Wizz Air to introduce allocated seating in May-2015

Wizz Air announced (02-Apr-2015) plans to introduce allocated seating on selected routes from 04-May-2015, with a full rollout to follow on 19-May-2015. Passengers will be allocated a seat during the booking process from 08-Apr-2015 and will be seated next to travellers on the same booking "where possible". Passengers choosing to select their own seat during booking may do so for a EUR5-23 charge for seats in the aircraft's front row, EUR3-17 for seats "upfront", EUR2-5 for seats in the "front cabin", EUR1-2.50 for seats in the "rear cabin" and EUR5-23 for seats with extra legroom. Wizz Air CCO György Abrán said: "I am delighted to share today this major improvement for our customers that comes as part of our constant development of better services and processes. Consumer satisfaction was at the core of our mission when we launched the airline over 10 years ago and continues to steer our actions every day. I am convinced that airlines' trend to re-introduce seat allocation accurately reflects what consumers now value most when travelling: an affordable airfare and a comfortable and hassle-free experience."
