Abu Dhabi’s Wizz Air to double Greece flights

The airline currently services Thessaloniki and Athens

UAE-based carrier Wizz Air Abu Dhabi has announced that it will commence twice-weekly flights to two Greek cities in the coming months.

 The airline currently flies to Thessaloniki every Thursday and, as of July, will fly twice a week on Thursdays and Sundays. Meanwhile, the current service to Athens every Friday will also be doubled from June onwards with the addition of another flight on Mondays. 

 UAE residents have been able to enter Greece without being quarantined since 19 April. They must provide a negative PCR test taken up to 72 hours before the arrival, or hold a certificate of vaccination in English issued by a public authority. 

Wizz Air Abu Dhabi managing director Kees Van Schaick said: “With travel restrictions easing for UAE residents wanting to fly to Greece and the summer heat of the UAE fast approaching, Wizz Air Abu Dhabi is ideally positioned to offer safe, efficient, hassle-free, ultra-low fare travel options. Athens and Thessaloniki provide incredible historic and cultural experiences and we look forward to enabling people to witness all that Greece has to offer.”
