Wizz Air confirmed to Aeronews that the airline is to launch 5 routes from Eastern Europe to Abu Dhabi Airport between 3 June and 16 September. Meanwhile, the airline also leaves Dubai.
Wizz Air expands its route network to the United Arab Emirates. After launching 5 routes to Dubai World Central / Al Maktoum Airport in October 2013, the Hungarian low-cost prepares to move out to another major gateway of the country, Abu Dhabi, with 2 routes to be launched in June and the last 3 in September :
Twice to three times per week from Bucharest to Abu Dhabi, from 3 June.
Twice to three times per week from Budapest to Abu Dhabi, from 3 June.
Twice a week from Cluj-Napoca to Abu Dhabi from 16 September.
Twice a week from Katowice to Abu Dhabi, from 15 September.
Twice a week from Sofia to Abu Dhabi, from 15 September.
These new routes are already bookable, while flights to Dubai World Central have been changed to “Sold out” on Wizz Air website.
This change happens as the airline is creating a new subsidiary in the UAE under the Wizz Air Abu Dhabi name in cooperation with Abu Dhabi Developmental Holding, to be launch in Autumn 2020.
