Universal Link for Alexa Companion App

From my App I want my users to be able to add a skill to their Alexa account. So I want to use a URI or Universal Link to launch the Amazon Alexa companion app and point it at my skill. I've seen other Apps doing this but I cannot find any reference for the universal link or any URI/App Links?

Looking at the Amazon Universal Links file at https://www.amazon.com/apple-app-site-association file I don't think there is a Universal Link and poking about I've found that the URI Alexa:// will launch the App so now I just need to know how to get it to show my skill!

Users can enable skills through the skill's description page on Amazon.com. The link to that page is the best solution currently available.
