Low-cost airline Wizz Air Abu Dhabi is kicking off the New Year with a Dh1 fare deal.

The airline is offering 2,021 return tickets from Abu Dhabi to Greece for Dh1, on a range of flights to Thessaloniki and Athens. All seats on Wizz Air Abu Dhabi’s inaugural service to the Greek capital on Friday, January 15 will be sold for Dh1.

The tickets are available on a first-come first-serve basis and can be purchased on Sunday, January 10 and Monday, January 11 on www.wizzair.com and the airline’s mobile app.

“As the UAE’s new national airline, offering a new type of air travel, we are welcoming the New Year in style,” says Kees Van Schaick, managing director of Wizz Air Abu Dhabi. “As an ultra-low fare airline, we want to provide travellers with the opportunity to visit exciting destinations for super accessible prices. We expect these tickets to sell out fast.”

Wizz Air Abu Dhabi's initial route network includes Athens, Thessaloniki, Alexandria, Kutaisi, Larnaca, Odesa and Yerevan, with further destinations to be added in the coming months.

Its fleet is composed of four new Airbus A321neo aircraft, giving it the lowest environmental footprint in the region.

All passengers flying to Greece must have a negative PCR test, taken 72 hours prior to their arrival, and must agree to undergo random testing during their stay. International travellers are required to quarantine for seven days upon arrival and must fill in a passenger locator form prior to departure.

The country has extended its nation-wide lockdown until Thursday, January 21, which includes a night-time curfew. Travel between regions in Greece is also restricted and masks are mandatory in public.
