Apple announced Wednesday morning that starting Friday, Apple Music subscribers will be able to listen to their Apple Music library while flying American Airlines, with no need to purchase Wi-Fi access.
Starting Friday, Apple Music subscribers can enjoy their access to over 50 million songs, playlists and music videos on any domestic American Airlines flight equipped with Viasat satellite Wi-Fi with no Wi-Fi purchase required. American Airlines is the first commercial airline to provide exclusive access to Apple Music through complimentary inflight Wi-Fi.
“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 access Apple Music on an American Airlines Flight equipped with Viasat satellite Wi-Fi, do the following:
- On any domestic American Airlines flight, connect to the complimentary inflight Wi-Fi and open Apple Music.
- Listen to your library, the Beats 1 Global Livestream or curated playlists.
- Sit back, relax and enjoy your 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 a subscription can get a subscription by signing up onboard and receive free access for three months.
