Compensation for Wizz Air flight delays

Delays at airports can be exasperating, information is not always available, and there’s always the faint possibility at the back of our minds that our flight may be cancelled. Knowing when you are entitled to delayed flight compensation can be quite intricate but basically it all depends on who is at fault, is it the fault of the airline? Other factors influencing compensation are the flight route and the amount of delay at arrival.

Compensation for a delayed Wizz Air flight applies when there is a delay of at least 3 hours. Delays are counted as the difference from the scheduled time of arrival at the final destination to the actual time of arrival, when the plane door opens after arrival at the final destination. It is extremely important to ascertain that the reason for delay is the fault, i.e. was within the control of the airline, and not extraordinary circumstances as detailed in the provisions of Regulation (EU) No 261/2004.

The regulation governs any flight that originates or terminates in the EU and any flight anywhere in the world by an airline that is registered in an EU country.

Wizz Air flight cancellations

Like all airlines, Wizz Air does its best to limit the amount of its cancelled flights, however sometimes cancellations still can happen. Wizz Air usually operates a policy of offering alternate flights for its customers. Whether or not you accept an alternate flight does not necessarily preclude you from compensation. Compensation itself is awarded based on European Union Regulation (EU) No 261/2004, which stipulates the requisite circumstances for airlines to be liable for disrupted flight compensation.

Knowing when you eligible to make a claim for Wizz Air flight cancellation compensation is not always straightforward as there are many variables involved and the compensation process can take a long time.

If for any reason Wizz Air refuses to pay, our legal experts will be happy to represent you in court and assert all your legal rights.

Unlike other disrupted flights which only come to light on the day, notice of cancelled flights may be given well in advance. Flights that are cancelled 14 days or more in advance are not considered eligible for compensation. The circumstances whereby a Wizz Air cancellation leads to compensation are many and varied, and your flight eligibility can be checked for free online with our GIVT flight checker.

When flights are cancelled between 13 and 7 days before the scheduled date of departure compensation may be due if Wizz Air’s alternate flight departs outside of a window of 2 hours or more before the original scheduled departure time and/or arrives at the final destination with a delay of 4 or more hours after the scheduled arrival time.

  • e.g. Flight XX9998 from Cardiff to San Francisco is cancelled 10 days in advance. An alternate flight leaves 1 hour and 10 minutes before the scheduled time but meets heavy winds and arrives 30 minutes later than the original schedule. No compensation is due.

Flights cancelled less than 7 days in advance, or on the day itself i.e. when you were at the airport, the time window reduces and compensation is due if the alternative flight departed 1 hour or more before the original scheduled departure time and/or arrived at the final destination with a delay of 2 or more hours after the scheduled arrival time.

  • e.g. The same flight XX9998 from Cardiff to San Francisco is cancelled 2 days in advance. An alternate flight leaves 1 hour and 10 minutes before the scheduled time but meets heavy winds and arrives 30 minutes later than the original schedule. Compensation is due as the plane left too early, outside of the time limit window.

As with delayed flights, it is vital to ascertain that the cancelled flight is the fault of Wizz Air. Certain events such as a lightning strike, a medical or a security emergency are deemed as extraordinary circumstances, and beyond the control of BA, are therefore not compensatable. All other circumstances, such as a Wizz Air staff strike, or Wizz Air technical fault, and deemed within the control of the airline and thus are compensatable.

As in all cases of cancelled flights Wizz Air has a duty of care to you. You are entitled to food and refreshments after certain delays, as well as free accommodation in the case of an overnight delay, see above for more details.

Wizz Air overbooking / denied boarding

Denied boarding is thankfully not something that occurs very often. Overbooking, however, is a standard airline practice whereby more seats are sold on a flight than there actually are. While it may sound crazy, this is actually something than benefits all customers in general. Airline analysts can calculate the expected amount of no shows for a particular flight and the airline then sells these “excess” seats, often at inflated prices. This extra income benefits everyone as it lowers the cost of everyone else’s tickets. When the airline gets it wrong, and too many people show up for a flight some passengers may be denied boarding.

Generally, airlines ask passengers to volunteer to give up their seats and will compensate those passengers appropriately. Some passengers are very happy to do this and even find it advantageous. Passengers who are bumped involuntarily, i.e. denied flying through no fault of their own are entitled to compensation under European Union Regulation (EU) No 261/2004.

There are situations where compensation does not apply. If a passenger does not check in on time, does not arrive at the gates on time, does not have all travel documents, or poses a real security threat, possible medical emergency, or is threatening or abusive to crew before take off.

As in all cases of cancelled flights Wizz Air has a duty of care to you. You are entitled to food and refreshments after certain delays, as well as free accommodation in the case of an overnight delay, see above for more details.

If you feel that you have a real grievance and were denied boarding on a flight through no fault of your own our team is ready and waiting to deal with your claim. We are experts in the field and have much experience dealing with BA, greatly increasing your chances for a quick and easy payout.

How much compensation you can get from Wizz Air?

The maximum amount of compensation per passenger for a delayed flight or cancelled flight is €600, and €300 in the case of a delayed alternate flight however, this amount is dependent on the flight distance and the location of the flight route.

If you were offered an alternate flight to your original final destination but still arrived late you are again eligible for compensation but at 50% reduced rates. This reduction is applied when the alternate flight arrives at a threshold less than those listed in the table above.

  • e.g. flight XX9999 from London Gatwick to Edinburgh arriving at 14:20 is cancelled. An alternate flight arrives in Edinburg at 15:40, 1 hour and 20 minutes after original scheduled time. The flight is less than 1,500 km, and arrived less than 2 hours late, therefore the reduced 50% applies for the inconvenience of having to change flight, as opposed to full compensation for a delayed flight.
Flight distances and route location Alternate flights Delayed/cancelled flights Denied boarding
Flights up to 1,500 km € 125 € 250 € 250
All Intra EU Flights over 1,500 km € 200 € 400 € 400
All flights between 1,500 km – 3,500 km € 200 € 400 € 400
All other flights over 3,500 km € 300 € 600 € 600

Duty of care

As in all cases of flight disruption Wizz Air has a duty of care to customers. Refreshments and food should be offered after different delay thresholds depending on the fight distance. If vouchers are offered be very careful that the vouchers offered are only for your entitlements and do not represent a form of compensation for your flight disruption. For example, you should accept a €10.00 voucher for food and a drink, but not a €100 voucher towards the cost of your next flight as this constitutes compensation and disallows for future Regulation (EU) 261 compensation.

Refund of expenses incurred

If for any reason the airline fails to provide you with your food and beverage entitlements after the prescribed times you may claim a refund of costs incurred upon presentation of detailed receipts for yourself and other fellow passengers within your group. This also extends to overnight stays for a delayed or cancelled flight where the airline fails to provide accommodation, meals, and transport to and from the hotel. Keep any such receipts in a safe place and ensure that they are all clearly dated and legible.

If you suffered a delayed flight our team is ready and waiting to deal with your claim. We are experts in the field and have much experience dealing with your airline, greatly increasing your chances for a quick and easy payout. You can visit also our Compensation for flight delays {link} page to find out more about your rights!

If your flight was delayed by over 5 hours you can opt out of your flight, seek a ticket refund and still be eligible for compensation! In this instance Wizz Air must also:

  • refund any other flights on the same ticket that will be missed (following connecting flights)
  • a flight back to your original point of departure (your initial departure airport)
  • food and drinks
  • access to phone calls and e-mail
  • Accommodation and transport there and back if delayed overnight

Wizz Air – lost or damaged baggage and luggage

The provisions of the European Union Regulation (EU) No 261/2004 do not cover damaged and or lost personal belongings. Damaged, delayed or lost luggage compensation claims are covered by the Montreal Convention. It is a multi-national agreement signed by 132 countries, plus all members of the EU. Its aim is to establish uniformity and predictability of rules relating to the international carriage of passengers, baggage and cargo.

The convention classifies baggage as “delayed” for the first 21 days, after which it is considered “lost”. The compensation limits set by the convention are not an exact cash amount, but rather Special Drawing Rights (SDR), a pseudo currency used in lieu, with 6 SDR equal to approximately €5. Currently maximum compensation is awarded at approximately €1,300 per passenger. Unfortunately, we currently do not offer a lost or damaged baggage claim service, but our team of experts will be happy to inform you about any queries you have. Alternately you should contact your airline directly to seek compensation.

Luggage Allowance

  • Carry-on luggage: Free allowance of one item measuring no more than 40 x 30 x 20 cm / Passengers who have paid for Wizz Priority services are entitled to an additional carry-on item measuring no more than 55 x 40 x 23 cm. Maximum weight is 10kg.
  • Checked luggage: Passengers can check in up to 3 bags measuring no more than 149 x 119 x 171 cm each, but checked luggage incurs extra fees depending on the item’s weight. Different rates apply to 10kg, 20kg, and 30kg checked in bags.
  • Excess luggage: Passengers can carry a maximum of 6 items of luggage, although anything over 3 bags will be considered excess luggage and charged accordingly. Sports equipment can be checked in after paying the relevant fee. You can find a list of luggage fees here.
