Hungarian Gov't Office Starts Procedure Against Wizz Air
Budapest’s regional government office has initiated proceedings against lowcost airlines Wizz Air for its check-in practices which “ruin the holidays of dozens of passengers”.

According to a statement signed by Gergely Gulyás, the head of the Prime Minister’s Office, as well as Bence Tuzson, state secretary for public services, the company’s approach is “dishonest” because they “fail to guarantee services prepaid by passengers” and overlook “fundamental rules of customer protection”.

At the same time, the government office has initiated proceedings against Ryanair, too, over the company’s luggage handling practices.

Wizz Air said in a statement that one of its suppliers had experienced problems, which is why check-in had slowed down considerably on Thursday morning, with the result of several flight delays.
