Josef Kral and Simon Trummer will form Arden's line-up for this weekend's non-championship GP2 event at Yas Marina.
Czech driver Kral raced for Arden in the main series this year, finishing 15th in the championship and scoring a best result of second in the Monaco sprint race. He believes a strong run is on the cards at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix support event.
"I am very happy to be back in the team where I raced all season," said Kral, 21. "I hope that we can build on the experience what we gained throughout the season and hopefully turn in to some good results in Abu Dhabi."
Trummer, meanwhile, will be making his competitive debut in GP2 machinery, having raced for the MW Arden team in on his way to 18th in the GP3 standings - albeit with points finishes in the last three races. He also tested for the GP2 team at Jerez and Barcelona in recent weeks.
"It is definitely my season highlight to race with such a great team as Arden in Abu Dhabi," he said.
"I'm so happy that I have this chance! After a great test I feel really comfortable with the car and in the team. I feel like I have raced for them all my career, so I will give my best for do a good job and I hope we will are successful."
