The lost cost carrier is looking to expand in Saudi Arabia. Wizz Air is a joint venture between Switzerland and Abu Dhabi Government. The airline’s headoffice is in Switzerland and under the banner of Wizz Air Holdings plc. The airlines was inaugrated on January 15th, flights cost starting from 129 dirhams only ($35).

“The waiting is almost over for Abu Dhabi fans of our ultra-low fare airline,” said Kees Van Schaick, managing director of Wizz Air Abu Dhabi.

The airline already has plans to add more routes, with flights to Armenia, Cyprus, Egypt, Georgia, and Ukraine set to be launched in due course.

The Dutchman would not reveal when the airline aims to become profitable or break even, but he did say that Saudi Arabia was among its target markets, with its route map extending to those within five hours flying from the UAE capital.

“We very much look forward to operating in Saudi. When? I will not speculate, but we very much like to operate to Saudi. To and from Saudi we will be able to stimulate demand for our type of air traffic and that will be good for Saudi and good for the UAE,” he said.
