Dubai: Dubai World Central’s (DWC) first passenger airline is offering fares as low as €25 (Dh125) on its inaugural flights.
Low-cost European carrier Wizz Air will fly to Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Ukraine from the new Al Maktoum International Airport on October 27. Seats to Budapest, Bucharest and Sofia start from €25 while Kiev fares begin at €40.
“Low fares such as these are truly insane — we’re losing our heads over these fares and so are our passengers when they flock to our website to book as many seats as possible on our first flights departing from Dubai World Central airport to different European cities,” said Daniel de Carvalho, spokesman for Wizz Air from Switzerland.
Passengers don’t have to worry about the long commute to DWC. A spokesperson for Dubai Airports told XPRESS: “A shuttle will operate between DWC and the Metro station at Ibn Battuta Mall. Dubai Airports is working with the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) and the passenger terminal will open with appropriate public transport connections.” More info
