People will be able to fly from Dubai to Hungarian capital Budapest for less than €75 when low-cost airline Wizz Air begins operating from the brand new Dubai World Central Al Maktoum International Airport on October 28.

The announcement was made by Wizz Air CEO József Váradi, who added: “We are very pleased to be the first European low fares airline operating at Dubai World Central and expect to carry at least 250,000 passengers on our UAE network in the first year of operations.”

Wizz Air will be one of the two first operators to fly to Dubai World Central with four times weekly flights from its home base of Budapest on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. 

Subject to regulatory approvals, the carrier also plans to add Dubai World Central flights to other central European airports of Kiev, Bucharest and Sofia.

Dubai World Central was completed at the end of 2012 and its passenger terminal formally opens to scheduled traffic with the start of the winter schedule.

Dubai Airports CEO Paul Griffiths said: “A new era in Dubai’s already proud aviation story is set to begin”

And Jost Lammers, CEO at Budapest Airport commented: “The hugely popular destination of Dubai and the brand new Dubai World Central Airport will undoubtedly be a big hit with our passengers.”
