Users have an opportunity to win free roundtrip tickets to any of KLM’s destinations
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines announced last week a Facebook Messenger service for passengers, providing around the world booking, flight confirmation, boarding pass access, check-in reminders and flight status updates, right from the app. The new app pulls traveler’s information into a single place, making it easier for customers to access it anywhere. In addition, KLM will expand its customer support through Messenger by offering customers the ability to chat live with KLM staff should they need booking support or to make last-minute travel plans and adjustments. The live chat support will be available in more than 12 languages.
KLM’s Messenger service began rolling out on March 30, 2016, and will be more widely available in the coming days and weeks. The app will work wherever KLM and Messenger operates, including nearly 140 destinations around the world. KLM is the first global airline to provide these services on Messenger.
This marks the latest expansion of Messenger for Business, as first announced last year. “We think Messenger is the best place to talk to people and increasingly, the businesses, people care most about,” said David Marcus, Vice President of Messaging Products at Facebook. “We are pleased to welcome KLM onto the expanding Messenger platform as the first airline partner. Now, KLM customers will be able to have fast, contextual conversations about their flights, all from the comfort of an app they already know and love – Messenger.”
The new Messenger service will be available to all KLM customers who book tickets via KLM.com and opt to receive information via Messenger. KLM has more than 15 million fans on Facebook.
