Wizz Air and Ryanair fined

The consumer protection authority has imposed fines of Ft 100 million on Ryanair and Ft 25 million on Wizzair, ATV reports.

Government commissioner István György told ATV that an inquiry was launched because repeated problems with baggage handling and informing passengers during the summer amounted to unfair commercial practice by both low-cost airline companies.

The ruling is open to appeal.
