Wizz Air Abu Dhabi has added its first destination to South Asia with the launch of a service from the UAE capital to the Sri Lankan city of Mattala.
"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," highlighted Michael Berlouis, Managing Director of Wizz Air Abu Dhabi.
DV Chanaka, Sri Lankan State Minister of Aviation and Export Zones Development, said the low fares will benefit "Sri Lankan employee market in UAE".
"Further, the tourism sector in Sri Lanka will vastly grow with short and long-stay tourists arriving at the island while increasing connectivity between cities and other airlines around Wizz Air schedules. I am positive that the route will succeed and wish Wizz Air a successful air operation here in Sri Lanka."
The Wizz Air Abu Dhabi network also provides ultra-low fares to Alexandria (Egypt), Amman (Jordan), Aqaba (Jordan), Athens (Greece), Baku (Azerbaijan), Belgrade (Serbia), Kutaisi (Georgia), Manama (Bahrain), Muscat (Oman), Sarajevo (Bosnia), Sohag (Egypt), Tel-Aviv (Israel), Tirana (Albania) and Yerevan (Armenia) among others.
