AirHelp traces its root back to January 5, 2013 by Nicolas Michaelsen, Greg Roodt and Henrik Zillmer. They are former employees of Moshi Monsters, an online game for children 6-12 years old. AirHelp was discovered by TechCrunch and on the road to string of success, the company won the “Spark award” by Rackspace in May 2014. To sum up their awards and recognition, in as early as a year the travel site was known to be the best Danish travel startup in the Nordic Startup Awards.
In an interview with Pixr8, Nicolas shared the vision of AirHelp when he said:
“We are moving into a space, where we want to be able to help you whenever anything goes wrong on your air travels. It’s becoming more of a platform where we, based on the data we have, we can be able to help you the second something goes wrong.
That’s where we’re really headed and the air travel industry has just for so many years been a race to the bottom, so airlines have been neglecting their passengers and we see that we’ve come up with a model where the airlines can have happier customers and customers can actually get help when something goes wrong!”

Let’s get to the ball game. AirHelp promptly shares the message “Get your money back” which entices travelers who had problems dealing with cancelled and delayed flights before with a money back guarantee within three minutes. This alone will attract consumers with dilemma into their site. The features of AirHelp will redirect travelers to a page where they have to enter their location and destination including the date and number of stops of their alleged flight. CNN once said that “Since it launched, AirHelp has been doing the dirty work on behalf of its customers, and it’s not afraid to take airlines to court.”
AirHelp really did make a big help to its customers and troubled passengers. On Trustpilot, 438 AirHelp reviews gathered a total score of 9.2/10 which leaves them with an almost perfect score in an exam. Most reviewers are saying that AirHelp has excellent service and works as promised. The efficiency of the site is bluntly being appreciated by their consumers.

Points To Reconsider
I hope AirHelp won’t get offended with this review, but in my thoughts, “Help” depends on how the consumers view the assistance or help they received. What I mean is, it was considered a help because the troubled passenger was able to get the refund or solution to their problem from the alleged airline. But a percentage was cut off from their money back and paid to AirHelp’s assistance? So it somehow shows that AirHelp sues the airline’s negligence and put the money into their benefit by covering up with the word “Helping”.
