Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, the ultra-low-fare national airline of the UAE, has started operations on the exciting new route of Ankara. The new route provides hassle-free, point-to-point travel for tourists and residents in both the UAE and Turkey.

The flight from Abu Dhabi to Ankara operates on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, with ultra-low-fares available from Dh199*.

The national airline now flies to more than 36 destinations in 25 different countries and is ready to accelerate and expand operations further in 2023.

Ankara, the heart of Turkey and Central Anatolia, boasts plenty of shopping malls, state houses and a bustling nightlife, with unique opportunities to experience its well-preserved architecture.

Exciting attractions include old castles and ruins to two extraordinary monuments central to the Turkish story – the Anıtkabir, a tribute to modern Turkey founder, and the Museum of Anatolian Civilisations – in addition to a vibrant arts and cultural scene.
