We’ve all been there; flight delays, cancellations and overbookings.

When it happens, it can ruin your day; make you late for an important meeting or worse miss it altogether.

AirHelp is an app and a website that can quickly act as your advocate when the going gets rough.

It only takes about three minutes for them to see if you are eligible for real compensation, so you can make a more informed decision before accepting anything from the gate agents.
