The first airline bot is now available for Facebook Messenger

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines made the announcement in a Facebook post (of course). With the help of bots, you’ll be able to “receive your KLM flight confirmation message, access your KLM boarding pass, receive check-in reminders, get flight status updates, and have your customer service questions answered, right from Messenger,” said Facebook.

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); = id; js.src = “//”; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));

Receive your booking details via Messenger

Use Messenger to get on board. All your travel info in one place.
