Hungary’s low cost airline Wizzair will begin charging passengers to check-in at the airport starting on the first of April of 2010.
The airline hopes to encourage passengers to register and check-in online for their flights in order to keep the fares low. Wizzair slipped this information in a recent press release when they announced the launching of online check-in from UK airports. To keep their low cost fares, there will be a €5 charge for passengers checking in at the airport if the passenger registered for this service on-line or €10 if the passenger did not specify that they would check-in at the airport at the time of their ticket booking. To avoid these extra costs, its best to be organized and take the time to check-in online before heading to the airport. You can check-in for your flight on Wizzair’s homepage from 7 days to 3 hours before the departure time.
Currently you can check in online on flights departing from these airports: Brussels Charleroi, Budapest, Eindhoven, Frankfurt Hahn, Gdansk, Glasgow Prestwick, Hamburg Lübeck Katowice, London Luton, Paris Beauvais, Poznan, Prague, Sofia, Turku, Warsaw, Wroclaw and Weeze.
