Air France embarks on WhatsApp for a more direct Relationship with its customers
New Delhi, 31stJanuary 2023: Eager to adapt to the digital habits and uses of its customers, Air France is offering a new communication channel with customers on WhatsApp. This free service is now available for Indian customers in English 24/7, in addition to French, Italian and Brazilian/ Portuguese.
Messaging is transforming interactions between people and businesses, and with 2 billion daily users, WhatsApp is how many people and businesses are connecting.
Already present on several messaging and social media platforms, notably Facebook Messenger, Air France is continuing to strengthen its commercial relations by offering more proactive customer service.
This offer supports customers before, during and after their flight with:
- Instant answers to common questions via the chatbot Louis and, for more specific answers, contact with an Air France representative.
- If customers opt in, notifications will be sent to them at each key moment of the journey: from boarding pass issuing to flight information (change in schedule or boarding gate; last call before the plane door closes, etc.) or the baggage delivery belt on arrival.
In addition, personalized promotions will allow customers to upgrade their travel experience, with the option of selecting more spacious seats or purchasing access to the Air France lounge at the airport.
