In Russia

Wizz Air has been trying hard to enter the Russian market since 2008, but was unable to do so due to constant obstacles from the Russian authorities who support Aeroflot (which is highly doubtful due to the bankruptcy of Malév and the very active promotion of the S7 aviation brand). the company Siberia, which, like Malev, is a member of the Van World alliance). This was formally explained by the presence of a huge number of requirements for flights and for the carrier, but by the summer of 2013 Wizz Air still fulfilled these requirements and officially announced the opening of the first flight from Russia: Moscow (Vnukovo) - Budapest from September 23, 2013.

After the opening of flights Budapest - Moscow, the possibility of launching flights Kiev - St. Petersburg and Kiev - Moscow is being considered, although perhaps for this Wizz Air will create a subsidiary company modeled on Wizz Air Ukraine. However, representatives of Wizz Air directly declare that the creation of such a company is a very distant prospect due to the strict requirements of the Federal Air Transport Agency, but they do not intend to refuse to increase the geography of flights and the number of flights.

flight was canceled. W6 6416 from 18 2017 April year. from Sofia to Kutaisi. the airline refused to make alternative flight moreover did not return the money. generally I stole the money. on request does not meet the fraudsters.

Flight attendants on board is very beautiful. Just because they would fly again, and if we add to this the impeccable service. So nothing to say - all at the highest level.

Impressed that, despite the fact that next to me was going Muslim family stewardess did not make the slightest racial differences, providing all the same services. Moreover, I am convinced that neither each airline can boast mannered staff. I approve all 100%!

How many would not fly planes always come across brand-new and very beautiful. Photos before boarding done mass. I will definitely recommend to fly rather than travel by plane. It does not go, no comparison, though slightly more expensive.

More recently she made return ticket and to then had no problems with the purchase of tickets purchased at once in both directions. I want to say that the flight went very well. One way I did, of course, slept, but the second was able to fully enjoy the flight.

I do not know yet whether I'll fly with this airline. Planes they really are in perfect condition, but his attitude to the passengers in a bad way. It would be nice if the company's management was able to convey the information to the flight attendants that they are not the most important people on the flight, namely the passengers!

We were scheduled to fly this company in Budapest from Moscow and back. We ordered tickets went online registration and payment of luggage. Return flight was excellent, no complaints have only positive emotions. All took place at one time, very attentive stewards.
But on the way back everything was happier. When we arrived at Budapest airport, there was still an 1 hour and 15 min left before the flight. We approached the reception desk, but we were sent to the visa counter. Here the girl tells us that we went online, but due to the fact that we did not have a printed landing, we were obliged to pay 40 euros from each. In Moscow they asked to provide a telephone. We explained that we do not have that amount of money, and we were offered to pay 80 euros and buy another ticket. On this we agreed. We provided a card for payment, and then a real circus began. At first the machine did not work, then the paper for checks ended, and in the end she decided that we would wait, and she needed help to other passengers. Only in 40 minutes we managed to pay everything. And when we ran back to the registration, we were told that it was over. Of course, we did not get on the flight. We already purchased the next ticket from Aeroflot.
