How To Claim Flight Compensation With Wizz Air

If you’re feeling determined you may choose to make a flight delay claim with Wizz Air yourself, but you may come across some issues. Airlines may try to get out of paying flight delay compensation.

You might be told that the flight was delayed because of extraordinary circumstances, which makes claiming compensation impossible, when in fact the events that lead to the delay are not legally classed as extraordinary circumstances at all.

Claiming With Bott and Co

Bott and Co are experienced in pursuing claims even when the airline is adamant that they do not have to pay. Because they’re aware of our legal reputation, your compensation request is less likely to be ignored or refused if you claim it through us.

Claiming with us is simple. All you have to do is put your flight number and date in the free flight delay compensation calculator and we’ll give you an instant answer on whether you have a valid claim. We can then get to work on recovering your compensation.

We’ll send you regular email updates on the progress of your claim and transfer the compensation to your account, or send you a cheque if you prefer.

We have recovered over £2m from Wizz Air for passengers delayed more than three hours across more than 80 different routes.

We’ve won cases where the delays have been due to:

  • Airline staff, such as pilots and cabin crew, being ill or the flight is understaffed.
  • Bad weather that affected a previous flight meaning your aircraft was delayed.
  • Technical problems with the aircraft.
  • Lightning strikes
  • Bird strikes

Wizz Air might try to tell you that these are extraordinary circumstances under EU Regulation 261, but they aren’t. If Wizz Air give you any of these reasons for a delayed flight it is likely that we could still claim for flight delay compensation on your behalf.

There are only a few instances that might mean you can’t make a claim against them, they are as follows:

  • Acts of terrorism or sabotage
  • Security risks
  • Extreme weather conditions
  • Hidden manufacturing defects affecting a whole fleet of aircraft.

Some airlines use one or more of the above excuses for not paying out. We then discover the reason for the delay is not what the airline originally said.

It’s still worth exploring whether or not you are entitled to claim flight delay compensation even if you are given one of the reasons above. A high number of people who are entitled compensation for flight delay are initially denied it or ignored by their airline.

Who Are Wizz Air?

Wizz Air is a Hungarian low-cost airline serving 35 countries, including many cities across Europe, Israel and the United Arab Emirates. The airline carries millions of passengers to and from these destinations every year.

The airline is relatively new having formed in 2003 and failed to make a profit until 2012. Their head office is in Budapest, which can make claiming compensation against the airline more difficult.

Wizz Air Compensation Success Stories

Bott and Co wins flight compensation case in just 19 hours

We settled one passenger’s claim in just 19 hours when she came to us looking for help with her flight compensation claim against Wizz Air.

After suffering a flight delay of four hours on a flight from Budapest to London, the passenger tried to claim flight delay compensation direct from Wizz Air. When the airline refused to pay out, she came to Bott and Co for help and was delighted when we told her that she would be receiving flight compensation less than a day later.

Passenger misses sister’s birthday after eight-hour flight delay

We recovered €250 flight delay compensation for a passenger who missed her sister’s 18th birthday because of an eight hour Wizz Air delay.

The passenger wrote to Wizz Air asking for compensation for her delay, but the airline refused to pay her, arguing that the delay had been caused by extraordinary circumstances.

Fortunately, when Bott and Co got involved, Wizz Air agreed to pay the passenger €250 flight compensation.

Bott and Co recovers €2,400 compensation for cancelled flight

Wizz Air were forced to pay six passengers €400 each when a flight from Poland to Liverpool was cancelled due to engine blade damage.

In court, Bott and Co successfully argued that as this damage was a ‘technical problem‘ which is not an extraordinary circumstance, Wizz Air should have to pay the group flight delay compensation.
