Wizz Air Abu Dhabi adds second Russian destination to its network

The UAE-based low-budget carrier will start flying to Krasnodar in February 2022

Wizz Air Abu Dhabi has announced that the Russian city of Krasnodar is the latest addition to its growing network.

The airline, which joins its fellow regional carriers in increasing connectivity with Russia, already flies to Moscow, making Krasnodar its second Russian destination. Flights will operate twice a week on Mondays and Fridays. 

An important cultural and historical hub, Krasnodar is located in southern Russia on the Kuban River, within close proximity to the Black Sea. 

Wizz Air Abu Dhabi managing director Kees Van Schaick said: “Yet again, we are happy to be adding rapidly to our route network – we are really ramping up operations since travel restrictions eased in and out of the UAE’s capital. 

“Krasnodar brings another exciting opportunity for travellers to explore eclectic and culturally diverse cities at ultra-low fares. Travel between Russia and the UAE has always been popular, and we’re pleased to now be able to serve this demand to two of Russia’s major cities – Moscow and Krasnodar. We will be continuing to add to our network and look forward to announcing new routes soon.”


Aerodynamics is the managing сompany of Krasnodar, Sochi and Anapa Airports. Its CEO, Alexey Starostin, said: “We are pleased to welcome a new foreign carrier at Krasnodar International Airport.

“We are confident that the new route will be popular not only among residents of the Krasnodar Region, but also among residents of nearby cities due to the convenient location of Krasnodar airport and its catchment area.”

Since commencing operations in January 2021, with the addition of Krasnodar, Wizz Air Abu Dhabi now operates 34 routes.
