Carry-On Baggage Allowance

Related: Aeroflot Sizes: Luggage Allowances, Seats…

Wizz Air’s carry-on luggage policy allows passengers to bring one personal item free of charge. This item should be no larger than 40 x 30 x 20 cm in size to ensure it can easily fit under the aircraft seat. The weight limit for carry-on luggage is 10 kg. If you need to bring an extra item on board, you should get Wizz Priority.

Wizz Priority passengers have an allowance for a trolley bag in addition to the carry-on item. This bag should measure 55 x 40 x 23 cm without wheels and handles. However, the wheels/handles shouldn’t add more than 5 cm to the overall dimensions. The trolley bag should fit in the overhead bin in the cabin.

This isn’t the only advantage of Wizz Priority since you also get to board the plane before other passengers. There’s also a dedicated desk for Wizz Priority users so that you have a faster experience at the airport check-in.

If you don’t want Wizz Priority, you still get to bring one item as long as it meets the carry-on luggage size requirements. Any bag that’s larger than the provided dimensions will be subject to oversize charges.

You are allowed to carry liquids into the cabin as long as it’s in a container with a maximum capacity of 100 ml. This container should be packed inside a 1 Litre transparent plastic bag that’s resealable to ensure it can be screened without challenges at the airport.

Some additional items you can bring without paying extra fees include:

  • Your mobile phone
  • A coat or outer garment
  • A book, magazine, or similar reading resource
  • A small crib or foldable baby stroller
  • Food for a baby under two years
  • Mobility aids for disabled passengers

There are items that we recommend you carry on board the cabin rather than placing them in your checked luggage.

These belongings include:

  • Medication
  • Money
  • Valuable items like jewelry, precious metals, and precious stones
  • Liquids
  • Art pieces
  • Personal, identification, and official documents
  • Keys
  • Required travel documents

Checked-In Baggage Allowance

Related: Air France Sizes: Luggage, Seats…

Wizz Air Airlines allows passengers to bring up to six bags as checked-in luggage. The baggage size dimensions in L X W X H are 171 x 149 x 119 cm. There are three weight allowances for your bags so that you choose one that meets your needs conveniently. You can have a bag of 10 kg, 20 kg, and 32 kg.

There’s a limited number of ways you can combine the different weight limits for checked-in bags.

Here’s a brief overview of how many you can bring in each weight category:

  • 10 kg – one bag
  • 20 kg – six bags
  • 32 kg – six bags

Keep in mind that you’ll pay checked-in bag fees for each item you bring. You can only pay for three checked bags online; if you need more, you’ll have to pay for them at the airport.

Special Luggage Allowance

If you are traveling with items that don’t automatically count as luggage, find out how you can carry them in this section.

1. Sports Equipment

Wizz Air allows you to enjoy air travel with your sports equipment at an affordable cost.

We’ve listed some of the common sports equipment you can transport on Wizz Air during your flight:

  • Ski equipment
  • Snowboarding equipment
  • Golfing equipment
  • Jumping poles packed in fabric sacks
  • Diving equipment
  • Bicycles

2. Musical Instruments

If you have a musical instrument, it’ll have to be inside a hard case to qualify for travel in the cabin. Additionally, the recommended dimensions for the case should be 80 x 40 x 23 cm (L x W x H).

Unfortunately, the only way to bring an instrument as a carry-on item is with Wizz Priority benefits. The instrument will replace your trolley bag and sit inside the overhead cabin. You can’t bring another item on board if you have a musical instrument.

Some examples of instruments that easily fit these requirements include:

  • violins
  • trumpets
  • clarinets
  • flutes
  • violas
  • ukulele

Of course, if your musical instrument doesn’t adhere to the Wizzair baggage allowance, you’ll need to check it in as luggage. If it still doesn’t qualify as checked baggage because of its size and weight, you can book an extra seat for transporting it. When transporting an instrument on an aircraft seat, it’ll have to be on the ones by the windows. You can’t have it on the first row or the emergency exit row seats.

An instrument that’s larger than a cello, eg. a harp or double bass, will need a “Limited Release” tag as you check it in. This tag is for items that Wizz Air won’t accept liability for.

3. Cremated Remains

You are also allowed to carry ashes on Wizzair aircraft. However, you’ll need a safe container to take it as your carry-on luggage. You’ll need to have a certificate of cremation and a death certificate as you check in.

4. Electronic Devices

There’s no issue if you want to use your electronic device on board. All you need to do is ensure it’s on Flight Mode and you are good to go. However, when the plane is taking off and landing, you’ll need to store large electronic devices like laptops.

If you can’t use flight mode, you’ll have to switch off your phone.

There are some electronic devices that you can use unrestricted during the flight such as:

  • Implanted medical devices
  • Heart pacemakers
  • Hearing aids
  • Electronic nerve stimulators

Unfortunately, you are not allowed to carry hoverboards or drones on the plane as carry-on or checked luggage.

5. Mobility Aids

If you are a passenger with a disability, you can carry or check in two pieces of mobility equipment without additional charges. This means that you won’t have to pay for your wheelchair, crutches, or walking frames. Passengers with broken legs with plaster unable to bend their knees have to pay for two seats.

If you need a guide dog because of visual impairment, you are allowed to have one on the flight.

Traveling with Babies and Infants

Related: TUI Airways Sizes: Luggage, Seats…

Passengers with infants and babies afford some special privileges that make the flight more comfortable. For instance, these passengers get free priority boarding allowing them to choose seats ahead of others. They also get Security Fast Track to reduce the amount of time taken during security screening.

You also get to carry more items besides your carry-on allowance.

Check out the list below to see what you can carry for your infant:

  • A nappy for each hour of the flight
  • Baby clothes
  • Pacifiers
  • Baby wipes
  • Small toys
  • A foldable baby stroller

Luckily, you get to carry an extra bag measuring 40 x 30 x 20 cm to carry the baby’s belongings. Plus, the stroller will be loaded into the plane’s hold at no additional cost.

If you’d like your baby to fly in the comfort of a car seat, that can also be arranged. By paying for an extra seat at normal rates, you can take a car seat on board the aircraft. The car seat will need to have a rear-facing design to be accepted on the plane. It also needs a safety latch that can be used to secure it to the passenger seat with a seat belt.

You should know that the only place the car seat is allowed is on the window seat. It will not be installed in or around emergency exit rows. The cabin crew is not responsible for mounting the car seat in place so you’ll have to do it yourself.
