Wizz Air check-in

David Eiselt updated 29. 12. 2023

Wizz Air offers online check-in and check-in at the airport. Please note that only the first option is free.

Online check-in

Every passenger is required to check in. The whole process is simple and only takes a few minutes at most.

On wizzair.com, click on Check-in in the menu, log in and fill in the necessary details. You will then receive a boarding pass that you can print or save on your phone or tablet. A legible QR code is important. The whole process can be made even easier with the mobile app(Google Play / App Store).

Online check-in is available in time:

  • 24 hours to 3 hours before departure

If you have paid for your seat selection, you can check-in as early as 30 days before departure.

On some flights outside the EU, online check-in may not be possible and you will have to go to the airport counter. Last updated list of airports that do not offer online check-in:

  • Tirana
  • Zaragoza
  • Moscow
  • Marrakech
  • Agadir

In this case, check-in at the airport is free of charge.

Check-in at the airport

You can check in at the airport if you have selected WIZZ Go or WIZZ Plus & Flex tickets or paid for the Airport Check-in service, which costs 13 eur per passenger.

Airport counters open 2 hours before departure and close 40 minutes before departure. Some airports close counters earlier, 1 hour before departure.

We always recommend you arrive at the airport on time as Wizz Air has shared check-in for several flights and you may not be able to check in if there is a queue. This also applies to those who have online check-in and only go to the airport to check in their checked baggage.

Seat selection

When checking in online, you can choose a specific seat for a fee, but if you don't want to pay for this service, you can skip it and have a random seat assigned to you for free.

Beware, however, that Wizz Air will deliberately seat groups of multiple people. If you want to sit together, choose and pay to select specific seats or use Seating Together for 10 eur per person per flight.

If you're travelling with a child, the system won't let you proceed to pay for your ticket without selecting and paying for a seat. When travelling with a child under 14 years of age, you must pay extra to select a minimum of two seats so that the child always sits next to an adult.
