Singapore Airlines’ (SIA) passengers can now enjoy fast and easy access to flight information from the comfort of their home, via Google Home, a voice-enabled speaker powered by the Google Assistant.
According to an announcement, the airline is the first carrier in Southeast Asia to provide such flight information with just a voice command via Google Home, which was recently launched in Singapore.
With the new service users can simply give a voice-initiated instruction to obtain information on Singapore Airlines and SilkAir flights. Information includes the most up-to-date status on departures and arrivals, dates, times and airport terminals.
SIA intends to progressively increase the amount of information available via Google Home to address more pre-flight queries.
The information provided via Google Home is an extension of the Airline’s beta chatbot, Kris, which was first made available on the SIA global Facebook page in December last year. Kris, which was developed by an in-house team, will be launched on singaporeair.com by the second quarter of this year.
Google Home devices will also be available for purchase at KrisShop.com, SIA’s online retail store, by next week.
Asian Aviation is the exclusive General Sales Agent for Singapore Airlines in Greece and Cyprus.
