Air Canada in-flight entertainment system now playing Apple TV+ shows
Air Canada has announced an expansion to its in-flight entertainment system which will show Apple TV+ original programming beginning Aug. 1, 2023, which will be available for passengers to view for free on seat-back screens on long-haul flights.
The move sees Air Canada become the second airline globally to offer Apple TV+ original programming onboard, following after American Airlines announced a partnership with Apple in 2020.
“At Air Canada, we know that inflight entertainment is an important part of our customers’ travel journey, particularly on long-haul flights. We continually evaluate opportunities to expand our entertainment and introduce exclusive, current content that our customers will love. We look forward to welcoming customers onboard to catch up on their favourite Apple TV+ shows or discover new hits during their flight,” said John Moody, Managing Director of Product Design at Air Canada. “This new partnership with Apple puts us on track to increase our onboard entertainment content by more than 95 per cent since last year. We look forward to introducing even more entertainment before the end of 2023.”
The in-flight entertainment system will stream episodes of Ted Lasso, Severance, Foundation, The Morning Show, and other original content from Apple TV+.
