First scheduled Wizz Air flight lands in Abu Dhabi

Wizz Air yesterday celebrated the arrival of its first scheduled Wizz Air Hungary flight to Abu Dhabi International Airport.

It is a great milestone in Wizz Air history as the first Budapest-Abu Dhabi flight landed in the capital of the United Arab Emirates, to be followed shortly by the flight from Bucharest and in September by the Sofia, Katowice and Cluj-Napoca flights. With these services Wizz Air will connect these exciting European cities with Abu Dhabi and will provide countless opportunities for its passengers to visit this exciting city and discover its cultural and touristic gems.

Today’s celebration comes as the new era of sanitized travel recently began at Wizz Air. The airline introduced a range of enhanced hygiene measures, to ensure the health and safety of its passengers and crew. As part of these new protocols, throughout the flight, both cabin crew and passengers are required to wear facemasks, with cabin crew also required to wear gloves. Wizz Air’s aircraft are regularly put through an industry-leading disinfection process with an antiviral solution and, following WIZZ’s stringent daily cleaning schedule, all of the airline’s aircraft are further disinfected overnight with the same antiviral solution. Sanitising wipes are handed to each passenger upon entering the aircraft, onboard magazines have been removed from the aircraft, and any onboard purchases are encouraged to be made by contactless payment. Passengers are requested to follow physical distancing measures introduced by the local health authorities and are encouraged to make all purchases prior to the flight online (e.g. checked in luggage, WIZZ Priority, fast security track), to minimize any possible physical contact at the airport.

George Michalopoulos, Chief Commercial Officer of Wizz Air said:I am delighted to celebrate the first scheduled Wizz Air flight to Abu Dhabi. Wizz Air is committed to growing the airline’s network to the capital of the United Arab Emirates. Our new sanitizing protocols will give our customers the confidence that they can safely rely on Wizz Air’s ultra-low fares to visit Abu Dhabi on board one of the world’s greenest fleet.  Wizz Air’s ultra-low fares and route network will contribute to the further growth of Abu Dhabi’s tourism sector.”
