5WPR lands AirHelp, airline passenger rights advocate. It will foster relationships with media across travel, business, lifestyle and regional outlets, as well as inserting thought leadership commentary into larger travel narratives and policy discussions. Focusing on topics including flight disruptions, passenger rights and flight compensation owed, 5W will use AirHelp's proprietary data to cement its position as an industry leader.
