Gdańsk, May 31, 2016 – AirHelp, one of the most successful travel startups in recent years, will make its new home in Gdansk’s state-of-the-art Olivia Business Centre in June, according to leasing agent Colliers International.
AirHelp is a Y-Combinator startup, which helps air passengers from around the world get compensation from the airlines when their flight has been canceled, delayed or overbooked.
The company is expanding rapidly – when it started back in 2013 there were only a handful of employees, while today the company has grown to over 200 people globally -- and it plans to double the number of its staff by the end of 2017.
AirHelp’s European headquarters will eventually be located in the upcoming skyscraper Olivia Star complex, which is planned for delivery in April 2017. Colliers International advised the tenant in the leasing process.
"We know that moving to OBC will help us to foster our team’s comradery and develop our products even faster. Providing our employees with a state-of-art, spacious work environment is integral to our corporate culture and to our company’s mission as a whole," said AirHelp CEO Henrik Zillmer.
"AirHelp is an example of unusually dynamic firm with interesting working culture. While looking for the best location for our client, we paid special attention to flexibility of space and the possibility of its further expansion. We found it all in Olivia Business Centre. Once again Gdansk proves to be a great place for the development of companies from the modern services sector,” said Błażej Kucharski
