Thumbs up WizzAir Abu Dhabi.

Hi there everyone...

Please, does anyone have the T&C of WizzAir Abu Dhabi ?

Any information regarding the company is highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

It's 💩.
FOs make more money next door than captains at Wizz Abu Dhabi. But if you need the job, go for it.

I never worked at the Abu Dhabi base so Iím just giving an estimate. A captain could make around AED 40,000 per month if you do around 40 sectors in a month. In contrast, an FO next door would make that doing zero hours in a month.

Of course I donít expect a LCC to pay the same as a full service carrier, but this is ridiculous. They are taking advantage of pilots out of work and they are taking advantage of their own Eastern European crew who think this is reasonable pay. As soon as the market picks up (which it is), people will leave and they will be f***ed.

Iím not one to discourage people from any company, even Wizz. So again if you need to get back to work, go for it, but treat them as disposable as they treat you.

And out of that 40k (I heard it was actually less) the Captain would then have to pay his accommodation costs, living costs, transport costs, child education costs etc. I looked at it and decided I was actually better off not working there. The only 'benefit' is that it keeps your licence current.

Understandingly. Cutoff the costs and only what is left defines the income quality.

Also for the EE pilots it just works if they keep the families home. Daddy has an offshore job...

Something I heard of third hand - if you fancy living in Dubai: go for 20/10 with flynas and move your family to UAE. Pay is around 60k.

SFO 102,060AED/year, distance pay 0.186AED/Km, landing pay 105AED per landing.

Above figures are all post line check. Pre line check basically half basic salary only (48,600/53,460AED) as no distance or landing pay. There is also a small accommodation allowance.

3500 on groceries but only 2000 on rent and bills? You need to check your numbers.

Not on rent only bills - falsely I included rent which is of course not included - 2000 was meant for bills only

Shocking to read this. Can't believe these are true figures.

No one seems to cover actual living costs, so, here goes:
- 2 Bed apartment on Reem Island - Approx. AED 8,800-00 per month
- Utilities (A/C, water and electricity) - Approx. AED 1,000-00 per month (in the summer)
- Internet - AED400-00 per month
- Mobile phone - AED200-00 per month
- Groceries - AED4,500 approx. per month (4 person family)
- Booze - AED500 per month
- Eating out - AED1,200-00 per month (4 persons each time)
- Schools - AED7,500-00 per month (for 2 kids over grade 6. This can vary wildly. Based on the Canadian International School, and you will have a woke'ster in your family...)
- Cars - You can lease one for approx. AED1,600 per month (inclusive of insurance and maintenance). Bigger car = Bigger money honey
- Fuel - currently AED3-67 per liter

A couple of things to bare in mind:
1) Rent usually has to be paid in 1, 2 or 4 cheques (correct, they still use cheques here!!!!!)
2) Schools fees are paid per term
3) I haven't included sundry expenses
4) I have not included medical insurance, as the company covers it.

very accurate and spot on.

the sad thing is your are depending on miles flown and landings to see how much you will have at the end. And this is highly unpredictable.

Would interesting to see a actual roaster in regards to the flexibel numbers.

another thing to bare in mind
rents are only 1 year - which means, as the rent is not indexed like in Dubai, landlord can increase the rent as seems appropriate to them. In other words you cannot be sure that a rent of 8,8kAed this year will hold up next year. Once market recovers prices can and will go up, which means that in the worst case you swap apartments yearly if you canít afford to go with the price hike.
With swapping apartments there comes also security deposit (which will be returned) and broker fee each time.
