Washington, DC, USA, Aug, 2017 -- Delta Air Lines’ latest test program at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) allows customers to video chat from the airport with a specialist.
Five interactive digital screens with individual receivers are now featured at the redesigned Delta Sky Assist so customers can connect face-to-face with Delta specialists. Customers simply pick up a receiver, initiate the live video chat with one touch on the screen and are on their way to anything from changing a flight to sharing feedback.
"More and more people are choosing video chat to connect in their everyday lives, so we wanted to bring that channel to Delta customers," said Charisse Evans, Vice President — Reservations Sales and Customer Care. "We have the best specialists in the business — and now, they’ll be able to deliver customer solutions in an even more personal, face-to-face way."
The Delta Sky Assist pilot project is the next phase in the Delta Reservations team’s mission to listen, care and connect in the platforms customers prefer. Delta already encourages customers to contact Reservations via social platforms like Twitter and Facebook, in addition to email and the phone.
Furthering Delta’s commitment to implementing innovative solutions that are available to all customers, one of the video screens is located on the wall at a height to better serve customers with disabilities. The design concept also features a keypad option for engagement via text, which is the direct result of feedback from Delta’s Advisory Board on Disabilities, a group comprised of Delta customers with disabilities and thought leaders in the accessibility space.
