Flag carrier Air Canada is to offer Audible talking books on its IFE system.
“We’re thrilled to announce Audible as the latest global brand to work with Air Canada as we continue to expand the in-flight entertainment choices we offer our customers. Entertainment is an important part of the in-flight 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 in-flight programming,” said John Moody, Managing Director, Product Design at Air Canada.
“Audible is committed to creating exceptional listening experiences for its customers around the world – including as they travel for pleasure or business,” said Georgia Knox, Canada Country Manager at Audible. “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.”
Air Canada’s partnership with Audible follows the airline’s recent expansions to its in-flight entertainment options. In May, Air Canada launched free text-base messaging for all Aeroplan members worldwide on all Wi-Fi equipped aircraft across the fleet.
