Flying From Doncaster Airport With WizzAir

When I flew with KLM for the first time, I wrote about the experience. That post went down really well and so when I flew with WizzAir for the first time, I thought I’d write about that too. I think it’s always good to know what people think about an airline when you’ve never flown with them before, and if you’ve seen my Easyjet post you’ll know that I’m always honest!

For obvious reasons, this isn’t going to be a post full of photos-but I did take a plane selfie so I had something to use, photo wise. Mostly I wanted a photo to celebrate my first fully solo trip, and the fact I managed to lift my bag above my head all by myself!

WizzAir isn’t Polish like I thought, they’re actually Hungarian, though they do do a lot of flights to Poland. When I flew from Doncaster there were three flights within an hour to different Polish destinations (I think I definitely chose the best one!) and my flight cost £168 return-considering I flew on a bank holiday weekend that’s not bad at all. I did pay £7 each way extra for WizzPriority, which allowed me to take an extra small bag on board with me-well worth it because I couldn’t fit everything I needed into my Cabin Zero bag, though I was close. My extra bag meant I had room for a book, magazine, a bottle of water and all the other bits you need on a flight. I checked in online the day I flew, and could either print my boarding pass or download the WizzAir app, which is always easier-it’s so much better to be able to grab my phone rather than have to find where I’ve put yet another piece of paper.

Boarding was fast and easy, no unnecessary faffing around, and the plane seats were as comfortable as plane seats ever are. The in flight menu was typical of short haul flights but not badly priced-I paid £6 for a sandwich, cup of tea and a snickers bar and that’s not unreasonable. The crew didn’t try to push sales like some airlines do, which was refreshing.

I’d definitely fly WizzAir again. It seems that the less well known airlines are the best, judging by my experience with WizzAir and KLM!

Have you flown WizzAir before? What did you think?

    I love WizzAir and a member of there discount club and actually save 20% on all my flights with them which is awesome. I feel they are much better than Easyjet and Ryaniar sometimes

    I’ve never flown with them before (been a bit dubious to be honest) but I am glad to see they are good. I’ve had some awful flights in the last couple of years – customer service just seems to be getting worse!

    I have never heard of WhizzAire but I will check them out. I don’t have a preference for airlines as long as they get me there safe, comfortable and affordable.

    I had never heard of WizzAir but with what I have been hearing about some of the other airlines recently they sound pretty good. I think the cost sounds really reasonable and being able to download your boarding pass onto your phone is a great idea 🙂

    We don’t have WhizzAire here in the states but it sounds like a great airline to take when I eventually get to Europe. This is a great review. Glad you shared it 🙂
