If you think you might be owed Wizz Air delay compensation or Wizz Air cancellation compensation, you've come to the right place. We can explain your rights as an airline passenger and have the resources to help you claim up to €600 compensation per person.
According to our data on recent Wizz Air flights, there were 621 departures within 24 hours and 25.44% were on time.
Even though airlines like Wizz Air strive to keep to their scheduled times, flights can still arrive late. Fortunately, as a traveller, you are protected by airline passenger rights when Wizz Air flights are delayed.
Since Wizz Air is based in the EU, almost all of its flights are protected by EC 261, one of the most comprehensive laws protecting air passenger rights worldwide.
EC Regulation 261 grants passengers the right to seek compensation when they have experienced delayed, cancelled, or overbooked flights that are not their fault.
There are some exceptional circumstances that may exempt airlines from paying compensation, such as bad weather or problems at the airport. However, if the delay is caused by technical problems or a strike by airline staff, you are likely to be owed compensation under Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004.
In addition, you generally have up to 3 years to file a Wizz Air flight delay compensation claim. All you need to do is enter your flight details and our easy-to-use flight delay compensation calculator will tell you if you are entitled to monetary compensation and our team of experts will be on hand to help you get it.
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.
In addition, if you received a notice regarding cancellation less than 14 days before departure, you may also be able to claim compensation up to €600 per person.
In general, when Wizz Air cancels flights, it will attempt to rebook passengers directly onto another flight at no additional cost. You can request other changes if the alternative flight that is offered does not work for you or if you no longer want to take that trip.
If Wizz Air can book you a new flight that lands at a similar time to your original flight, it is not required to pay any compensation. This is correct, because you will arrive at your destination with minimal disruption to your plans. However, in many cases, passengers whose flights are canceled at the last minute have the right to file a claim against Wizz Air for compensation.
All this applies unless the flight cancellation was caused by an event beyond the control of Wizz Air, such as bad weather conditions or an accident at the airport. These events are referred to as exceptional circumstances.

Because Wizz Air is based within the EU, almost all the flights they offer are protected by EC 261, one of the world's most comprehensive laws for air passenger rights.
The EC 261 Regulation grants passengers the right to claim compensation when they have experienced delayed, cancelled or overbooked flights, through no fault of their own. Passengers can also claim previous flights. Often you can still claim flights from the past 3 years.
