Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air is planning to increase its weekly number of flights to Dubai from twice to seven times per week from October 27, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.

“Dubai has become one of the most well-liked winter destinations in the last couple of years. The summer within the winter experience will now be available daily to our passengers,” András Radó, Wizz Airʼs communications manager, commented. “The great popularity of our Dubai flights has been maintained among Hungarian travelers ever since their launch in 2013,” he added.

Budapest-based Wizz Air, the biggest Central and East European low-cost airline, will increase the use of its Airbus A321neo aircraft, one of the newest and most modern models, on the route.

The A321neo has an advantage over previous aircraft types as its environmental impact is significantly smaller, claims the press release. Noise pollution as well as nitrogen oxide levels of the A321neo are 50% lower compared to older aircrafts, while it also requires 20% less fuel. Wizz Air now claims to be the most environmentally friendly European airline, as it has ordered 256 Airbus A321neo aircraft; it says it has already put three of them to use at Budapestʼs Ferenc Liszt International Airport. 

“We are proud that we are able to fly our passengers to one of the most modern cities in the Arab world on state-of-the-art airplanes, with our habitual high quality of on-board services and low prices from October on,” Radó added.
