Aqaba Airports Company Chairman Nidal Al-Majali said that Wizz Air’s Aqaba–Abu Dhabi route will have two flights per week.

He confirmed that the service will entice a large number of Jordanians based in the UAE to use the low-cost flights to visit Jordan on a regular basis and to spend the weekend in the Kingdom. It is also an opportunity for Emiratis to enjoy what Aqaba has to offer.

Majali said that the route confirms the confidence of global airlines in Aqaba's location and as a tourist attraction at a time when the Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority is working to attract new low-cost airlines to boost tourism figures.
