Passengers on Wizz Air flights will no longer have to make additional payments for bringing in larger pieces of hand luggage when boarding, starting with October 29, 2017. As the airline says, passengers will be able to bring in one piece of hand luggage not exceeding the dimensions of 55x40x23 cm, as it will be included in the price of the ticket.
This decision means that the limit of free hand luggage is to increase by 50% compared to the current rule.
The passengers who have already bought tickets featuring additional payments for larger pieces of hand luggage and whose flights are scheduled for after October 29 will be recompensed by the amount of the additional payment increased by 20% in the form of a credit within their WIZZ accounts.
The airline has also announced new, additional service for passengers, called WIZZ Priority. The service becomes available on July 19 on all Wizz Air flights and includes priority boarding, the option of including an additional small bag along with the hand luggage, as well as guaranteed bringing in of hand luggage in the passenger cabin beginning with October 29 (also available to passengers who buy WIZZ Go, WIZZ Plus and WIZZ Privilege Pass).
– Wizz Air is proud of its software solutions, which are accessible to passengers, its modern technology and the efficiency of its fleet, as well as exquisite in-flight service and professional staff. We are dedicated to making each Wizz Air travel as simple and stress-free as possible, and, by canceling additional payment for hand luggage on all our flights beginning with October 29, we are further accenting our dedication to this goal – Jozsef Varadi, CEO of Wizz Air, said on the occasion of the publication of the financial results for the first three months of 2017.
