Travel plans for a new destination? Head to Baku!
Travel plan to a unique destination of fusion of cultures offering a wide variety for everyone is on the radar. Wizz Air Abu Dhabi makes it easier for you to travel to Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, from 14th August. The twice-weekly service will operate on Tuesdays and Saturdays, with fares starting from Dh179 ($48). Tickets are already on sale via the Wizz Air website and app.
Azerbaijan is currently welcoming tourists from a select number of countries, including the UAE. Visitors must either show proof that they have been fully vaccinated or present a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival in the country. Azerbaijan is on Abu Dhabi’s Green List, meaning travellers do not need to quarantine upon their return to the UAE capital.
The new service brings Wizz Air Abu Dhabi’s network up to 29 destinations. Baku is a city like no other when it comes to hospitality, history, food and beverage. As restrictions across the world start to ease, we continue to provide more travel options for those with a desire to travel.
Known as the City of Winds, Baku is an intriguing mix of old and new. Its medieval, UNESCO listed old city, known locally as Icherisheher, sits adjacent to the imposing, ultra-modern Flame Towers and the distinctive Zaha Hadid-designed Heydar Aliyev Centre.
Home to twisting alleyways, artists’ workshops, traditional markets and authentic restaurants, the old city is encircled by 12th-century walls, while the newer parts of Baku offer a delightful blend of Gothic, baroque, neoclassical and art nouveau architecture, as well as grand boulevards lined with designer shops.
Fly away with the winds brought to you by Wizz Air Abu Dhabi.
