Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, an ultra-low-cost carrier based in the United Arab Emirates and partly owned by Wizz Air Holdings, recently announced an extension of its network from Abu Dhabi.

The carrier will serve the Maldives island via its capital, Male, and its 5th key destination in the Gulf, Kuwait.

As demand for air travel increases dramatically, Wizz Air Abu Dhabi believes the market is in a prime position to expand to exciting and highly anticipated destinations.

The new routes will allow carriers to work on their ambition to allow UAE-based travelers to reach stunning destinations at an affordable fare. With prices starting at AED 99 and AED 319, passengers will be greeted with pleasantly inexpensive fares.

Flights to Kuwait, located in the northwest corner of the Arabian Gulf, will be operated daily from Dhabi International Airport from October 30.

Both new routes will be served by an all-new Airbus A321neo aircraft which the carrier will receive later this year.

The announcement marks the first time Wizz Air Abu Dhabi has served a total of 34 destinations within a 5-hour flight radius of Abu Dhabi since the carrier’s launch in January 2021.
