Checked-in baggage

Passengers are allowed to travel with up to six pieces of checked-in baggage, which should be dropped off at the check-in counter.

You can purchase a maximum of three checked-in bags through your WIZZ Account or via our Call Centre, while the remaining can be purchased at the airport.

Our basic fare does not include any checked-in baggage allowance. However, both WIZZ Go and WIZZ Plus bundles have checked-in baggage included in the flight price.

TYPES OF CHECKED-IN BAGS:

  • 10 kg checked-in bag
  • 20 kg checked-in bag
  • 26 kg checked-in bag
  • 32 kg checked-in bag

All bags added to the booking must be of the same type, and the total number cannot exceed six per passenger. For instance, you can purchase three 26 kg bags online and three at the airport, but you cannot purchase three 20 kg bags online and add three 32 kg bags later.

The 10 kg checked-in bag is an exception, with each passenger allowed to purchase a maximum of one.

Additionally, one pushchair/foldable baby stroller can be checked in free of charge for each child.
