Klm launches meet amp seat
The Chief Commercial Officer of Air France KLM in Spain and Portugal, Tjerk Heukelom, says that with Meet & Seat, “KLM takes a step forward in social networks. This new service connects passengers and aims to offer a more inspiring journey”, within the new trends in the airline industry.
With this new tool, the passengers reservation can link your Facebook profile or LinkedIn to the flight in which intend to travel, to see who is on board and contact with other passengers who are in the same sector, have common interests or are preparing to participate in the same event, making the trip a much more interesting experience.
explia that, “for example, it can find out if someone who is known is traveling on the same plane, or to know who will be present at the same Conference in the United States. Through Meet & Seat you can arrange an appointment for a coffee before embarking, choose adjoining seats, or share a taxi after”.
passengers can only access other participants to Meet & Seat after linking your Facebook or LinkedIn profile to your flight. The participants can choose what personal information of Facebook or LinkedIn wish to share with other passengers.
Tool is used through “manage my booking”, when passengers can choose their seat – 90 days in advance and up to 48 hours before departure of the flight, you can contact other passengers; and, in principle, available on intercontinental flights, in test, on flights from Amsterdam to San Francisco, New York and SÃ£o Paulo. Coming soon will be extended to other routes intercontinental.
