Wizz Air Abandons Hundreds of Bulgarians in Paris, France

The low-cost airline Wizz Air has involved itself in yet another scandal, as hundreds of Bulgarians are stuck in Paris, France, due to cancelled flights.

On February 26, 2018, hundreds of Bulgarians have found themselves stuck at the Beauvais–Tillé Airport in Paris, France, as the airline Wizz Air has canceled their flight to Sofia, Bulgaria. Besides leaving them stranded, the company has denied reimbursing the travelers and has only offered to cover their hotel expenses, which is in contradiction with European law, according to which, passengers should be compensated for cancelled flights. The alternative options presented by Wizz Air to its clients were to either wait until the end of the week and travel on Friday, March 2, 2018 or catch a flight to either Skopje or Craiova from where the trip to Sofia was not any of the company’s business.

The stated reason for the flight cancelation is the bad weather conditions, where, at the moment, Sofia has been buried in snow. A quick check by the left-out passengers revealed that all other flights from and towards Sofia are moving on schedule, which has left them feeling bitter about the situation. Whatever happens, a group of people travelling from Paris to Sofia are stuck on the airport, left without an opportunity to reserve a spot on another plane, as Wizz Air refuse to reimburse them for the inconvenience.
