Abu Dhabi to Maldives: Wizz Air Abu Dhabi to launch low-cost flights

The airline also announced a new route to Kuwait City.

Travelling to the Maldives from Abu Dhabi looks set to become a lot easier and cheaper with Wizz Air Abu Dhabi’s latest route announcement.

The ultra-low fare airline will be offering four flights per week from the capital to the idyllic island’s capital of Malé from 4 October 2022.

Taking to the skies every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, fares start from as little as AED 319 which can be purchased from Wizz Air Abu Dhabi or the airline’s app.

But should the island that boasts sandy, white beaches, spectacular sunsets and colourful reefs not be your idea of a perfect getaway, the airline also announced a new route to Kuwait.

Starting from AED 99 per flight, the new route to Kuwait City is the airline’s fifth destination in the Gulf.

Speaking on the announcement, Owain Jones, Development Officer at Wizz Air said: “With the arrival of our fifth Airbus aircraft in October, we are delighted to enhance connectivity with our neighbour countries across the GCC with flights to Kuwait, as well as providing our customers with affordable flights to the Maldives.

“We are particularly excited about the launch of flights to the Maldives, a tropical paradise destination high up on travellers’ bucket list. The WIZZ team looks forward to welcoming customers on board our young and green aircraft very soon.”
