Wizz Air offers free online check-in options to keep their fares affordable and make the process convenient for passengers. The availability of online check-in depends on whether you have purchased a seat during your booking. If you've purchased a seat, online check-in is available from 30 days up to 3 hours before the scheduled departure time. In case you haven't purchased any seats, check-in will become available only 24 hours before departure. This blog post will provide a detailed overview of the check-in process, guidelines, and additional information you need to know before boarding your Wizz Air flight.
Online Check-In Process
- Check-in online: Visit the Wizz Air website or use their mobile app to enter your booking details and check-in for your flight.
- Print your boarding card: After completing the online check-in process, print your boarding card.
- Present the printed boarding card and travel documents at the gate: Arrive at the airport and ensure you're at the gate with your printed boarding card and travel documents at least 30 minutes before the scheduled departure time.
- Non-EU travel documents: If you hold non-EU travel documents, you must present yourself at the check-in counter to have your documentation checked and your boarding card stamped.
- Baggage drop-off: If you have baggage, go to the baggage drop desk at least 40 minutes before the departure time, or follow the local rules as indicated in the "CHECK-IN TIMES" section on the Wizz Air website.
Travelling within the Schengen Area
While checking in online for flights within the Schengen area, passengers are not required to fill in travel document details, since these details aren't required for such flights.
Visa Details During Online Check-In
On certain routes, you might be asked to provide visa details during the online check-in process. If your destination doesn't require a visa, simply fill in the field with 'xxxxx' characters.
Online Check-In for Children
Children under 14 must be accompanied and checked in online by a passenger older than 16.
Changes and Additional Services After Online Check-In
Even after completing the online check-in process, you can still change your reservation (except for the flight and name) or purchase additional services. Make sure you go through all the additional services and make any changes you need before heading to the airport to ensure a smooth and hassle-free trip with Wizz Air.
