Air Canada Now Offers Apple TV+ Content

Air Canada has become the first airline in Canada and the second airline globally to offer Apple TV+ content, including TV shows and movies, for passengers on its flights.

The Apple TV+ streaming service, home to shows like The Morning Show, Ted Lasso, Silo, Severance, and Hijack, is now accessible through the Air Canada in-flight entertainment.

“At Air Canada, we know that inflight entertainment is an important part of our customers’ travel journey, particularly on long-haul flights,” says John Moody, Managing Director of Product Design at Air Canada. “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.

“This new partnership with Apple,” he continues, “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.”

Air Canada currently offers 420+ movies, 1,000+ TV episodes, 130+ music albums, podcasts and more, for passengers to watch from their time of boarding to landing. All content onboard Air Canada’s inflight entertainment equipped aircraft is complimentary.

Air Canada’s partnership with Apple follows the airline’s recent collaboration with Mattel which brings some of the most popular kids’ shorts. In May, Air Canada and Bell also 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, as well as live news onboard equipped flights.

Air Canada is Canada’s largest airline and a founding member of Star Alliance. Air Canada’s in-flight entertainment now offers 2,500+ hours of movies, TV shows, podcasts, music as well as live TV news and sports.
