European low-cost carrier Wizz Air has announced five new routes from Abu Dhabi, which are set to launch later this year.

The budget airline will connect the UAE capital with Budapest and Bucharest from June; and with Cluj-Napoca, Katowice and Sofia from September, subject to aviation activity resuming amid the current coronavirus pandemic.

Meanwhile, the airline also leaves Dubai.

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 :

2x – 3x per week from Bucharest to Abu Dhabi, from 3 June.
2x – 3x per week from Budapest to Abu Dhabi, from 3 June.

2x per week from Cluj-Napoca to Abu Dhabi from 16 September.
2x per week from Katowice to Abu Dhabi, from 15 September.
2x per 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.

The services will be the first direct routes between the capital of the United Arab Emirates and Budapest, Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Katowice and Sofia adding an almost 220,000 seat capacity to the airline’s Abu Dhabi network per year.

József Váradi, CEO of Hungary-based Wizz Air Holdings said: “Today’s announcement underpins our long term dedication to bringing low fares combined with a high quality onboard experience to ever more customers in Abu Dhabi.

The Hungarian airline will become the first European low-cost carrier to launch flights to Abu Dhabi.

Economy fares are expected to start from €59.99/ Dhs 240 – tickets are on sale and can be booked through wizzair.com.

If flights are impacted due to the pandemic, travellers will be able to rebook, get refund or travel credit.
