ASAPP AI Drives Digital Adoption in JetBlue's CX Transformation

JetBlue joined forces with ASAPP in late 2019 to transform its customer support experience with AI. The mission was to elevate customer satisfaction, preserve the human element, and prioritize the well-being of JetBlue's crewmembers. The journey towards a remarkable customer experience transformation experienced significant progress within a span of less than two years.

Digital contact share soars

Against a backdrop of industry-wide scrutiny on efficiency and cost reduction, JetBlue and ASAPP aligned on a shared mission –  to leverage artificial intelligence that would allow JetBlue to transform the customer support experience by supporting and amplifying the efforts of its dedicated crewmembers.

In less than two years, JetBlue achieved an impressive fivefold increase in its digital contact share. This achievement was made possible by launching support for customer contacts on various digital channels, including Apple Messages for Business, Google Business Messaging, Web and App chat, and WhatsApp. In addition, we added support for JetBlue’s Spanish-speaking customers on digital platforms.

Generative AI augmented customer interactions saved JetBlue crewmembers an average of 280 seconds per conversation. In Q1 2023 alone, this AI-driven efficiency translated into significant savings of 73,000 workforce hours. Additionally, it empowered crewmembers to swiftly address complex customer problems, leading to shorter wait times for customers.

The integration of virtual agent experiences facilitated streamlined interactions and contributed to a remarkable 36% year-over-year growth in containment, with a 45% containment rate achieved in May 2023. This success demonstrates the effectiveness in providing AI-assisted solutions to customer inquiries that minimize the need for human intervention.
