Egypt visas are free for Sharm el Sheikh and US$25 for anywhere else. Just hand over the cash, and you get a sticker to put in your passport... absolutely minimal form filling, 1 minute processing time, and almost zero chance of rejection.... it is really just a $25 admission fee, and sufficiently cheap and easy to obtain that it's not of concern.

Saudi wants $80 plus insurance and processing fees... which comes to $120 per person in total... enough to make you think twice... unless you are in transit for under 96 hours in which case it becomes free and drastically simpler. Is there no way for Wizz to sponsor these 96 hour transit visas ?

Saudia seem to be having no issue selling seats on their new Gatwick & Birmingham routes, I suspect Wizzair flights will be much cheaper so you will be quids in anyway.

Perhaps a large number donít need Visas?

The "new state-of-the-art A321" in the Wizz Abu Dhabi announcement is in fact a 6 years old 321ceo.

The NEO engine does not perform as well as the CEO engine in Hot Dry climates as previously reported https://www.ch-aviation.com/portal/n...gine-derisking

Routes to Moldova are being restarted from December 2023. With the Russia-Ukraine war at something close to stalemate, it would appear the geopolitical risk in Moldova is limited

Is signoff from ENAC in Italy enough for Wizzair to fly to India ? Or is signoff from the Indian DGCA necessary as well ? I haven't heard of any approvals yet from the Indian authorities

India's 7 biggest airlines all want to expand internationally- that means new reciprocal agreements being signed. Can't see it being a great issue with India's desire to have a louder voice on the international stage, more connectivity comes hand in hand with that.
