Assessment of legal validity
You may be entitled to receive up to £501.00 per person.
The Hungarian company is a European carrier and therefore is subject to what is stipulated in EC 261/2004. In other words, they need to compensate you, monetarily, if your flight has been delayed, cancelled or if you were denied boarding due to no fault of your own. That’s not all, you also have more rights as a passenger. We will elaborate on them further down the road. Most importantly, if you want to find out if you have the right to claim compensation for your flight, you can do so with our free claim calculator. It will only take one or two minutes tops!
Wizz Air is obliged to provide you with proper care in the event of a long delay or flight cancellation. This may include:
If you do not receive the corresponding assistance and/or care, and therefore you incur in extra expenses, you have the right to be reimbursed. Remember to keep your itemised invoices and receipts. The request for reimbursement may also be attached to your claim for compensation.
Also defined by EC Regulation 261/2004, the total amount you may receive in compensation is determined by the flight’s itinerary and the distance between the airport of departure and arrival. Connecting flights are taken into account when assessing your situation. In other words, your whole booking is covered by the regulation. Consequently, it’s the distance between your initial airport of departure and your final destination what will determine the total amount of money that you may receive in compensation for your delayed, overbooked or cancelled flight. Connecting flights are covered as long as they have been booked under the same reference. Put differently, if they are part of the same ticket or itinerary.
Please remember that if your flight travelled a distance greater than 3,500 kilometres and it was delayed more than 3 hours but fewer than 4, then the total amount of compensation is reduced by 50%. The regulation defines the total amounts in euros and they are €250, €400 and €600.
These are our most relevant recommendations and things to keep in mind when your Wizz Air flight has been disrupted:

Very often, airlines make the process of claiming as complicated as possible in order to simply avoid compensating their passengers. They also overuse the argument that a disruption was caused by an extraordinary circumstance. Therefore, and more often than not, one sees passengers lose hope and accept the airline’s rejection as the truth.
Fortunately, we have the adequate tools and databases to ensure that your rights are enforced and to fact-check the airlines. We will even take the them to court when necessary and all of the legal costs will be covered by our 25% win-fee. If you wish so, we can take care of everything and help you enforce your rights!
If you want to maximise the probability of being compensated for your Wizz Air flight delay, cancellation or overbooking, you can let a specialised service, like Flight-Delayed, take care of the whole ordeal. We will gladly help you get what is yours, all under our no-win no-fee agreement.
Regulation EC 261/2004 specifies that passengers may receive compensation if the delay, cancellation or denied boarding was caused by an incident under the responsibility of the airline. It means that the airline will have to pay compensation unless it can prove that the disruption was caused by an extraordinary circumstance. Examples of extraordinary circumstances include adverse weather conditions, natural disasters, political unrest, a threat to the safety of the flight or passengers, a passenger falling ill, etc.
If you’re uncertain if your flight delay or cancellation qualifies for compensation, once you’ve submitted your claim our team of experts will analyse the circumstances and assess your situation. If your claim has already been rejected by Wizz Air, you can still submit your claim and our team will verify and corroborate the airline’s arguments. Very often, they assess the situation wrongly and reject perfectly valid claims; so don’t give up that easily and don’t worry, we’re here to help you!
As the largest Hungarian, even though it’s a low-cost carrier, Wizz Air transports around 34 million passengers per year. Their route network services 140 destinations in 35 countries with a fleet of over 115 aircraft. The company generally tends to be rather punctual. Wizz Air’s main hub is located in Budapest.
