Wizz air introduces new cabin bag charges.



If anyone is confused about why some airline companies have reduced card surcharges following the

OFT investigation,then even more confusing is how some are seemingly already taking measures to

recoup any shortfalls by introducing new baggage charges.


Now traditionally the major airlines have included hand baggage within the base ticket.

Up until 9th July Wizz Air did so too...and 10kg at that.


Today they announced their so called "New Cabin bag policy"


So for those who are wondering,Wizz are now defining between a small cabin bag and a large cabin bag.


A small cabin bag is what they deem as 42x32x25cm or smaller.The weight allowance of 10kg remains the same.

This size bag will be free from further baggage charges from 9th July.



Any bag that exceeds this size,will now cost 10 euro.

But it still must be the same size as the prev limits for fitting into the overhead bins.


Wizz say they are introducing this new baggage policy as a trial to "Incentivise passengers to bring smaller baggage

aboard the aircraft "


This seems odd since there are very few passengers who board flights with only a laptop bag.


Wizz claim this trial on selected routes will improve on time performance and result in better travel experience...

although they are not so quick at how they have arrived at this amazing feat of ingenuity.


They add;


With fewer large items onboard, the cabin will be less crowded and the boarding process will be easier and faster for the benefit of all our passengers.


Now assuming that the smaller baggage will all be under the seats (which they tell) that means LESS space around the seating.


No I am afraid I am not convinced at all.

Even if they were to scrap the £14 per return card surcharges...they will still be 6 euro in pocket.


Nice try.


They have not updated their website either with this as of 16.49 on 9th.July.

The notification has gone out by emails.
