Contribution to Legal Tech
Marianna figured out the legal-tech project, able to help millions of passengers experiencing canceled or delayed flight pro-active way. Global aviation statistics are saying more than 20,000,000 passengers a year are affected by disrupted flights. 85% of them are not receiving any money even if they are eligible for compensation. Thanks to Marianna`s innovation, air-passengers can learn their right and receive the step-by-step manual, just in time when they experience problems in airports. It is useful mainly for occasional travelers, non-English speakers with poor language skills. Moreover, some passengers can claim compensation from airlines through Marianna’s company easier than ever before.
