Press release for FlightDelayRepay, a new company guaranteeing an instant payment of £100 for delayed airline passengers.

This media exposure will give FlightDelayRepay a strong basis for their ongoing talks with airlines and tour operators, as well as banks, credit card providers and a world-leading online retailer looking to provide the service to their customers.
