger Locator Form, provided electronically by Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, prior to arriving at the airport. Wizz Air Abu Dhabi offers discounted PCR tests in Abu Dhabi.

When returning to Abu Dhabi, UAE residents and citizens who have been vaccinated for at least 28 days, and have received a vaccine report on the Alhosn app, will be able to fly into the UAE from Greece without having to follow quarantine restrictions. Passengers will have to take a PCR test 72 hours before departure, alongside taking another free of charge PCR test on arrival at Abu Dhabi airport and another on the sixth day after arriving. Children 12 years of age and younger are exempted.

Apart from these three destinations in Greece, Wizz Air Abu Dhabi earlier said that it would start flights to Santorini in Greece from July 2.

Another Abu Dhabi-based carrier, Etihad Airways, too earlier this week confirmed that it will operate seasonal flights to Mykonos and Santorini across July and September.
