Dočkalová joined Kiwi.com in 2015 when the customer service department made significant changes. She has been part of the team responsible for taking Kiwi.com’s customer service experience to the next level.

Kamil Jagodzinski, Kiwi.com’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: “Eliška has proven herself time and again and I’m delighted that she takes this expanded role in which she will drive the business forward at a critical time in our growth.”

Since joining Kiwi.com, Dočkalová has played an integral part of our success story in the area of customer service, having decreased complaints and increased satisfaction ratios. She then worked on extending the Kiwi.com service to include the Kiwi.com Guarantee.

The market-leading Guarantee protects customers from flight delays, cancellations and schedule changes, and — if relevant — contributes to the customer’s transfers, overnight accommodation and food and drink.

In 2018, Dočkalová led the Customer Service Innovation team who were focused on operational excellence, improvements within the self-service area and helped increase an improved self-service rate with Kiwi.com’s Voice Assistant.
