Wizz Air has launched a new service allowing customers to make reservations without including all passenger names at the time of booking.
The Flexible Travel Partner service costs €10 per passenger per flight, and allows customers to make a booking for up to ten passengers, only being obliged to provide the name of one of the passengers.
The details of the remaining travellers can then be added at any point up until three hours before departure.
Wizz Air says that the new service “has been designed for customers who want to book their trip securing low cost fares well in advance, yet are uncertain who their travel partners will be”.
The Flexible Travel Partner initiative follows the carrier’s recent launch of a fare lock service, allowing customers to secure a chosen fare for 48 hours, at a cost of £3 per person per flight sector.
Commenting on the new service George Michalopoulos, chief commercial officer at Wizz Air, said:
“Flexibility is becoming increasingly important when planning both business and leisure trips. With our new Flexible Travel Partner service customers can leave the decision of who to travel with up until the last minute, while in the meanwhile securing the lowest possible fares. We continue to monitor consumer preferences and build products catered to their every need.”
