Wizz Air upgrades its Priority Boarding service


Wizz Air has announced an upgrade to its first-to-board Priority Boarding service to include the option of bringing on board a small personal item.


With the upgrade, passengers flying with Priority Boarding, purchased as a stand-alone option or as part of a Plus Fare or WIZZ Privilege Pass, will have the choice to bring a small personal item on board in addition to either a small or large cabin bag.


György Abrán, chief commercial officer at Wizz Air, stated: “We are constantly working to give our customers more, while keeping our fares low every day. At Wizz Air, we believe there is always an opportunity to do things better and passenger feedback shows us there is a market for upgrades to the basic low fares we offer to millions of passengers.


“Wizz Air has a generous baggage policy that provides for either a free small cabin bag or, for a low fee, a large cabin bag with no weight limit. With the upgrade to our Priority Boarding option, we create more choice for those who prefer to carry an extra item on board while still ensuring that boarding remains hassle-free and the cabin space uncluttered.”


Priority Boarding, which allows passengers to board their flight ahead of general boarding, can be added to Basic Fares for €3 per seat and flight if purchased online, €4 if purchased at the airport.


The Plus Fare, which includes Priority Boarding, was launched in May 2015 to address the needs of comfort conscious travellers and comprises the flight fare, seat selection including premium seats, airport check-in, WIZZ Flex for flexibility on flight changes, a large cabin bag, and one checked bag.


The WIZZ Privilege Pass was launched in January 2014 as a yearly membership programme for frequent travellers. For an annual fee of €99, pass holders can expect to enjoy seat selection including premium seats and unlimited priority boarding and a large cabin bag on every flight.


Wizz Air currently connects Larnaka with Sofia (Bulgaria), Belgrade (Serbia), Budapest (Hungary), Katowice (Poland), Warsaw (Poland), Vilinus (Lithuania), Kiev (Ukraine) and Bucharest (Romania).
