Wizz Air offers flexible options for their passengers to check in for the flight. When their check-in opens depends on if you have pre-purchased your seat. Here’s all you need to know.

Check-in with Wizz Air

If you pre-purchased your seat with Wizz Air, you can check in online anywhere from 30 days before your flight up to three hours before your departure. This feature is available online only for passengers who purchased their seats during booking or on their reservation page after the fact.

If you did not pre-purchase your seat, check-in does not open until 24 hours before your flight. This is when your seat assignment is generated, so you’ll want to check in as close to 24 hours before the flight as possible.

If you are checking-in in person, it begins 2 hours before your flight and ends 40 minutes before your scheduled departure.

How to Check In

You can check in for your Wizz Air in one of three different ways. This inclines online, via their free mobile app, or in person at the airport. Online and mobile check-in is always free, and you may pay a fee to check in in person at the airport. If the other options are unavailable, in-person check-in will be free of charge.


Wizz Air opens flight check-in at different times depending on your fare and if you pre-purchased your seats. Those who booked in advance can check in up to 30 days before their flight, while those who didn’t will need to wait two to 24 hours, depending on how you want to check in.
