Virgin Australia to add voice check in through Amazon Alexa

    Virgin Australia launched (05-Oct-2018) voice check in through Amazon Alexa, allowing passengers to check in to their flight using their voice. The carrier is the first airline outside North America to offer the feature. From early Oct-2018 passengers can use Alexa voice services to check in, obtain their flight departure time, Velocity membership number, flight number and booking reference. Virgin Australia first launched in the Alexa Skills Store in Feb-2018. Since then, the most used feature has been guests finding out their flight status, followed by asking about their Velocity Points balance.
