Entertainment on American Airlines is getting even better. Starting Friday, American Airlines customers will have access to Apple Music
to stream more than 50 million songs, playlists, and music videos on any domestic flight equipped with Viasat satellite Wi-Fi. American Airlines is the first commercial airline to provide exclusive access to Apple Music
through complimentary in-flight Wi-Fi.
No matter how you like to spend your time in the air, there's something for everyone on American flights. American continues to build a world-class experience and is investing in new entertainment and connectivity options throughout its fleet. In addition to launching Apple Music, American is also:
Installing high-speed Wi-Fi on domestic aircraft, with more than 570 aircraft complete today, and full completion mid-2019
Adding free live TV on more than 300 domestic and 155 international aircraft, with additional rollouts continuing this year
Providing free access to wireless entertainment throughout American's fleet, bringing great movies and television shows right to each customer's device
Installing power at every seat on mainline aircraft and two-class regional jets
"Our customers want to make the most of their time when flying with us. That's why we're investing in high-speed Wi-Fi, the newest movies, live TV and now Apple Music," said Janelle Anderson, vice president of Global Marketing at American. "Providing customers with more ways to stay connected throughout each flight is one way to show we value their business and the time they spend with us."
"For most travelers, having music to listen to on the plane is just as important as anything they pack in their suitcases," said Oliver
Schusser, vice president of Apple Music. "With the addition of Apple Music
on American flights, we are excited that customers can now enjoy their music in even more places. Subscribers can stream all their favorite songs and artists in the air, and continue to listen to their personal library offline giving them everything they need to truly sit back, relax and enjoy their flight."
To enjoy Apple Music
during flight, customers on Viasat-equipped aircraft can connect to Wi-Fi at no cost and log in with their Apple Music
subscription. Customers who don't already have an Apple Music
subscription will also be able to connect to Wi-Fi at no cost, sign-up onboard and receive free access for three months. Apple Music
is available on iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mac, Apple TV, PC, Android, CarPlay, HomePod, Sonos, and Amazon Echo.
American Airlines customers can enjoy the world's most exciting new music and unique city-themed playlists for their journey, in addition to Apple Music's exclusive content such as in-depth artist interviews and today's hottest sounds on the Beats 1 global livestream.
