Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has signed an agreement with Capital Express for Rapid Intercity to transport Wizz Air passengers between Dubai and Abu Dhabi International airport.

The service will connect Terminals 1, 2 and 3 at Abu Dhabi International airport with Dubai’s Ibn Battuta Bus Station on an Express Bus Route.

Currently, this service is only dedicated for passengers flying on Wizz Air, according to UAE state news agency WAM.

The bus fare will be included in the Wizz Air tickets. The coach buses on this route will be equipped with passenger luggage facilities too.

Within the agreement, RTA will provide the parking spaces and infrastructure needed to facilitate the service at the Ibn Battuta Bus Station in Dubai.

The RTA will monitor and supervise operations at Ibn Battuta Bus Station, while the Capital Express For Rapid Intercity will handle operations aboard the buses to Abu Dhabi International airport.

“Joining forces with the private sector will strengthen RTA’s public-private partnership. It comprises the extension and enhancement of UAE’s transport network by offering bus services within cities, including Abu Dhabi. Through the agreement, Abu Dhabi International airport will be connected with Dubai’s Ibn Battuta Bus Station, RTA and Capital Express For Rapid Intercity will cooperate to lift passengers between the two emirates, and Capital Express will provide buses to transport passengers between Dubai’s Ibn Battuta Station and Abu Dhabi International Airport,” said Ahmed Hashim Bahrozyan, CEO, Public Transport Agency at the RTA.

Wizz Air Abu Dhabi has steadily been increasing the network of destinations that it flies to. In July, the airline confirmed that it will launch two new routes from the capital of the UAE to Maldives and Kuwait in October. Starting October 4, Wizz Air will operate flights four times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays from Abu Dhabi to Male in the Maldives. Beginning October 30, it will also initiate daily flights between Abu Dhabi and Kuwait City.

To accommodate a growing demand for its flights, the carrier has already increased the flight frequencies to Bahrain and Muscat. This month, Wizz Air Abu Dhabi will also begin flying to Dammam in Saudi Arabia, Rome and Vienna.
