KLM first airline with verified WhatsApp business account

WhatsApp and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines have started a unique test for a new service on WhatsApp. KLM now offers customers around the world booking confirmation, check-in notification, boarding pass, flight status updates and asking questions in 10 different languages on WhatsApp via the official WhatsApp Business application. KLM is one of the first companies and the very first airline worldwide with a verified WhatsApp business account.

Together with a small number of businesses, WhatsApp is testing ways for businesses to communicate with customers using WhatsApp. WhatsApp wants to create value for both customers and the businesses they connect with in their daily lives. This pilot program is part of that effort. To this end, WhatsApp has created an enterprise solution that makes it possible for businesses like KLM to connect with their customers in a fast and personal way on WhatsApp. The rollout has already started in a limited number of countries, and the service will become more widely available in the coming days and weeks. 

“I am very proud that KLM is the world’s first airline with a verified WhatsApp account. This unique partnership with WhatsApp underlines our position as an aviation pioneer. We want to be where our customers are and, given the 1 billion users, you have to be on WhatsApp. With an account verified by WhatsApp, we offer our customers worldwide a reliable way to receive their flight information and ask questions 24/7. This truly is a major next step in our social media strategy.” - KLM President & CEO Pieter Elbers

Miyu is a brand-new Korean-formulated skin care from Amway Philippines 

Anything Korean is such a big hit here in the Philippines. In fact "kinain na daw tayo ng sistema ng mga korean drama's" saying was made. Kidding aside, KDrama really did showcase the Korean culture and it was so amazing. From the kilig gestures, cheesy lines, love for their very own heritage, amazing food and of course the not to be missed walang pores, and super pretty skin of the actors and actresses. Hay, inggit much!

At my 30ish years of existence, I still love going to birthday parties particularly kiddie parties :) I don't know if it's just me but the happiness is overflowing and I always get that fuzzy feeling that brings back childhood memories. I love parties but organizing one for my kid demands a lot of time, energy and focus. For some, organizing a party is such a therapy but for most of us, it is such a stressful task. Good thing Max's recently launched their Kiddie Party Packages together with Chickie Boy's Birthday Bash.
