Chairman, József Váradi said: “The launch of Wizz Air Abu Dhabi recognises Abu Dhabi as a bold new frontier for ultra-low fare travel in the region. We most welcome the opportunity to contribute to Abu Dhabi’s efforts to provide a new segment of travel in the UAE in line with its socio-economic vision. We are looking forward to working in strategic partnership with our stakeholders in Abu Dhabi for the benefits of the country by opening up new travel options for residents and tourists.”

Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, a joint venture established between ADQ and Wizz Air Holdings, initially announced a route network that includes Athens, Thessaloniki, Alexandria, Kutaisi, Larnaca, Odesa and Yerevan. Additional destinations will be added in the coming months, official news agency WAM reported.

The airline will have the lowest environmental footprint in the region, with its fleet of four new Airbus A321neo aircraft.

Wizz Air has also introduced sanitized travel across its network, with enhanced hygiene measures to ensure the health and safety of passengers and crew.

Wizz Air also expects to start flights to Israel’s Tel Aviv next month. As per its plan, the carrier will offer four weekly flights (reaching daily flights during peak frequency), with fares set to begin at Dhs99.
