Dear Passenger,

looks like WizzAir want to get more money out of us!!!!
Dear Passenger,
Today, airlines suffer from overcrowded aircraft cabins as a result of the excessive number of bags being brought on board. This overcrowding can lead to an unpleasant onboard experience for you and often creates significant delays, inconveniencing all passengers.
To address these issues and ensure a more positive travel experience for all of our passengers, Wizz Air announced the introduction of an innovative cabin baggage policy on 04 October, introducing 2 types of cabin baggage. Wizz Air will roll out this policy across its network for flights departing from 24 October 2012.
If you purchased tickets on or after 4 October for travel on or after 24 October 2012 you will be subject to the new cabin baggage policy:
• You are allowed to bring only one cabin bag on board, either small or large cabin bag. If you choose a large cabin bag, you are required to pay a fee;
• Goods purchased at the airport after the security checkpoint are allowed to be brought on board in addition to your one cabin bag;
• There is no weight limit for your cabin bag, as long as you can place it into the overhead compartment unassisted;

1. Small cabin bag:
If your cabin bag is of size 42x32x25cm or smaller it can be taken on board free of charge. A small backpack (with approx. 30 L capacity) or laptop bag that fits under the seat in front of you would typically meet this requirement.
2. Large cabin bag:
If your cabin bag is larger than the dimensions of a small cabin bag, you will be required to pay a fee to take your bag on board. Your large cabin bag still needs to fit easily into the overhead compartments of the cabin and so it should be no larger than 56x45x25cm (IATA standard cabin bag dimension with approx. 60 L capacity).

Don’t forget that the size of your baggage will be checked at the airport. Purchase online in advance and save 50% or more!
Wizz Air encourages all passengers who are travelling with a large cabin bag to purchase the large cabin bag option online at least 3 hours before departure for a €10 fee. If you haven’t purchased online you will have to pay at the airport, the fee is€20 at check-in or €30 at the gate.
Wizz Air expects to derive cost-savings from this initiative. Fewer bags mean less fuel spend, which helps Wizz Air to keep fares low every day. For new bookings on flights departing from 24 October, all Wizz Air fares are discounted by €5* to share the expected cost savings with our passengers.
(*Minimum discounted total price is€8.99 one-way, inclusive of taxes and maximum booking fee. Large cabin bag and checked-in baggage are subject to additional fees.)
For more information about this new policy, please visit .
We look forward to seeing you on your next flight! so we can charge you even more in hidden costs...
If you booked a flight before 04 October, or the first flight of your return booking departs before 24 October, you may take a large cabin bag on board free of charge. This policy already applies to flights between Katowiceand London Luton and will continue to apply without interruption. This new policy is not applicable on flights to and from Ukraine, with the exception of Budapest-Kiev and London Luton-Kiev. This policy does not apply to flights operated by Wizz Air Ukraine (WAU).
