Wizz Air Abu Dhabi will fly two times per week from the UAE capital to the island of Santorini in Greece.
With Greece and the United Arab Emirates having opened a travel corridor earlier in May, vaccinated travellers can visit the alluring Aegean archipelago without needing to quarantine.
Wizz Air Abu Dhabi will fly to Santorini from 2 July 2021 twice per week, every Monday and Friday.
When returning to Abu Dhabi, UAE residents and citizens who have been vaccinated for at least 28 days, and have received a vaccine report on the Alhosn app, will be able to fly into the UAE from Greece without having to follow quarantine restrictions. Passengers will have to take a PCR test 72 hours before departure, alongside taking another PCR test on arrival into the UAE, and another on the sixth day after arriving. Children 12 years of age and younger are exempted.
Kees Van Schaick, managing director of Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, said: “With its iconic whitewashed villages and charming blue domed roofs, it’s no surprise that Santorini is an ever-popular destination for travellers the world over. And now, with the UAE and Greece having agreed a travel corridor, Wizz Air Abu Dhabi is delivering safe, efficient, hassle-free, and ultra-low fare travel options for UAE residents looking for a Hellenistic holiday.”
