Wizz Air: What you need to do if your Wizz Air flight is delayed, cancelled or overbooked

 

You have rights as a Wizz Air passenger!

 

The Hungarian company is a European carrier and therefore is subject to what is stipulated in EC 261/2004. In other words, they need to compensate you, monetarily, if your flight has been delayed, cancelled or if you were denied boarding due to no fault of your own.  That’s not all, you also have more rights as a passenger. We will elaborate on them further down the road. Most importantly, if you want to find out if you have the right to claim compensation for your flight, you can do so with our free claim calculator. It will only take one or two minutes tops!

 

When can I claim compensation from Wizz Air?

 

  • The flight route: The European regulation states that you can claim compensation when a flight is operated by a European airline (like Wizz Air) and it takes off from and/or arrives at an airport in Europe.
  • Circumstances: The regulations also state that, in order to claim compensation for a flight delay, cancellation or incident of denied boarding, the disruption must not have been a result of extraordinary circumstances.
  • The deadline for claiming compensation: In the United Kingdom and Ireland, it is possible to claim compensation up to 6 years after the date of the flight. The timeframe varies depending on the European country.
  • The total time of your delay: In most cases, you will be able to claim if you’ve arrived at your final destination with a delay greater than 3 hours. When it comes to cancellations, it's 2 hours.

 

Other criteria may apply. If you want to know more about these conditions, don’t forget to read our dedicated pages about cancellations and delays.

 

Assistance and care when flying with Wizz Air and your flight is delayed or cancelled

 

Wizz Air is obliged to provide you with proper care in the event of a long delay or flight cancellation. This may include:

 

  • Meals and drinks
  • Two different occasions in which you are allowed to establish communication with an individual of your choice (calls, emails, etc.)
  • Hotel accommodations if necessary (one or more nights) and transport from the airport to the hotel

 

If you do not receive the corresponding assistance and/or care, and therefore you incur in extra expenses, you have the right to be reimbursed. Remember to keep your itemised invoices and receipts. The request for reimbursement may also be attached to your claim for compensation.

 

How much money will I receive in compensation for a Wizz Air flight delay, cancellation or overbooking?

 

Also defined by EC Regulation 261/2004, the total amount you may receive in compensation is determined by the flight’s itinerary and the distance between the airport of departure and arrival. Connecting flights are taken into account when assessing your situation. In other words, your whole booking is covered by the regulation. Consequently, it’s the distance between your initial airport of departure and your final destination what will determine the total amount of money that you may receive in compensation for your delayed, overbooked or cancelled flight. Connecting flights are covered as long as they have been booked under the same reference. Put differently, if they are part of the same ticket or itinerary.

 

  • For all flights covering a distance of up to 1,500 kilometres, you will receive up to £232.00
  • For all flights covering a distance between 1,500 kilometres and 3,500 kilometres, you will receive up to £371.00
  • For flights covering a distance greater than 3,500 kilometres, you are entitled to up to £556.00

 

Compensation amount for your disrupted Wizz Air flight

 

Please remember that if your flight travelled a distance greater than 3,500 kilometres and it was delayed more than 3 hours but fewer than 4, then the total amount of compensation is reduced by 50%. The regulation defines the total amounts in euros and they are €250, €400 and €600.

 

How to get compensated by Wizz Air when your flight has been delayed or cancelled

 

These are our most relevant recommendations and things to keep in mind when your Wizz Air flight has been disrupted:

 

Keep a copy of your travel documents

 

  • Flight documents (boarding pass, booking confirmation, e-ticket, delay statement, etc.)
  • Receipts for additional costs (e.g. taxi, food and accommodation)

 

Write down the flight information

 

  • Wizz Air’s flight number
  • The flight schedule (arrival & departure hours)
  • Length of the delay (final departure and arrival time)

 

Find out the reason for the flight’s delay or cancellation

 

  • Ask Wizz Air’s staff and crew
  • Check the weather
  • Check if other flights are delayed or cancelled (arriving at or departing from the same airport)

Receive the compensation you’re owed by Wizz Air

 

Very often, airlines make the process of claiming as complicated as possible in order to simply avoid compensating their passengers. They also overuse the argument that a disruption was caused by an extraordinary circumstance. Therefore, and more often than not, one sees passengers lose hope and accept the airline’s rejection as the truth.

 

Fortunately, we have the adequate tools and databases to ensure that your rights are enforced and to fact-check the airlines. We will even take the them to court when necessary and all of the legal costs will be covered by our 25% win-fee. If you wish so, we can take care of everything and help you enforce your rights!

What if Wizz Air claims extraordinary circumstances?

 

Regulation EC 261/2004 specifies that passengers may receive compensation if the delay, cancellation or denied boarding was caused by an incident under the responsibility of the airline. It means that the airline will have to pay compensation unless it can prove that the disruption was caused by an extraordinary circumstance. Examples of extraordinary circumstances include adverse weather conditions, natural disasters, political unrest, a threat to the safety of the flight or passengers, a passenger falling ill, etc.

 

Wizz Air rejected your claim? We can still help you

 

If you’re uncertain if your flight delay or cancellation qualifies for compensation, once you’ve submitted your claim our team of experts will analyse the circumstances and assess your situation. If your claim has already been rejected by Wizz Air, you can still submit your claim and our team will verify and corroborate the airline’s arguments. Very often, they assess the situation wrongly and reject perfectly valid claims; so don’t give up that easily and don’t worry, we’re here to help you!
