Wizz Air’s Abu Dhabi subsidiary has begun flying to Sri Lanka.
The first destination in South Asia for the ultra-low-cost airline will be served three times each week.
Airbus A321neo aircraft with 239 seats will fly to Mattala in south Sri Lanka, with prices starting at AED179.
Sri Lanka’s Minister of Aviation and Export Zone Development, D V Chanaka, said: “The airport is strategically surrounded by the most preferred tourist attractions in the island which makes it easy for the tourists to get about be it the sandy beaches, hill country, wildlife parks, etc.
“With Wizz Air’s low air fare rates we also anticipate the Sri Lankan employee market in UAE to vastly benefit from travel between the two regions which is expected to be extremely economical.
“Further, the tourism sector in Sri Lanka will vastly grow with short and long-stay tourists arriving to the island while increasing connectivity between cities and other airlines around Wizz Air schedules.”
Michael Berlouis, managing director of Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, said: “Sri Lanka is an exciting destination that has everything; beautiful beaches, a diverse cultural heritage, historical sites dating back 1000s of years and even a UNESCO listed World Heritage Site.
“It is truly a must-see travel destination. We are proud to be providing our customers ever more convenient, affordable opportunities for relaxation and adventure.”
Egypt, Jordan, Greece, Serbia, Georgia, and Israel are among the countries that Wizz Air Abu Dhabi now serves.
