Re: Next destinations from WizzAir from Abu Dhabi?

The routes from BUD, CTA, CLJ, OTP, KTW and SOF have always been operated or have been supposed to be operated by W6. So it's easy for Wizz to let the routes simply be flown to DXB instead of AUH. All other destinations except Bari are flown by 5W. The reason for the move could be the expo. I am in ...

For achieving 500 planes Wizz needs to double its current outstanding order and get additional 227 planes.

The Wizz Air Abu Dhabi plane A6-WZD was flown to Al Ain 5 days ago.

Looks like lower parking costs than in AUH. Planespotters.com says it's parked. Could be because of the low flying demand to AUH due to the strict entry regulations of Abu Dhabi.
