Wizz to begin Abu Dhabi airline in late 2020

LCC Wizz Airlines has signed an agreement to commence operations from Abu Dhabi in he second half of 2020.

The airline will offer a range of routes both locally and to Europe in direct competition with airlines like FlyDubai and Flynas.

It’s the first time a European airline has ventured so directly into foreign territory and requires the airline to obtain a local AOC, which it has now applied for.

Other airlines will be watching this venture closely, not least of which will be RyanAir, whose new corporate group structure would enable it to set up its own operation if it sees an opportunity.
