As part of its commitment to reduce costs and offer cheaper fares to its passengers, Wizz Air will introduce an airport check-in fee from 1st April 2010. Airport check-in purchased at the time of booking will cost EUR 10 and EUR 20 if purchased at the airport on the day of departure. The web check-in service is completely free.
If you select web check-in you must print your own boarding card and present it at the boarding gate together with your travel documents (passport or National Identity card). If you hold non EU travel documents, you must present yourself at the check-in counter to have your documentation checked and your boarding card stamped before proceeding to the boarding gate. If you travel with checked-in hold baggage you must present yourself at the baggage drop desk no later than 40 minutes prior to the departure of your flight. If you cannot present your printed boarding card, you will be required to pay an airport check-in fee to have your boarding card printed at the check-in desk.
Airport check-in is subject to a fee payable per passenger and per flight. Airport check-in can be purchased at the time of booking or at a later stage using the "Add Service" option or via the Call Centre. Airport check-in purchased at the airport is subject to a higher fee. If the web check-in service is not yet available from your departure airport, airport check-in will be free until the service becomes available.
Web check-in is available from 14 days up to 3 hours before the scheduled flight departure time of the flight.
Passengers travelling with checked baggage must present themselves at the baggage drop desk no later than 40 minutes before the scheduled departure time of the flight. At some airports the check-in desks function as baggage drop desks as well.

From the 24th October Wizz Air is launching a new cabin baggage policy across its entire network* to encourage passengers to bring smaller baggage onboard and make the boarding process smoother and faster.
(*This new policy is not applicable on flights to and from Ukraine, with the exception of Budapest-Kiev and London Luton-Kyiv. This policy does not apply to flights operated by Wizz Air Ukraine (WAU))
Wizz Air strict “one cabin baggage per passenger” policy remains unchanged.
What is the difference between the cabin baggage types? – SIZE!
1. Small cabin bag:
-If your cabin baggage is of size 42x32x25cm or smaller it can be taken onboard free of charge. It must fit under the seat in front of you. The weight allowance is 10kg.
2. Large cabin bag:
If your cabin baggage is larger than the dimensions of a small cabin bag but not exceeding 56x45x25cm, you can take it onboard for a €10 fee. It must fit in the overhead compartment. You must be able to place it in the overhead compartment unassisted.
Should the weight or the size of the hand baggage exceed the aforesaid limits, the baggage will be transported as checked baggage and a baggage fee will be collected.
Passengers carrying more than one piece of hand luggage will not be allowed to proceed through security and will be required to go back to the check in desk, repack or dispose of the additional pieces of hand luggage.
