Wizz Air Abu Dhabi welcomes international travellers to Abu Dhabi
Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, the newest national airline of the UAE, is all set to continue enabling exciting travel opportunities from Sunday for international travellers looking to explore the UAE capital without having to quarantine.
The Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee has approved removing the need to quarantine for all vaccinated travellers arriving into Abu Dhabi from all international destinations, effective from Sunday, 5th September 2021.
Before boarding to Abu Dhabi, all travellers must show a negative PCR test result from within 48 hours of departure. All travellers must take a free-of-charge PCR test on arrival at Abu Dhabi international airport. Vaccinated citizens, residents and visitors arriving from green list destinations must take another PCR test on day 6, if staying in the emirate. From other destinations, they must take PCR tests on days 4 and 8, if staying in the emirate.
Since launching at the start of the year, Wizz Air Abu Dhabi has announced a wide range of exciting routes to and from the UAE capital, including Athens, Alexandria, Bahrain, Belgrade, Odesa, Sarajevo, Thessaloniki, Tirana and a number of others.
Kees Van Schaick, Managing Director of Wizz Air Abu Dhabi commented, “Wizz Air Abu Dhabi is perfectly positioned to provide ultra-low fare, worry-free and efficient travel options for people looking to explore all the remarkable attractions that the UAE capital has to offer. We very much welcome the changes to the quarantine rules, which will continue to ensure maximum safety but also provide people with the freedom and flexibility to travel and experience new places and cultures. We look forward to seeing more people enjoy our flights in the coming period.”
Travellers arriving to Abu Dhabi and immediately continuing their trip to Dubai or another Northern Emirate are exempt from quarantine provided that they inform the medical authorities accordingly upon arrival and travel using the official Airport Taxi.
Unvaccinated citizens, residents and visitors, including those exempt from vaccination, arriving into Abu Dhabi from green list destinations must take further PCR tests on days 6 and 9, without quarantine. Unvaccinated citizens, residents and visitors arriving from other destinations must quarantine for 10 days and take another PCR test on day 9.
PCR tests costs 50 AED in the UAE capital. Everyone on board of Wizz Air Abu Dhabi flights will have been tested prior to boarding and approved to travel in line with Abu Dhabi Airport guidelines. All Wizz Air crew are fully vaccinated, said a press release issued by the airline on Sunday.
