Wizz Air Abu Dhabi Wants To Fly To India Next Year

One more airline could soon join the list of carriers serving the very busy and lucrative India-UAE sector. Wizz Air is eying the Indian market and could soon be deploying flights to the subcontinent destinations from its base in Abu Dhabi. Every major Indian and Middle Eastern carrier already flies between the two regions, and Wizz Air’s entry will only expand the choices for passengers flying the route.

According to the Khaleej Times, the ultra-low-cost carrier is in the process of getting regulatory approvals from the governments in the Indian subcontinent. If the permissions are granted, Wizz Air could start operations in the region as early as next year.

The report quotes Kees Van Schaick, managing director of Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, as saying, “We have all the approvals from the UAE side, and now we’re in the middle of the process of getting regulatory approvals from the subcontinent countries. It’s up to the destination markets to approve that. All the bilateral services agreements are in place. It is a matter of finalizing documentary and regulatory approvals, and then we are good to go there as well. We will see that happen sometime in 2022.”

The VFR segment of passenger traffic has bolstered Wizz Air’s hold in Europe. The budget carrier plans to do the same by capturing a market share in the ever-important UAE-Indian subcontinent sector.
