Wizz Air Abu Dhabi has announced the launch of its latest routes from Abu Dhabi to Almaty and Nur Sultan in Kazakhstan, starting in mid-May. With the launch of Almaty and Nur Sultan, Wizz Air Abu Dhabi adds a further two routes to the 13 already on sale.

    The flight to Almaty will be operated twice a week on Mondays and Fridays, while Nur Sultan will be operated on Thursdays and Sundays.

    The new routes present an affordable opportunity for travellers to explore exciting destinations, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the culture of the gorgeous city of Almaty and discover the world’s youngest capital, Nur Sultan. Tickets are already on sale on wizzair.com and the airline’s mobile app, also available in Arabic, with fares starting as low as AED159 ($43).

    Commenting on the development, Wizz Air Abu Dhabi MD Kees Van Schaick said: “The new routes from Abu Dhabi to Almaty and Nur Sultan will encourage increased travel between the UAE and Kazakhstan through ultra-low-fare travel options. We are confident that the new routes will inspire desire to travel and open the doors to new cultural experiences.”

    Kazakhstan’s futuristic mega-cities, the capital city of Nur Sultan, and the country’s largest metropolis, Almaty have a lot to offer visitors. From its green valleys and mountains of Tian Shan, to the rolling steppes featuring azure blue lakes, and its remarkable skyline and impressive architectural masterpieces, there is something for everyone.

    Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, the UAE’s newest national airline, has a very young fleet composed of four brand new state-of-the-art Airbus A321neo aircraft, offering low fuel burn, emissions and noise footprint.

    The airline has also introduced a new era of sanitised travel across its network, with enhanced hygiene measures to ensure the health and safety of passengers and crew.  Click here to view Wizz Air’s new health and safety video.
