Wizz Air could revise prices for flights from Kyiv to London and Budapest after introduction of free baggage allowance
Wizz Air, the largest low-cost air carrier in Central and Eastern Europe, could revise ticket prices for flights on the Kyiv-Budapest and Kyiv-London routes in connection with Ukraine's introducing the obligation for airlines to provide passengers with the possibility of transporting 23 kg of baggage free of charge.
"This will not affect tariffs on the routes operated by Wizz Air Ukraine because we do not charge for baggage weighing up to 32 kg, but after introduction of this norm we will have to review tariffs for flights to London and Budapest," Wizz Air Group Executive Vice President John Stephenson told Interfax-Ukraine.
As reported, Ukraine obliged all airlines flying from Ukraine to provide the free transportation of luggage weighing no more than 23 kg with the sum of its dimensions (length, width, height) not exceeding 158 cm. Under preliminary agreement with the air carrier, baggage with a larger size and weight can be transported. Baggage that does not meet these requirements has to be checked in by passengers for transportation as cargo.
