Wizz Air Reviews

“Now we can all fly” is Wizz Air’s company slogan. The value-oriented company focuses on innovation with the aim to provide travelers reasonably priced airfare. Let us dive into the low-cost airline of Hungary, the land of thermal baths. In this Wizz Air review, swimsuits are not needed to experience the Hungarian airline.

History of Wizz Air

Wizz Air traces its roots back to June 2003 when six airline professionals teamed up with the Chief Executive Officer, József Váradi, and this alliance was so successful that after three months the low-cost airline was prepared to hit the skies. The first inaugural flight of Wizz Air was on the 19th of May 2004 from Katowice.

The Hungarian low-cost airline is headquartered in Budapest, Hungary and operates in 21 bases with 63 aircraft serving over 110 destinations internationally. This year, Wizz Air received the award as one of the 10 “Best Low-Cost Airlines in Europe” by World Airline Awards and “Superbrand of the Year” by Superbrands Polska. Prior to that, Wizz Air had received multiple awards since 2004 and that includes “Airline with lowest fares” by German Aerospace Center (DLR) and “Best Eastern European Airline” by Business Traveler.

Wizz Air doesn’t have cabin classes. Passengers are treated equally on board, wherein travelers get to enjoy a wide range of sandwiches, snacks and/or beverages from their inflight menu. However the airline doesn’t provide any entertainment system but Wizz Air allows passengers to use their personal electronic devices on board.

Official Website and Mobile App

Though the site is not following the tricolor coloring of the Hungarian flag, the vibrant colors of pink and blue attract customers with a soothing effect of a cloud background that makes it more appealing. This page reminds me of the theme color of Flickr. The page is generous when it comes to changing the language from English to 22 other languages, which is located on the top right of the page, next to the Special Offers icon.

The feature of the official website lets travelers search and book flights, hotel reservations, car rentals, check-in online, manage bookings and access to information regarding the airline’s policies, services and their latest deals. They have the option to register with their Wizz discount club wherein customers get a guaranteed discount of €10 on ticket fares.

All of those features are also accessible in their mobile app available in the App store and Google Play store.

Wizz Air Reviews of Passengers

Wizz Air had gathered an overall score of 5/10 on Skytrax and this is based on passenger’s feedback and comments. However, the Wizz Air reviews can’t be considered as all positive because they’re a mixture of complaints and recommendations. Some reviewers are not even satisfied flying with Wizz Air but on the positive note, some say they are definitely going to fly with them again.

Let me share you one of the most recent reviews: Ms. Reynolds from United Kingdom said it was a great flight with Wizz Air. The plane took off on time and landed early, cabin crew were pleasant, snacks and beverages were on a reasonable price similar with other low-cost airlines and it had decent legroom for seats. She ended her review by saying “Would not hesitate to use again.” Through that, she gave Wizz Air a 9 out 10 rating according to Airlinequality.com

After reading other Wizz Air reviews, the low budget airline is definitely one of the most respected and intelligently created airlines. The Hungarian trait of being smart and sporty was applied to this airline’s practices. As the good old saying goes, “Be a good sport and victory will follow.”

  1. The website is most user unfriendly. It has taken several attempts to actually book the flight. However trying to confirm the flight was very difficult. Unable to do it online I resorted to calling a premium rate phone line to achieve the result. Eventually finding my way forward I was informed that the first three rows of seats are reserved to those paying the £7.00!
