Wizz Air

About Wizz Air

Wizz Air is a Hungarian budget airline that has headquarters in the capital city of Budapest. Its legal name is Wizz Air Hungary Ltd. Wizz Air has been in operation since September 2003 when the company was founded with the help of American investors, Indigo Partners, a private equity firm specialising in aviation projects. Wizz Air does not bear the Hungarian flag but is the largest airline operating from the Eastern European country. Wizz Air flights currently operate in 42 countries and the company has the largest fleet in Hungary.

Wizz Air launched on the London Stock Exchange in February 2015. Two years later in 2017, Wizz Air announced the launch of a new division in the UK based at London Luton, using the taking off and landing spots formerly used by the now-defunct Monarch Airlines, which went into administration in 2017. Wizz Air operates by using small out-of-town airports, such as Luton. This vastly reduces costs and fees for the airlines and its passengers.

In May 2018, Wizz Air was granted permission to operate out of British airports by the UK Civil Aviation Authority. This ensures that the new airline will be able to continue working after Brexit - Britain's planned departure from the European Union. Operations began on 3 May 2018, and the first flight was from Luton to Bucharest, Romania. Wizz Air Holdings is regarded as one of the fastest growing airlines in Europe. Plans for a new Wizz Air base at Vienna International Airport were announced in January 2018.

By the end of this year, Wizz Air UK is expected to have eight Airbus A320 and Airbus A321 aircraft, which is very positive for the UK economy as it will have created approximately 300 new jobs. Wizz Air and Wizz Air UK, along with other budget airlines, such as easyJet and Vueling aim to provide low-cost flights to popular European tourist destinations such as Athens, Bari, Bratislava, Larnaca, Lviv, Keflavik and Tirana. The Wizz Air fleet consists of 69 Airbus A320-200 and 30 Airbus 321. Wizz Air currently has 273 aircraft on order - as of April 2018 - which is the greatest number of all European airlines; Norwegian Air International is in second place.

Wizz Air varies from other airlines, such as British Airways, in that you can't book a specific seat on a plane. However, you can pay a fee to board the plane ahead of other passengers, enabling you to have a greater seating choice. Wizz Air offers passengers a range of hot and cold snacks and beverages and accepts cash payments in a number of currencies. Wizz Boutique also offers passengers the chance to buy gifts and travel accessories whilst on the plane.

How do I check in online with Wizz Air?

Wizz Air check-in is a very straightforward process and passengers can check-in during the two weeks before their flight departure time., until three hours before departure. Not all airports offer an online check-in service so it's worth checking when you make your booking. If the service isn't offered, check-in is completely free.

Wizz Air online check-in is time-saving as opposed to checking in at the airport which does incur a larger fee. You can purchase a Wizz Air web check-in by going to the Add Service page on the Wizz Air website and selecting the online check-in option.

What is my checked baggage allowance on Wizz Air?

Wizz Air baggage allowance is up to six pieces of checked baggage per flight and per customer, each of which is subject to a fee. The first three pieces of baggage can be purchased via the website, the additional three must be purchased at the airport and will be subject to higher fees. Passengers may be interested to note that Wizz Air Ukraine allows the first piece of baggage to be completely free.

What hand luggage can I take on Wizz Air?

Wizz Air hand luggage allowance permits each passenger to take up to one piece of hand luggage to accompany them on the flight, and they are also allowed additional items, such as a coat, book or a walking stick. Carry-on bags that are smaller than 42 cm x 32 cm x 25 cm are free of charge, but larger bags that won't fit underneath a seat but which can comfortably fit into the overhead locker are subject to a fee, which is calculated on the date of your flight.

I booked very last minute so did not realise I only had less than 10 minutes to check in. Some help or warning would have been useful. Rather than a 32 pound charge.

Good service hassle-free boarding & checking in. My only comment (& the reason why i didn't give you a 5-star rating) is that you could open your online check-in/boarding passes a lot earlier than 3 days before departure. Gone are the days of fronting up to departure desk to get your boarding pass so checking in online does make things easier. I like to be organised & have all my travel documents all printed out & ready well beforehand (say two weeks before flying) so I can get on with other hectic things of life.

Your online check in service did not allow me to do all four members of my family at the same time. I had to check in one person at a time and then start all over again to check in the next person. This was a bit annoying and did not allow me to see where we were all sitting until after I had started the process for the final person. Every other online check in service I have ever done for my family has let me check us all in together. The system also separated my family into two different sections of the plane rather than all together. I'm used to families being automatically put in the same section.
