  • When requested, provide proof of a valid booking reference number, passenger name record (PNR), or e-ticket with the name of the AirHelp Plus member on it.

If you fail to do so you will not benefit from this Additional Protection. 


AirLuggage allows qualifying members to receive money, regardless of whether they obtain any amounts through the Compensation Service, when their luggage has been delayed or lost as described in the insurance policy which can be downloaded from the AirHelp Plus dashboard.

7. LOUNGE ACCESS

The lounge access service (“Lounge Access”) as described below is provided by COLLINSON SERVICE SOLUTIONS LIMITED (“Collinson”), a company registered in England and Wales  with company number  02474708,  Registered  office  address:  Cutlers  Exchange,  123 Houndsditch, London, EC3A 7BU, England. 

The Collinson Terms of Use and Privacy Policy, as updated by Collinson from time to time,  apply to your use of Lounge Access.

Only AirHelp Plus Members with the Complete plan will be entitled to Lounge Access.


Description of Lounge Access

AirHelp Plus Complete members will have access to selected Lounges as follows:

Members will become eligible for Lounge Access if the flight is registered at least 7 hours prior to the scheduled departure.  

The  departure  of the  flight  will  be  monitored  by Collinson’s flight  tracking  system.  Subject  to successful prior registration, Collinson will provide Members with a lounge access voucher via email and SMS in the event that Collinson’s flight tracking system identifies that the Member’s flight is delayed by more than 60 minutes (the “Delay Threshold”), is canceled less than 6 hours before the scheduled departure time, or is canceled after the scheduled departure time.

Access to the email address or mobile number Members provided at registration and the ability to display the lounge access voucher is a condition of use of Lounge Access. A delay which meets or exceeds the Delay Threshold can be announced either as one single period of delay or as a result of a consequence of multiple incremental shorter delays totaling the Delay Threshold. 

Collinson will rely solely on their flight tracking system to determine if Members become eligible for lounge access. Members accept that Collinson does not warrant the accuracy of the flight tracking system and Members will not rely on it to track their flight departure time. In the event of a qualifying travel delay or cancellation, a lounge access voucher will be provided to Members via email and SMS on the day of their flight. 

The lounge voucher will be valid for a period of ninety (90) days from the date on the voucher and can be used within the validity period at any participating airport. Only the named individuals in the email confirmation will be eligible to receive Lounge Access. Lounge Access is provided to the Members on a non-transferable, non-refundable, and non-changeable basis. No cash or credit alternatives will be offered. Where applicable, by accessing the airport lounge, Members agree to abide by the rules and policies of the lounge.
