Wizz Air, the fastest growing airline in Europe and the leading low cost carrier in Central and Eastern Europe kindly reminds all passengers travelling with the airline after 1 November 2018 that its new and transparent baggage policy aiming at easing boarding for passengers and decreasing baggage-related delays for all Wizz Air flights, will come into effect in one week.
As of 1 November, every passenger is entitled to bring one free carry-on bag (40x30x20 cm) on board, while those passengers who purchase WIZZ Priority will be allowed to carry a trolley bag (55x40x23 cm) into the cabin as well. Based on customer feedback and the changing travel patterns, Wizz Air has introduced a 10kg checked in bag to facilitate comfortable travel experience with prices starting from as low as €7.
The airline’s new clear and fair baggage policy is the policy of choices for our passengers as it allows WIZZ customers to choose among more than 50 carry-on and checked in baggage variations based on their individual preferences.
We encourage our passengers to pack smart and purchase WIZZ Priority, which includes a free carry-on bag (40x30x20 cm), a trolley bag (55x40x23 cm) to be carried on board, Priority check in and Priority boarding from as low as €5.
Bookings without WIZZ Priority made before 10 October for the travel period after 1 November 2018 will be upgraded with a free 10kg checked in bag, while bookings with a checked in baggage will be upgraded with WIZZ Priority.
Wizz Air believes that this transparent and clear approach to baggage policy will contribute to a more comfortable and quicker boarding, a better customer experience and at the same time enhance the airline’s on time departure performance. With more certainty that a bag can fit on board, and a new, wider selection of baggage size and weight options, customers now have an unprecedented assortment of combinations to choose from.
Johan Eidhagen, Wizz Air’s Chief Marketing Officer added: “It is only one week left until our new, transparent and fair-for-all baggage policy comes into effect. It offers the widest selection of baggage choices for our customers, while allowing a free carry-on bag for every passenger. Starting 1 November we will make the boarding process smoother, and thus more comfortable, while continuously offering the lowest possible fares throughout our extensive network of 143 destinations in 44 countries.”
