In addition to the new destinations, the carrier added that the new aircraft will enable it to increase the ultra-low-cost-travel footprint on the current network with further services between Abu Dhabi and Tirana, Yerevan, Baku, Alexandria, Kutaisi, Athens, Almaty, Astana, Sarajevo, Ankara, Tashkent as well as Samarkand.

Johan Eidhagen, managing director of Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, said: The ninth aircraft will provide an additional thirty thousand ultra-low-fare seats per month, enabling us to expand our network. We will continue expanding our network throughout 2023, capitalising on record growth last year.”

Wizz Air Abu Dhabi operated more than 6,000 flights and transported over 1.2 million passengers in 2022.

The airline is a joint venture between ADQ and Wizz Air Holdings, and carried over 600,000 point-to-point passengers to the UAE last year alone.
