Wizz Air lets you book without all passenger names – for a price

WIZZ charge a fee of ​€​10.00 per passenger, per flight in the booking if using the service

Wizz Air now lets passengers book flights without adding all the names in the booking.

Hungarian low-cost carrier, Wizz Air, has come up with a great idea. It now lets you book a number of seats at that great fare without giving all the passengers names at the time of booking.

Wizz Air’s new Flexible Travel Partner service means that, at the time of booking, only one name and the number of passengers travelling is input. All the other passenger details have to be finalised by the time of online check-in. And that closes three hours before departure.

So passengers can see a great fare, book it and then confirm later who they are travelling with – friends, family and others.

How it works?

  • When creating the booking, passengers select the number of passengers, flights and required services, like seats, but need to add only one passenger name.
  • All charges for all passengers are paid at the time of booking.
  • All passengers names have to be finalised by the time of online check-in
  • if any names for the flexible travel partner(s) are not given, the reservation for those passengers  will be cancelled.

Ancillary revenue

Wizz Air is a low-cost carrier. So nothing is for free. The new ‘service’ is actually another way for the airline to make more ancillary revenue.

How they do that is to charge a fee of ​€​10.00 per passenger, per flight in the booking if using the service.

​The flexible travel partner fee and the ticket fare are not refunded if all passenger names are not provided at the time of check-in.

Passengers can get more information about the Flexible travel partner service from Wizz Air.

Wizz Air is continuously searching for candidates for its Flight Attendant / Cabin Crew positions for its Central and Eastern European bases.
