Wizz Air Abu Dhabi has confirmed plans to resume flights to Russia as early as October this year. Ticket booking is already available on the official Wizz Air website. This is reported by Reuters.
Low-cost carrier Wizz Air Abu Dhabi is 49 percent owned by Wizz Air Plc, a Hungarian company listed on the London Stock Exchange.
Wizz launched the Abu Dhabi – Vnukovo Airport route in December 2021 but was forced to stop flying due to the situation in Ukraine at the end of February 2022. The airline announced the suspension of all Russian flights throughout the summer until October 30.
However, this pause will last less than planned. The Wizz Air flight booking system shows flights from Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) to Vnukovo International Airport (VKO), the number three airport in Moscow, starting October 3rd.
Wizz Air Abu Dhabi Managing Director Michael Berluis commented: “Wizz Air Abu Dhabi operates a network of 34 destinations within a five-hour flight radius of Abu Dhabi, providing ultra-low fares to all of its destinations. We are supporting the UAE travel and tourism industry by expanding connectivity to new markets both regionally and globally, in line with national regulations and policies.”
