S7 Airlines, a member of the oneworld®, global aviation alliance, has become one of Sber’s first partners to gain access to the new SmartMarket platform. The platform offers the option to create SmartApps, i.e., apps for the family of Salute virtual assistants. SberBox media box holders will be the first to have an opportunity to take advantage of the S7 Airlines solution.
S7 Airlines priorities the ability to constantly be on the the same page with travelers, providing access to the airline’s services on any platform that is convenient for them. SberBox users will be able to purchase S7 Airlines tickets by manually launching the app or by using their voice to activate the virtual assistant.
An additional feature is the ability to book a flight while watching a movie through the OKKO streaming service. Salute will recognize the setting of the movie and gently informs the viewer about it by displaying a small location note in the corner of the screen. You can click on it to be redirected to ticket booking. The screen will display options to select a departure date, a conveniently scheduled S7 Airlines flight, and a fare, as well as the option to pay for the booking.
In addition, the S7 Airlines app will offer seven audiovisual podcasts perfect for listening to before bedtime. The videos with ambient compositions are designed to remind you about a variety of spots on the planet. A night on the seashore in Thailand is about the sound of waves, the rustle of palm trees, and the chirping of birds, a night in an Altai forest tent is about a crackling fire, burbling river, and animal sounds, and a night flight on an airplane is about the engine sound and flight attendants barely audible announcements.
For our child passengers, SberBox S7 Airlines is developing educational cartoons on the science behind aviation. Kids will have a fun and engaging way to learn about the way planes work and why they are able to ascend into the sky.
By the end of this year, the S7 Airlines app will be available not only on SberBox, but also on the SberPortal smart display.
