GlobeAir releases Amazon Alexa Skill for the Smart Traveller
‘Alexa, ask GlobeAir to fly me to the Cannes Film Festival’. Does this sound like the future of travelling? Wrong- it’s happening right now. Groundbreaking Austria-based jet operator GlobeAir is releasing its Amazon Alexa skill for immediate private jet bookings. From today, it will be possible to book a private jet with the pure power of your voice. The English version of the GlobeAir Amazon Alexa skill is now available at amazon.co.uk, whereas the skill’s German version is available at amazon.de.

Why investing in voice-first technology?
Use cases for people who possess a voice-first device like the Amazon Dot, the Amazon Echo or the Google Home still pertain to some basic commands. We use our voice-first assistants to play music, switch on and off the lights of our homes and some of us may use it for very low-risk online purchases. However, voice assistants are set to revolutionise the way we manage life. Soon, voice assistants will replace our assistants by managing our agenda and appointments for us. To invest in voice-first technologies means to gain time and simplify our lives.
GlobeAir makes bookings real-time
Why has GlobeAir developed its own Alexa skill? To commit to an entirely customer-driven travelling experience means to invest in making headway in the latest technologies and Amazon Alexa is one of the most used voice assistant software since the launch of AI voice-first technologies.
“We were very excited on the day we submitted the skill for review. For us, what matters the most is to contribute to creating memorable customer experiences for the traveller,” says the VP of Sales and Marketing.
This, and according to a recent report by VoiceLabs, the Alexa store is increasingly investing in the addition of travel-related skills. When you need a flight at short notice, access to the booking process should be as fast as it can be. Voice-first technology achieves this, making it possible to immediately request a service.
The customer is king
With real-time quoting, bookings which take seconds and guaranteed availability, GlobeAir focuses on delivering a memorable travelling experience to its passengers. When the demand for 24/7 availability and excellent customer service are top priorities, the possibility to book a flight with a simple voice input will surely give GlobeAir an advantage over the competition.
“Our team is passionate, and we have excellent industry knowledge. We are confident that GlobeAir is just starting to set the standards for the technological breakthrough in business aviation,” says GlobeAir CEO Bernhard Fragner.
