Wizz Air said in a previous statement about their flight cancellations: "The Wizz Air team is making every effort to restore operations, but there are factors – such as weather conditions – over which the airline has no control.

"Wizz Air has sent information about the current situation and the possibility of rebooking flights to passengers who booked directly on wizzair.com or via the mobile app.

"Passengers booking through intermediaries or travel agents should contact the companies concerned for this information."
