Wizz Air announced that it will start services to Dubai World Central Airport from Budapest (Hungary), Bucharest (Romania), Kiev (Ukraine) and Sofia (Bulgaria) starting from 28 October 2013.
Wizz Air now connects over 30 countries with its state of the art fleet of 40 Airbus A320 aircraft.
The UAE has displayed one of the most impressive developments in the world over the past few decades to become the most wanted tourism destination.
Wizz Air will be the first European low fares airline operating to Dubai and a launch customer for Dubai World Central. The Dubai World Central Passenger Terminal will open in October for scheduled passenger flights and is planned to become the city’s main airport hub until the mid 2020s, when with five runways and a capacity of 160 million yearly passengers it will be the largest airport infrastructure in the world.

Speaking in Dubai today, József Váradi, Chief Executive Officer of Wizz Air, said: “Today is a great day for Wizz Air as we are announcing our entry to the UAE with rock bottom air fares that will boost tourism and create many new jobs. Flying between Europe and Dubai for as low as €74.49 is truly unprecedented. Wizz Air is pleased to be the launch customer and the first European low fares airline operating at Dubai World Central. I expect Wizz Air will carry at least 250,000 passengers on our UAE network in the first year of operations. I anticipate we will announce more exciting routes and more low fares to Dubai as we move forward with our expansion plans.”
