Wizz Air Abu Dhabi launches route to Santorini

Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, the newest national airline of the United Arab Emirates, will fly two times per week from the UAE capital to one of Greece’s most stunning travel destinations: the island of Santorini.

With Greece and the United Arab Emirates having opened a travel corridor earlier in May, vaccinated travellers can visit the Aegean archipelago without needing to quarantine.

They must provide a negative PCR test taken by swab up to 72 hours before the arrival, or hold a certificate of vaccination in English issued by a public authority, children 5 years of age and younger are exempted.

The vaccination needs to have been completed at least 14 days before arrival to Greece.

Kees Van Schaick, managing director of Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, said: “With its iconic whitewashed villages and charming blue domed roofs, it’s no surprise that Santorini is an ever-popular destination for travellers the world over.

“And now, with the UAE and Greece having agreed a travel corridor, Wizz Air Abu Dhabi is delivering safe, efficient, hassle-free, and ultra-low fare travel options for UAE residents looking for a Hellenistic holiday.”
