Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, the ultra-low-fare national airline of the UAE, has commenced operations on the exciting new route of Ankara, the second largest city in Turkiye and a modern European metropolis with a rich historical heritage. The new route provides hassle-free, point-to-point travel for tourists and residents in both the UAE and Turkiye.
