Singapore Airlines Launches Beta Chatbot on Facebook

Singapore Airlines has launched a chatbot.

The bot, named ‘Kris’, will initially be available on the SIA global Facebook page, and will later be made available on Singapore Airlines’ website.

Customers who visit the SIA Facebook page and reach out to the airline via Facebook Messenger will be able to chat privately with Kris and receive assistance for pre-flight-related queries.

As a beta bot, Kris will be in constant learning mode and its capabilities are expected to develop over time.

 The bot is currently trained to address queries in English related to baggage, check-in, online booking, as well as travelling with infants and children.

 Using variations of actual questions received from customers, Kris’ responses have been fine-tuned through rounds of iterations using artificial intelligence, with the aim of training the bot to provide conversational replies that can meet the needs of customers promptly and efficiently.

“SIA is committed to offering our customers more choices and greater convenience in how they engage with us - at any time of the day or night. Kris will be under constant development as we further develop its knowledge library based on what our customers are most frequently reaching out to us for,” said Mr Marvin Tan, Senior Vice President Customer Services & Operations. “Customer preferences are changing and with Kris we are taking feedback into account by expanding our servicing platforms beyond traditional contact centre and email channels.”
