Wizz Air and Abu Dhabi Airports have celebrated the arrival of the airline’s first scheduled Hungary flight to Abu Dhabi International Airport.
The inaugural Wizz Air route from Bucharest will be followed in September by flights from Sofia, Katowice and Cluj-Napoca. With these services, Wizz Air will connect these exciting European cities with Abu Dhabi.
George Michalopoulos, Chief Commercial Officer of Wizz Air, says: “’I’m delighted to celebrate the first scheduled Wizz Air flight to Abu Dhabi. Wizz Air is committed to growing the airline’s network to the capital of the United Arab Emirates. Our new sanitising protocols will give our customers the confidence that they can safely rely on Wizz Air’s ultra-low fares to visit Abu Dhabi on board one of the world’s greenest fleet. Wizz Air’s ultra-low fares and route network will contribute to the further growth of Abu Dhabi’s tourism sector.”
The celebration coincides with a new dawn of intensified sanitisation measures, which have recently begun at Wizz Air. The airline introduced a range of enhanced hygiene measures, to ensure the health and safety of its passengers and crew.
As part of these new protocols, throughout the flight, both cabin crew and passengers are required to wear facemasks, with cabin crew also required to wear gloves. Wizz Air’s aircraft are regularly put through an industry-leading disinfection process with an antiviral solution and, following WIZZ’s stringent daily cleaning schedule, all of the airline’s aircraft are further disinfected overnight with the same antiviral solution.
Abu Dhabi Airports recently announced the introduction of Wellness Ambassadors at Abu Dhabi International Airport. The team of specially trained service professionals support passengers by answering common questions relating to keeping healthy during travel, encourage social distancing amongst travellers, monitor the regular sanitisation of surfaces, communicate testing and isolation procedures, and providing hand sanitiser and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as masks and gloves to passengers.
