WizzAir Abu Dhabi is one of the first carriers to fly from Abu Dhabi Airport’s newly-constructed Terminal A.
National low-cost UAE airline Wizz Air Abu Dhabi has commenced operations at Abu Dhabi International’s new Terminal A, one of the first carriers to take advantage of the state-of-the-art facility. Their first trip was a direct flight to Cairo’s Sphinx International Airport.
Inaugurating affordable flights to Cairo, the carrier aims to enhance regional connectivity central to its strategy. Flights between Abu Dhabi and Cairo will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, with fares starting at 199 AED. “The move to the new terminal and launching our new route to Sphinx, Cairo is a milestone moment in our phenomenal recent growth as it strengthens our position in playing a key role in the growth of the aviation sector in Abu Dhabi and accelerating the emirate’s position as a global gateway and aviation hub,” Johan Eidhagen, Wizz Air Abu Dhabi Managing Director, tells SceneTraveler.
The world-class infrastructure of Terminal A allows carriers like Wizz Air to offer travelers budget-friendly access to cultural riches nationwide. “With the launch of operations from Terminal A, we are providing the aviation infrastructure for our national carriers to flourish and achieve their growth requirements as well as Abu Dhabi’s strategic visitation plans,” Elena Sorlini, Interim CEO of Abu Dhabi Airports, tells SceneTraveller.
WizzAir currently flies to more than 39 destinations in 27 different countries, and aims to expand their operations to include new destinations in 2024.
