The Pakistani government has granted permission to Wizz Air Abu Dhabi to begin operations in the country. A spokesperson for the Civil Aviation of Pakistan said that the country has resolved all legal matters with the United Arab Emirates. This will allow Wizz Air Abu Dhabi to start operating flights to and from Pakistan.
The spokesperson continued by saying that no response has been given by the government of the United Arab Emirates. The government of Pakistan, however, is trying to get permission from Wizz Air to assist in providing more convenience to those passengers traveling to and from the country.
Wizz Air Abu Dhabi already operates an extensive set of routes from the city in the United Arab Emirates. Currently, the airline’s network in the country operates 11 different routes to 10 different countries. These destinations include Alexandria, Egypt, Athens, Greece, and Yerevan, Armenia, among others.
Wizz Air Abu Dhabi has also operated the Airbus A321neo for these routes since the beginning of these operations. At the beginning of the Abu Dhabi operations, the Chairman of Wizz Air Abu Dhabi and Chief Executive of the Wizz Air Group said,
“Our state-of-the-art Airbus A321neo aircraft, as well as our enhanced protective measures, will ensure the best possible sanitary conditions for travelers. Wizz Air is the lowest-cost producer operating the youngest and most economically efficient fleet of aircraft with the lowest environmental footprint. I’m confident Wizz Air will make a profound impact on the United Arab Emirates’ economic development and the ramp-up of its tourism industry.”
This established network of routes will provide a large opportunity for Pakistani travelers to travel to Abu Dhabi or connect through its network.
