Of particular note and inspiration is the fact that the companies of the Wizz Air Group continue to actively pursue the strategy of expanding their route networks and offering their passengers ever more convenient and affordable air travel options in these particularly trying times and circumstances. All done with the emphasis on strictest compliance with the latest air travel safety and social distancing requirements that currently apply.

I wish to once again congratulate our dear partners on today’s commencement of sales on the Moscow – Abu Dhabi route, and to say that we are much looking forward to welcoming the inaugural flight at Vnukovo, slated for December 15, 2021”

The consular website of the country of destination is worth checking for information on the acceptance of different types of immunity cards, as the list is constantly growing. Wizz Air also recommends that before flying, travellers check the appliable requirements and, if necessary, renew their travel documents that are expired or about to expire soon.

This provides an extra layer of protection and peace of mind for passenger bookings during these uncertain times.
