How much can you recover?
The compensation amount you may be entitled to varies depending on the distance of your flight:
- For all flights of 1,500 kilometers or less, you could claim up to €250.
- For all intra-community flights of more than 1,500 kilometers and for all other flights between 1,500 and 3,500 kilometers, you could claim up to €400.
- For flights over 3,500 kilometers, you could claim up to €600.

It’s important to note that under EC 261/2004, airlines can be exempt from paying compensation if the flight disruption was due to “extraordinary circumstances.” These include weather conditions, security risks, unexpected flight safety shortcomings, or strikes.
However, technical problems often fall outside of this scope, which means you may still be entitled to Wizz Air compensation even if your flight was cancelled or delayed due to an aircraft issue.
Understanding Your Rights
Many passengers are unaware of their rights when a flight gets disrupted. As a passenger, the European law EC 261/2004 is designed to protect you. Under this law, not only are you entitled to compensation for the inconvenience, but Wizz Air is also obligated to provide care and assistance during the delay.
This includes meals and refreshments, two free calls or emails, hotel accommodation (if necessary), and transport between the airport and the hotel.
Under EC 261/2004, you can file a compensation claim for flights up to six years old. However, the time limit can vary from one country to another within Europe. We recommend submitting your claim as soon as possible to avoid any potential statutory deadline issues.
