Wizz Air delays and cancellations – Know Your Rights

Stuck with delays or cancellations on your Wizz Air journey? No need to stress! The team at Air Travel Claim is here to help you understand your rights.

For the second year in a row, Wizz Air has earned the title of the least punctual major airline for flights departing from UK airports. A recent analysis of data from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) reveals that, on average, Wizz Air’s UK departures were delayed by 46 minutes and six seconds in 2022. This is three times more than the delays reported in the previous year when the airline also held the lowest ranking for being on time.

But did you know that if your Wizz Air flight is delayed or cancelled, you might be eligible for compensation? Our commitment is to ensure you’re treated fairly, with the potential to claim up to £520 per passenger.

Compensation Amounts Under UK 261

  • Flights under 1,500 km: Up to £220 per passenger.
  • Flights between 1,500 – 3,500 km: Up to £350 per passenger.
  • Flights over 3,500 km: Up to £520 per passenger.

Know Your Rights with Wizz Air

In the UK, air passenger regulations (UK 261) safeguard travellers on Wizz Air flights, allowing for compensation of up to £520 per passenger.

Eligibility for Compensation Due to Delays

Claim up to £520 for delays of 3 hours or more. Your eligibility hinges on the delay relative to the scheduled arrival time. These regulations exclude situations beyond the airline’s control, such as bad weather or labour strikes.

Understanding Flight Cancellation Compensation

If your flight gets cancelled, Wizz Air is obligated to provide an alternative flight or a refund. For last-minute cancellations (within 14 days of departure), you might be eligible for up to £520 per passenger. Compensation isn’t guaranteed in ‘extraordinary circumstances.’
