Watch: First Wizz Air Flight Lands at Abu Dhabi International Airport
Wizz Air and Abu Dhabi Airports have celebrated the arrival of Wizz Air’s first scheduled Wizz Air Hungary flight to Abu Dhabi International Airport.
Marking a great milestone in Wizz Air’s history and further strengthening of Abu Dhabi’s connectivity and accessibility as a destination of choice for business and leisure travel, the first Budapest-Abu Dhabi flight landed in the capital of the United Arab Emirates on 1 July 2020.
The inaugural Wizz Air route from Bucharest will be followed in September by flights from Sofia, Katowice and Cluj-Napoca.
With these services, Wizz Air will connect these European cities with Abu Dhabi and will provide countless opportunities for travellers to visit the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
