GlobeAir releases Alexa skill for private jet bookings

The perfect Alexa skill for the smart traveller

'Alexa, ask GlobeAir to fly me to the Formula 1 Monaco GP'. 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.

Plan your next journey by private jet

With the help of Alexa

When entering the main menu after starting the skill, you may start your Quote Request by saying:

  • 'Alexa, ask GlobeAir to search for a flight'
  • 'Alexa, ask GlobeAir what are some popular destinations'
  • 'Alexa, ask GlobeAir I would like to search for a flight'

And in German:

  • 'Alexa, sag GlobeAir ich möchte einen Flug suchen'
  • 'Alexa, frag GlobeAir was sind beliebte Ziele'
  • 'Alexa, sag GlobeAir ich möchte einen Privatjet buchen'

Why investing in voice-first technology?

The voice assistants revolution

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.

The reasons behind GlobeAir's Alexa skill release

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

The Alexa skill used to improve customer service

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.
