The Hungarian company Wizz Air will fly to Moscow again from October!

After the outbreak of the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24, the Hungarian low-cost carrier, Wizz Air, suspended all flights to Moscow. However, it looks like they will change policy in October, although it seems unlikely that the Kremlin and Kyiv will reach an agreement by then.

According Reuters, the Hungarian low-cost airline, Wizz Air, will resume flights from the United Arab Emirates to Moscow in October. The company suspended all services to Russia after the Russian army attacked Ukraine five months ago. The planes will take off in the capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi.

The flights will depart daily from October 3 and will be operated by Wizz Air Abu Dhabi. Fares will start from 359 AED (95 EUR).

Wizz Air announced in October 2021 that its Abu Dhabi-Moscow flights would begin in December of that year. However, they suspended all flights to Russia on February 27. “Other Emirati carriers, including Emirates, continued to operate services to Russia following the invasion of Ukraine,” Reuters wrote.

Wizz Air Abu Dhabi is a joint venture between Abu Dhabi’s sovereign wealth fund ADQ and the European airline. It is based in Abu Dhabi and is a registered carrier in the United Arab Emirates. Since the company is registered there, no EU sanctions apply to it.

As previously reported, a Wizz Air plane has caused panic among the residents of Skiathos, Greece. The island’s runway is very close to a coastal road, so many people regularly spot planes there. However, one plane landed so low that it almost shaved the heads of passers-by. A flight specialist said that people standing so close to a track were fools, but the company started an internal investigation into the matter.
