Compensation for delayed Wizz Air flight
Although airlines like Wizz Air aim to maintain their scheduled times, flights may still arrive late. Fortunately, as a traveller, you are covered by airline passenger rights when Wizz Air flights are delayed.
As Wizz Air is headquartered in the EU, nearly all of its flights are protected by EC 261, one of the most comprehensive laws protecting air passenger rights globally.
EC Regulation 261 gives passengers the right to claim compensation when they have faced delayed, cancelled, or overbooked flights that are not their fault.
There are some extraordinary circumstances that may exempt airlines from paying compensation, such as bad weather or problems at the airport. Nevertheless, if the delay is caused by technical issues or a strike by airline staff, you will likely be eligible for compensation under Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004.
Moreover, you generally have up to 3 years to make a Wizz Air flight delay compensation claim. Simply enter your flight details and our user-friendly flight delay compensation calculator will tell you if you qualify for monetary compensation, and our team of professionals will be available to assist you in obtaining it.

Flight Cancellation Compensation Wizz Air
In the event of a Wizz Air flight cancellation, European laws on air passenger rights are clear: Wizz Air must offer you alternative transportation to get to your destination or, if you prefer, a refund.
Furthermore, if you received a notice regarding cancellation less than 14 days before departure, you may also be eligible to claim compensation of up to £520 per person.
When Wizz Air cancels flights, it will usually attempt to rebook passengers on another flight at no extra cost. If this does not work for you, you may request other changes or choose to no longer take the trip.
If Wizz Air books you a new flight that arrives at a similar time to your original flight, it is not required to pay compensation. This is because your plans will have minimal disruption. However, in many cases, passengers whose flights are cancelled at the last minute have the right to file a claim for compensation against Wizz Air.
These rights do not apply if the flight cancellation was caused by an event beyond Wizz Air's control, such as severe weather conditions or an accident at the airport. Such events are referred to as exceptional circumstances.
