Air Canada has announced the expansion of its in-flight entertainment with the addition of Apple TV+ original programming.
The partnership marks Air Canada’s latest investment in the customer experience, adding original programs including Ted Lasso, Bad Sisters, Severance, Foundation and many more for its global customers.
Earlier this year, Air Canada was recognized by Global Traveler as Best Airline for Onboard Entertainment for the fifth consecutive year, and by the Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX) with the Passenger Choice Award for Best Entertainment in North America. With 420+ movies, 1,000+ TV episodes, 130+ music albums, podcasts and more, customers can enjoy the best programming from boarding to landing, says John Moody, Managing Director of Product Design at Air Canada.
All content onboard Air Canada’s inflight entertainment equipped aircraft is complimentary for all customers. Air Canada’s partnership with Apple follows the airline’s recent collaboration with Mattel which brings more family fun with some of the most popular kids’ shorts.
In May, Air Canada and Bell began offering free messaging for all Aeroplan members worldwide on all Wi-Fi equipped aircraft across Air Canada’s fleet, including Air Canada Rouge and Air Canada Express flights. Customers can send and receive text-based messages via onboard Wi-Fi using popular messaging apps including Apple’s iMessage, Meta’s WhatsApp and Messenger, Rakuten’s Viber, and Messages by Google.
Last November, Air Canada became the only Canadian carrier to offer live Canadian TV featuring English and French channels, giving customers the ability to cheer on their favorite sports teams by watching global sporting events in real time, as well as live news onboard equipped flights.
