Wizz Air Abu Dhabi Expands Its Ever-Growing Network with a New Route to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

The national airline enhances connectivity from the UAE and meets commitment for more convenient, high quality and affordable travel for the region


15 December 2022, Abu Dhabi, UAE: Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, the ultra-low-fare national airline of the UAE, is launching an exciting new route from Abu Dhabi to Medina in Saudi Arabia. Launching in February 2023, the new route will provide affordable, hassle-free travel for tourists and residents in both the UAE and Saudi Arabia with daily flights providing unique travel opportunities on a convenient WIZZ flight schedule. Tickets are already on sale on wizzair.com and the airline’s mobile app, with fares starting from AED 179 *.


Medina, one of Islam’s two holiest cities, is a key destination for millions of pilgrims travelling for Hajj or Umrah, and boasts breath-taking views and architecture. Known as ‘The Enlightened City’, Medina is home to Al Masjid an Nabawi, the Prophet Muhammad’s Mosque, and is a cradle of Islamic culture and civilisation with prominent mosques and landmarks to visit.


Michael Berlouis, Managing Director of Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, said: “We are excited to announce daily flights to the historical city of Medina, a must-see travel destination steeped in religious history, with countless exciting attractions. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our important partners for their support throughout the process, especially the Abu Dhabi Department of Culture and Tourism, the Saudi Tourism Authority, the Saudi National Air Connectivity Programme, and the Governments of the UAE and Saudi Arabia. This new route demonstrates our commitment to supporting the booming tourism sector in both the UAE and the Kingdom with our ultra-low fares further strengthening connectivity. Our WIZZ team is looking forward to welcoming you onboard our modern, young and sustainable aircraft soon.”


Khalil Lamrabet, Chief Executive Officer of the Air Connectivity Program, said: “With Wizz Air deploying increased route capacity to meet rising tourism demand the carrier is taking another step toward growing its operations in Saudi Arabia. In supporting direct travel within the region, we are strengthening point-to-point connectivity and unlocking affordable travel opportunities for our guests, allowing them to experience one of the Arab world’s holiest and most treasured cities in comfort, ease, and style. We look forward to exploring additional air routes as we work to build market supply for the Kingdom’s burgeoning tourism sector.”


Eng. Sofiene Abdesssalem, Managing Director of Tibah Airports Operations Company, said: “We are pleased that Wizz Air is joining our airline network by operating daily flights between Madinah and Abu Dhabi. This move demonstrates Tibah Airport Operation Company's commitment and strategy to expand travel options, strengthen global connectivity for Madinah Airport, one of the Kingdom’s main gateways, and provide convenient and affordable travel alternatives for our customers. We aim to provide our travellers with a wide range of destinations and routes, and we are constantly seeking out new air carriers to connect with and diversify Madinah Airport's connectivity portfolio while continually enhancing service levels and elevating the customer experience at the airport. We are excited about future growth in 2023 and look forward to expanding our network with Wizz Air.” 


Wizz Air’s expansion is a sign of confidence in Vision 2030 and ‘destination Saudi’ and builds on the existing routes network.

 

Strategically located in the UAE, Wizz Air Abu Dhabi provides ultra-low fare, hassle-free and efficient travel options to Alexandria (Egypt), Amman (Jordan), Aqaba (Jordan), Athens (Greece), Baku (Azerbaijan), Belgrade (Serbia), Kutaisi (Georgia), Manama (Bahrain), Muscat (Oman), Salalah (Oman), Santorini (Greece), Sarajevo (Bosnia), Sohag (Egypt), Tel-Aviv (Israel), Tirana (Albania) and Yerevan (Armenia) among others. 
The airline has a young fleet composed of eight brand new state-of-the-art Airbus A321neo aircraft, offering the lowest fuel burn, emissions, and noise footprint. Wizz Air Abu Dhabi has the lowest environmental footprint among its competitors in the region, supporting the airline’s long-term commitment to sustainability.
