Wizz Air, the Hungarian budget airline is opening an Abu Dhabi arm very soon, meaning more cost-effective travel to Eastern Europe.
The no-frills airline currently flys from DWC airport in Dubai, to Budapest in Hungary, as well as Romania for as little as AED500 for a round-trip.
And it's likely to get even better with the confirmation of Wizz Air Abu Dhabi.
The airline's arm hopes to open up more Middle Eastern travel for Europeans and UAE to Europe, with the CEO, Jozsef Varadi writing: "Wizz Air Abu Dhabi will begin operations in the second half of 2020, opening up the UAE to the existing Wizz network, as well as the Indian subcontinent, the Middle East and Africa in the longer term. The new airline will have access to five billion customers across Europe and beyond."
At present the airline flies to about 150 destinations, with its headquarters in Budapest, Hungary.
As a low-cost airline, Wizz has done away with business class, with the CEO encouraging other airlines to do the same, from a sustainability point of view, citing that one business class passenger is the same carbon footprint as two people flying economy.
