The UAE’s newest national airline Wizz Air Abu Dhabi will launch its operations in mid-January, completing its inaugural flight from Ab Dhabi to Athens.

The airline delayed its initial plan to penetrate the Asian market last summer due to the unforeseen pandemic event and its destructive impact on air travel demand. However, currently, the airline is finally getting closer to realizing its intention.

Kees Van Schaick, Managing Director at Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, said, “The waiting is almost over for Abu Dhabi fans of our ultra-low fare airline. From 15th 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.”

“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,” he added.

Wizz Air Abu Dhabi will begin flying with two Airbus Airbus A321neo narrow-body jets in February and will gradually increase the fleet size within the next half a year.

The airline, which is a joint venture of Wizz Air Holdings plc. and ADQ, will have the lowest environmental footprint among others in the region, mostly thanks to its modern Airbus A321neo aircraft. The company also excels in sterilization practices and adopts preventive measures that enhance its passengers’ and crew members’ health and safety.
