Air Canada has teamed up with Audible to boost its inflight entertainment (IFE) system.
The airline’s latest investment brings 160 hours of Canadian Audible Original Audiobooks and Podcasts onboard.
Canadian content is available in both English and French, including Sidney Crosby: The Rookie Year, Seven Truths, Women Talking, Roudoudous en laponie, and Main-Basse sur le monde.
Genres range from sports, true crime and family, to wellness, action & adventure and comedy.
Audible is offering Air Canada passengers two free months of membership, so they can enjoy their new favourites at home or on their next trip, too.
The collaboration with the audio storytelling provider follows Air Canada’s recent inflight entertainment expansion with original programmes and family-friendly content.
John Moody, Managing Director, Product Design at Air Canada, said: “We’re thrilled to announce Audible as the latest global brand to work with Air Canada as we continue to expand the inflight entertainment choices we offer our passengers.
“Entertainment is an important part of the inflight experience, and with a growing interest in audio stories, the addition of inspiring and engaging articles and interviews in audio format complements the diverse range of content available in our unparalleled inflight programming.”
Georgia Knox, Canada Country Manager at Audible, added: “Audible is committed to creating exceptional listening experiences for its customers around the world – including as they travel for pleasure or business.
“Through our collaboration with Air Canada, we’re able to inspire, entertain and inform more listeners than ever before on their journeys. Travellers will have access to an extensive list of content including a selection of Canadian Audible Originals that we develop with up-and-coming talent and some of the country’s biggest names.”
