If you are looking for Wizz Air delay compensation or Wizz Air cancellation compensation, you’ve come to the right place. AirHelp is the world's leading air passenger rights organisation and has won more claims than anyone else. Let us get you the money you’re owed.
If you discover that your trip is going to be affected by Wizz Air flight delays, be sure to brush up on your air passenger rights so that you know what to do during the wait and ask for what is owed to you.
Firstly, you’ll need to check whether or not you are eligible for flight delay compensation with Wizz Air. According to both the EU's EC 261 and the UK's equivalent air passenger rights law, flights that were delayed by more than 3 hours may qualify for compensation. This means that you can get up to £520 per person if you arrive at your destination more than 3 hours late — regardless of your actual departure time. The amount you’re eligible for varies depending on the length of the delay and the travel distance.
If it wasn’t already announced, be sure to also ask Wizz Air what the cause of the delay was. You’re only owed compensation if the airline was responsible for the delay. Otherwise, if the delay was unavoidable and outside of the airline’s control, no compensation is owed.
Some common examples of unavoidable situations include severe weather conditions, natural calamities such as volcanic eruptions and earthquakes, political unrest, medical emergencies, and safety or security risks. Naturally, in these cases, the safety of the passengers comes first.
If you’re unsure whether you are eligible or not, AirHelp can make the process of claiming Wizz Air flight delay compensation easy and stress-free. Our Compensation Check Tool can confirm what you're owed within minutes.

Wizz Air flight cancellation is no joke — a cancellation can completely ruin your travel plans and cause you to miss out on important events, meetings, tours, and hotel bookings. And if your flight was cancelled while you’re abroad, you could even be left stranded.
To discourage airlines from cancelling flights, EC 261, an air passenger rights law, requires them to pay a set amount of compensation per passenger. You’re owed Wizz Air cancelled flight compensation if the disruption was the airline’s fault, and if the flight was cancelled less than 2 weeks before it was scheduled to depart.
However, you are not owed compensation if you were given a replacement flight that arrives at a similar time to your original flight. Though the flight changed, you still arrived at your destination as scheduled, which means that Wizz Air will not have to pay compensation.
