We offer extra attention to disabled and reduced-mobility passengers and to passengers with special needs.
In order to make your journey safe and comfortable, you need to inform Wizz Air at least 48 hours before the scheduled departure of the flight about your physical disability or reduced mobility, or any other condition that may require medical care.
Your request can be made online during the booking process or by contacting the Special Assistance Call Centre. We recommend calling us on the day you make the reservation.
If you have special needs, please make sure that you are present at check-in 2 hours before the scheduled departure time. This is so that we can complete the check-in procedure on time.
If there is reasonable doubt that you can complete the flight safely, without requiring assistance during the flight, we reserve the right to require a medical certificate confirming your fitness to travel by air. This must contain explicit medical approval for your carriage by air.
