“Due to a significant decline in demand for the Debrecen-Milan Malpensa route, Wizz Air will cancel this flight on the 16th March”.

Passengers with reservations for the flights concerned will be automatically informed at the earliest possible time, but no later than 14 days before departure, and will be re-routed to an alternative route.

Passengers who purchase their tickets on wizzair.com or on the airline’s mobile app will receive an email notification in which they can choose between a full refund of their fare or a credit of 120% to their Wizz account.

Wizz Air announced that it will reschedule Israeli routes due to a fall in demand due to a coronavirus infection and will cancel some flights to Tel Aviv between March 11th and April 2nd. It applies for flights from the Debrecen-Tel Aviv route, and there will only be 2 flights a week thereafter, until further notice.
