Low-cost carrier, Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, will begin flights to Moscow, its first destination in Russia, later this year.

The flights to Moscow will be initially operated four times a week in December on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The service will be ramped up to a daily flight everyday from February 2022.

The Moscow route brings Wizz Air Abu Dhabi’s total network of destinations to 33, after having launched operations in January 2021.

“We’re pleased to announce Moscow as the latest addition to our route network – the travel route between the UAE and Russia has for a long time been popular and we’re looking forward to increasing traffic between the two countries,” said Kees Van Schaick, managing director of Wizz Air Abu Dhabi.

Jozsef Varadi, group CEO of Wizz Air added, “Today’s announcement underlines our commitment to bringing a growing number of low-fare opportunities for Russian travellers, and importantly, Wizz Air’s long-term strategic interest in the Russian market. With this new route, we are looking forward to opening up a Middle Eastern gem to Russian travellers, while allowing them to experience our high-quality service on the young and sustainable fleet of our newest national airline, Wizz Air Abu Dhabi.”
