Wizz Air Abu Dhabi announces first direct flight to Tel Aviv

Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, the newest national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has announced its first flight to Tel Aviv set to depart on April 18, 2021, following the announcement that Israel has been added to the green list (a list of ‘green’ countries, regions and territories that you can travel from if planning a trip to Abu Dhabi), meaning travellers will no longer need to quarantine upon arrival in Abu Dhabi.

Tickets are already on sale on and the airline’s mobile app, which is also available in Arabic, with fares starting as low as AED 99. The flights from Abu Dhabi to Tel Aviv will be available three times per week in April, moving to daily flights in May.

Kees Van Schaick, Managing Director of Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, says: “In light of the recently eased restrictions, I’m delighted to announce the date of the first WIZZ flight from Abu Dhabi to Tel Aviv later this month. The connection between the two cities is a historic moment – the link between the UAE and Israel will further contribute to the tourism sector and help to diversify the local economy, while bringing new low-fare business and leisure opportunities for travellers.”
