Dutch airline KLM has become the world's first airline to offer booking confirmation check-in notification, boarding pass and flight status updates on Twitter and the Chinese equivalent WeChat.

Beginning Tuesday, customers flying KLM Royal Dutch Airlines can find all their flight information on the Twitter and WeChat accounts and contact the social media team 24/7 .

The new feature will be available for travelers who book their tickets and check-in via KLM.com. To receive updates via social media, passengers must opt-in to the service.

It's the latest social media strategy for KLM.

Over on Twitter, KLM has more than 2.2 million followers and receives more than 250,000 mentions on a weekly basis.
