UAE’s budget airline, Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, is launching two direct flights per week to the famous Greek island.

If you’re looking for an affordable summer getaway, then worry no more, as vaccinated passengers can now travel from the UAE to Santorini for under AED400.

Launching two flights per week from the Abu Dhabi, budget airline Wizz Air Abu Dhabi will fly on Mondays and Fridays, starting on Friday, July 2, 2021.

Tickets start from Dh399 one-way, inclusive of taxes, with additional charges for check-in baggage and in-flight carry ons.

As the UAE and Greece established a vaccine corridor earlier this month, passengers can travel easily without quarantining in either location.

In a statement, Managing Director of Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, Kees van Schaick, 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 to 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.”

Tourists will need to show their vaccination card or a negative PCR test taken no more than 72 hours before arrival. The second vaccine dose should have been administered at least two weeks prior to flying to Santorini. Those returning back to the UAE are also required to take a PCR test and other necessary testing needed in their emirate of residence.
