03 Jan 2021
The UAE’s newest budget airline has announced its debut route and launched ticket sales.
Wizz Air Abu Dhabi has now launched flights between the UAE capital and the capital of Greece, Athens.
Starting from January 15, flights will take place twice a week with fares starting from Dhs129 for a one way journey.
Flights between the two capitals will depart the UAE on Mondays and Fridays.
Early next month, starting from February 4, the airline will also start twice weekly flights to Thessaloniki, Greece with fares starting from Dhs149.
Previously announced destinations including Alexandria, Kutaisi, Larnaca, Odesa and Yerevan will also be added once each respective country is added to the ‘green list’ for safe travel.
Abu Dhabi is now open to international tourism to countries on the ‘green list’ which is updated fortnightly to ensure the safety of passengers and residents.
“The waiting is almost over for Abu Dhabi fans of our ultra-low fare airline. From 15 January 2021, a new model of air travel comes to Abu Dhabi, offering new choices and new competition, demonstrating that things are looking up for next year,” said Kees Van Schaick, managing director of Wizz Air Abu Dhabi.
“Our network from Abu Dhabi will expand rapidly as destinations on our planned network are added to the ‘green countries’ list.
“Thanks to the support of the government and our local business partners in Abu Dhabi, we are fully prepared.
“We have the aircraft, we have the crew, we have the partners, and we are ready to fly. We look forward to building a new travel segment in this important market.”
