TRAVEL TO THE CLOUD

Join the first hackathon organised by AirHelp, Amazon and Sabre.
On June 9-10, 2017, in two Polish cities we will be working on the common goal: to help people with disabilities travel more comfortably.

Idea

Within 24 hours you can change the world… and win 10 000 PLN – do you accept the challenge?

How to buy a ticket if you are blind? Is it possible to survive at the airport when you can’t hear any message about your flight? Do you need to inform the airline about the wheelchair upfront? And in case of a taxi?

Within 24 hours come up with an idea that can change the travel experience for people with disabilities!

What’s the plan?

Creativity and passion for technology will unite over 250 people gathered in Gdansk and Krakow in order to solve real problems of real people. Together we can do everything. We can literally change the world for some passengers. It doesn’t matter how tech savvy you are – there will be a chance to join a more experienced team, learn, discuss ideas, share knowledge, inspire one another. Still sounds like a hell of a challenge? No worries, many experts will be on hand in the role of speakers and mentors. That should make it easier and help inspire you.

We provide you with

workspace, company of amazing, inspiring people sharing knowledge with you – speakers, mentors and teammates. No worries, you won’t starve – bread is on us 😉

What should you take?

Bring with you enough passion and energy for 24 hours drive and your computer or any other equipment that will make your work easier. Maybe you already have a crew? Make sure all of you sign up and mark in the form that you already have a squad.

What’s the goal?

was founded in 2013 to end your flying woes once and for all. In a nutshell, we help air passengers around the world secure compensation for delayed, canceled, or overbooked flights. We fight for millions of travelers who are unsure of their rights, lack the time, or lack the expertise to embark on the claims process independently. We believe that air passenger rights weren’t made for airlines to interpret on a whim.

 

We’re 20+ nationalities speaking more than 15 languages — basically we’re the true definition of global citizens! You can work remotely or at one of our awesome offices located in some of the world’s most exciting cities. We take our work seriously, but not ourselves.
