Wow, we have some amazing news for all fans of low-cost traveling!

Wizz Air just announced on their website they are increasing the size of cabin baggage included with the ticket to standard size 55x40x23cm!!

Until now the airline included only small cabin baggage up to 42x32x25cm in the price of your flight ticket and you had to pay €10-€20 for the “big” cabin bag.

To be honest the small cabin bag size was really small and enough only for very few passengers so almost everyone had to purchase at least the bigger cabin baggage or classic check-in luggage and therefore creating great extra revenue stream for Wizz Air.

From 29th October 2017 all tickets will include big cabin bag with up to 55cm in size and 10 kg weight limit.

Vast majority of competition already offers this size in the price of the ticket, so it was just matter of time before Wizz Air has to change this rule too after many complaints from passengers.

The biggest competitor Ryanair offers even 2 bags up to 55x40x20 cm + 35x20x20 cm with every ticket.

Customers travelling on or after 29 October 2017 that have already purchased hand luggage directly through Wizz Air channels will be reimbursed with 120% of the price paid, credited to their WIZZ accounts as compensation.

Today the airline also announced a new service option for passengers called WIZZ Priority. Valid on all flights from today, WIZZ Priority now includes:

  • Priority boarding
  • Passengers able to bring an additional small bag (maximum dimensions of 40x30x18cm) into the cabin
  • From 29 October, a guarantee that hand luggage will be placed in the cabin (also available for passengers when purchasing WIZZ Go, WIZZ Plus and the WIZZ Privilege Pass)

This is amazing news for all travelers in Europe and we hope Wizz Air will not compensate this change in increased prices and keep their fares low.
