Wizz Air Abu Dhabi to launch Baku flights in August

The new Azerbaijan route takes the low-cost carrier’s tally to 29 destinations

Starting from 14 August 2021, Wizz Air Abu Dhabi will begin flying to Baku in Azerbaijan.

The launch of the new route will see the airline now flying to 29 destinations. Azerbaijan is one of the countries currently  included on Abu Dhabi’s recently updated green list meaning that travellers will not be required to quarantine upon arrival or when returning to the UAE’s capital.

The flight to Baku will operate twice a week, on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Tickets are on sale at the airline’s website with fares starting from as low as AED179.

The new route to the capital city of Azerbaijan opens up yet another opportunity for travellers to explore amazing destinations from Abu Dhabi. Baku is positioned on the coast of the beautiful Caspian Sea and is the most southern point of Azerbaijan. Located at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and the Middle East, the city’s heritage, leisure and architecture is a compelling blend of cultures.

Speaking about the launch, Wizz Air Abu Dhabi managing director Kees Van Schaick said: “We are once again adding a new and exciting destination to our route network. Baku is a city like no other with a unique fusion of cultures. As restrictions across the world start to ease, we continue to provide more travel options for those with a desire to travel.”

Wizz Air Abu Dhabi has the youngest fleet composed of four brand new state-of-the-art Airbus A321neo aircraft, offering the lowest fuel burn, emissions and noise footprint.

Elsewhere in Europe, the airline recently launched flights to the Greek islands of Mykonos, Crete and Rhodes. As a result of the travel corridor between Greece and the UAE, passengers from the UAE can fly into Greece without having to quarantine on arrival.
