Wizz Air is allowing passengers to book flights without including all of the passengers’ names at the time of booking with their new ‘Flexible Travel Partner’ service. The service is targeted for customers who want to secure a low-cost fare far-in-advance but are not sure who will accompany them on the flight.
When purchasing the Flexible Travel Partner service, customers only need to provide the name of one passenger but can book a ticket for up to nine further passengers without including their name at the time of booking. Customers can provide the additional names at any point by accessing their online booking before online check-in is required. The fee for using the service is €10 (USD$12 at time of writing) per flight.
“Following the recent introduction of our Fare Lock service, we are delighted to announce the addition of another innovative service to our ever-growing product portfolio. 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.“, said George Michalopoulous, the CFO of Wizz Air.
Wizz Air’s Fare Lock service was introduced recently, which allows customers to hold a selected fare for a period of 48 hours which costs 3€ per person.
