Wizz Air cabin bags

In a move more typical of another Luton Airport resident Wizz Air is to charge for what it terms “large cabin bags”. 

The airline is to trial the policy on the Katowice route from 1 August.  Passengers will have to pay €10 (about £7) per piece up to 55cm x 40cm x 20cm (21.75in x 15.75in x 8in) and will board after the priority passengers so there is space in overhead lockers.  In fact the size is much in line with most legacy and budget carriers.  The maximum standard Wizz Air size is now 42cm x 32cm x 25cm (16in x 12in x 10in).  Yes wider.  Work that one out.  If the trial between Luton and Poland is successful, the policy will be rolled out through the whole Wizz Air network.

In another move the airline has introduced a three times per week service between Luton and Debrecen.  It plans to introduce flights from Eindhoven and Milan-Malpensa to Hungary’s second largest city, 150 miles east of Budapest, for the winter programme. www.wizzair.com
