Wizz Air, Europe’s fastest growing and most sustainable airline, has launched its third flight to Saudi Arabia from Budapest, following an announcement in January. The new Middle East destination of Dammam is now available to travellers at an affordable price and without connecting flights.
Tickets for the twice-weekly flight can be purchased via the Wizz Air website and the airline’s app for as little as HUF 7,790.
The airline started the year 2023 with two flights to Saudi Arabia, now adding another exotic destination. Until now, the Saudi Arabian capital Riyadh and the gateway city of Jeddah have been available, and from today, Dammam is also available.
The airline started the year 2023 with two flights to Saudi Arabia, now adding another exotic destination. Until now, the Saudi Arabian capital Riyadh and the gateway city of Jeddah have been available, and from today, Dammam is also available. A dazzling port city on the shores of the Persian Gulf, Dammam is home to a wealth of cultural attractions, museums and architectural masterpieces. Following the discovery of oil, it has now been transformed into a modern metropolis with state-of-the-art infrastructure and a vibrant economy.
The three Saudi flights to Budapest are part of Wizz Air’s ambitious target to fly one million passengers to the country this year. The airline is supporting Saudi Arabia’s Vision 30 programme, which aims to triple passenger traffic to the country by 2030.
“We are delighted that with the launch of the Dammam flight, our airline now connects Saudi Arabia with Budapest on three routes. Passengers departing from Hungary will now have a more accessible, affordable travel alternative to explore the wonderful cities the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has to offer. The Wizz Air team is excited to welcome passengers on its flights to the city of Dammam!”
said Zsuzsa Trubek, Communications Manager at Wizz Air.
“As the capital of Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province, Dammam encompasses both the tranquil atmosphere of the Arabian Gulf and its unique, bustling infrastructure. Wizz Air’s flights to this modern metropolis are another fruit of our close cooperation with Saudi Arabia. We have no reason to doubt the success of these routes, as the country is becoming increasingly popular from a tourism perspective,” said Balázs Bogáts, Director of Flight Development at Budapest Airport.
