The famous Hungarian air company Wizz Air is changing its response policy to flight delays and cancellations. Recently, many passengers have appealed to the company with complaints about not receiving reimbursement for flight delays or cancellations. As a result, a significant number of disgruntled passengers filed lawsuits against the airline.

Whether the company considers numerous complaints and how it will now react to flight delays read further.


Complaints about Wizz Air


Passengers have accused the company of ignoring their complaints, so the regulatory body – the Civil Aviation Authority of Great Britain – intervened. This institution obliged Wizz Air to revise its policy and provide passengers with free ticket booking for other flights.

According to Paul Smith, the Interim Head of the Regulator, passengers can expect their complaints and claims to be considered quickly and efficiently. At the same time, the airline should treat them fairly following the rules. Smith emphasized that the actions of Wizz Air were unacceptable.

Wizz Air has reported that it is currently updating the policies thus the Civil Aviation Authority will be monitoring its enforcement in the future. Additionally, representatives of the Authority will monitor the managing the previous complaints to check how the company pays out compensation to passengers.
