The airline wants to check the planes’ engines

According to London World, Wizz Air is planning an accelerated engine inspection, but flights will still be affected by the process.
“Wizz Air today announces that due to expedited inspections of several of our GTF engines commissioned by Pratt & Whitney, we have made changes to the grid which have resulted in the cancellation of some flights on selected dates between certain destinations,” an airline spokesman said.
Solutions convenient for customers were also presented immediately.
“Affected passengers will be offered an alternative flight schedule, a full refund on the original payment method or a 120% refund. the original price of the airline booking. Where a booking was created through a travel agency, we advise customers to contact the agency that owns the booking to make the necessary changes.”
