Starting from 4 October, Wizz Air Abu Dhabi has launched its first flight to Malé, capital of the Maldives.
The route will be operated four times a week in October 2022, every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, increasing to six times per week in November and operating daily from December.
The launch of the new route falls in line with the airline’s expansion plans and will be operated by its fifth and latest aircraft, an Airbus A321neo, which offers the lowest fuel burn, emissions and noise footprint.”
The new route unlocks affordable travel options both within the UAE and for passengers travelling from Central and Eastern Europe via Wizz Air’s network.
Wizz Air Abu Dhabi managing director Michael Berlouis said: “Offering the ideal escape for relaxation, self-discovery and picture perfect moments, it’s no surprise that the Maldives is an ever-popular destination. In line with our commitment to offer our customers world class low-cost travel experiences, we are excited to now be flying to this tropical paradise, unlocking new travel options for those not only within the UAE, but also for self-connecting passengers.
“As we continue with our expansion plans and work towards making Abu Dhabi a hub for aviation, the new route will help us connect more international tourists with the city and give them the opportunity to stop off and explore the amazing experiences it has to offer."
Maldives Minister of Tourism Abdulla Mausoom added: “With the extensive global connections UAE provides, the new route from Abu Dhabi will strengthen connectivity between Maldives and the rest of the world. And with this enhanced connectivity between UAE and Maldives, I welcome Emiratis and residents to travel to Maldives and experience the Maldivian hospitality. Thanks to the direct flights between Abu Dhabi and Maldives, more people can take advantage of this convenient link.”
