Wizz Air Abu Dhabi adds a new state-of-the-art Airbus A321neo aircraft to its fleet
The launch of the Ankara route falls in line with the national airline’s expansion plans and will be operated by the fifth aircraft that recently joined the fleet
Abu Dhabi, UAE: Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, the ultra-low-fare national airline of the UAE, has launched its latest routes to Turkey’s capital and the second most populous city in the country, Ankara. This step reaffirms the airline’s commitment to provide travellers with the opportunity to explore numerous experiences across many destinations within its network.
The new routes will enable Wizz Air Abu Dhabi to offer tourists and residents hassle-free, affordable travel in both the UAE and throughout the region. The national airline now flies to more than 36 destinations within a five-hour flight time radius of Abu Dhabi, since launching in January 2021. The flight to Ankara will commence on 19 January 2023 and will operate on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Tickets are already on sale on wizzair.com and the airline’s mobile app, with fares starting as low as AED 149*.
Ankara, the capital of Turkey, is a modern European city with a rich historical heritage. While there are plenty of shopping malls, state houses and a bustling nightlife, it also offers a unique opportunity to experience its well-preserved architecture. From old castles and ruins to two extraordinary monuments central to the Turkish story – the Anıtkabir, a tribute to modern Turkey’s founder, and the Museum of Anatolian Civilisations – there is also a vibrant arts and cultural scene.
Michael Berlouis, Managing Director of Wizz Air Abu Dhabi said: “We look forward to expanding Wizz Air Abu Dhabi operations even further by adding Ankara to our ever-growing network. The new route will be operated by our fifth state-of-the-art Airbus A321neo aircraft which has been added to our fleet.
