Hot on the heels of winning an APEX Passenger Choice Award for Best Entertainment in North America in September, Air Canada has become the first airline to bring Disney+ Originals to the skies through an in-flight entertainment (IFE) system. The airline’s latest collaboration with the Disney entertainment brand will offer original programming, with options suitable for all ages of traveller.
The deal also marks Air Canada’s most recent investment in its family-focused travel experience, adding exclusive Disney+ Originals such as the first three episodes of Loki Season 1 and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Beginning this month, customers will be able to enjoy a selection of episodes from Disney+ Original series including Limitless with Chris Hemsworth, Cars on the Road and Zootopia+, as well as original movies such as Disenchanted and Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers.
Recent other family-focused Air Canada collaborations with Disney have included the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida themed in-flight safety video launched for the summer travel period, a Walt Disney World Resort in Florida themed children’s room at Toronto Pearson’s Transborder Maple Leaf Lounge, and a special aircraft livery celebrating the launch of Disney and Pixar’s acclaimed movie Turning Red, with more to come.
“We are thrilled to bring Disney+ Original series and films to our inflight entertainment, further solidifying our expansive range of leading content. Families with kids and enthusiasts alike will enjoy watching familiar favourites and exciting new Originals from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and more. Taking in a Disney+ Original is a great way for our global customers to start or end their journey with us,” said John Moody, managing director, product design at Air Canada.
