Wizz Air introduces allocated seating on selected routes

Wizz Air has confirmed it will introduce allocated seating to enhance customers’ travel experience.

On selected routes from May 4th and across all WIZZ routes from May 19th, customers will enjoy automatic free allocated seating, which will become part of the booking process.

Wizz Air will allocate neighbouring seats to passengers traveling together on the same booking where possible.

Customers can change their free seat allocation and choose a different seat for a fee, starting from €1 on wizzair.com or on WIZZ mobile applications any time up until three hours prior to flight departure.

Preferred seats, such as front row seats for quick disembarking or seats with extra legroom, can be reserved for a higher fee upon availability on a first come first served basis.


Wizz Air’s allocated seating will be piloted on selected routes - Budapest-Barcelona, Katowice-London, Bucharest–Dortmund - from May 4th and subsequently rolled out on all of Wizz Air’s 360 routes from 110 airports across 37 countries from May 19th.

Customers with seats booked prior to April 8th for flights with allocated seating will be assigned a seat at the time of check-in, while passengers with existing bookings including WIZZ Xtra legroom and WIZZ Reserved Seat services will be able to select their seats of choice at no additional cost.

Passengers with WIZZ Premium and WIZZ Privilege Pass memberships will be able to select any seat for free and also continue to enjoy Priority Boarding to avoid queues.

From tomorrow Wizz Air also lowers the Priority Boarding fee to just €2.
