Passengers will automatically be entitled to travel with one piece of hand luggage with maximum dimensions of 55x40x23cm.

Maximum weight of hand baggage is 10kg. Passengers will be able to bring on board items of duty free purchased at the airport after security checks.

For customers looking for extra cabin baggage allowance, WIZZ Priority service allows passengers to bring an additional small bag on board and place it under the seat with maximum dimensions of 40x30x18cm. The service guarantees that their free hand luggage (55x40x23cm) will be placed in the cabin area. WIZZ Priority also allows passengers to skip the queue at boarding and be amongst the first to board the plane (The WIZZ Priority service is also available for passengers when purchasing WIZZ Go, WIZZ Plus and the WIZZ Privilege Pass).

Johan Eidhagen, Chief Marketing Officer at Wizz Air, said: ”Here at Wizz Air passenger satisfaction is our priority, which is why we have listened to customer feedback and now offer a large item of hand luggage free with each Wizz Air ticket purchased. This is another example of Wizz Air’s commitment to providing a best in class experience for our customers, from the moment they book their WIZZ flight, to landing at their destination of choice. Our friendly and professional crew look forward to welcoming both new and returning passengers on board soon.”
