Air Canada has announced a new partnership with Audible, the leading provider of premium audio storytelling. This is the latest in Air Canada’s recent investment in in-flight entertainment (IFE) system, including content from Apple TV+ and Mattel. The Audible partnership offers audiobooks and podcasts, providing more variety for travellers.
Air Canada and Audible Partnership
Audible (owned by Amazon) is a membership service that provides customers with an incredible selection of audiobooks, podcasts, exclusive originals, and more. For the first time, passengers on Air Canada flights will have access to Canadian Audible Original Audiobooks and Podcasts as a part of the IFE system. The collaboration initially introduces 160 hours of Audible Original Audiobook and Podcast content. The catalogue will feature English and French Canadian content, ensuring a broader appeal to travellers. This is in addition to Air Canada’s current 2,500+ hours of IFE, which comprises 420+ movies, over 1,000 TV episodes, 130+ music albums, and other podcasts.
Promotional Offer: In celebration of the collaboration, Audible offers a special promotion for Air Canada customers. New users of Audible.ca can avail of a 2-month free trial. This includes two credits for any title and unlimited streaming from the Audible Plus Catalogue. However, it’s crucial to note that this offer is available until September 30, 2024, at 11:59 p.m. PT and has specific terms and conditions, including the standard post-trial membership fee of $14.95/mo. + applicable taxes.
This partnership with Audible is one of Air Canada’s recent IFE expansions. Previously, the airline introduced free text messaging for Aeroplan members and live Canadian TV onboard, becoming the only Canadian carrier to do so.
I have always equated audible with road trips and never considered them an in-flight amenity. As someone who has lost the knack of reading on flights, this partnership may help me catch up with some of the titles I have been meaning to. The Air Canada and Audible partnership significantly enhances the airline’s IFE, ensuring travellers have a more diverse and engaging entertainment choice while on board. If you’re keen on exploring the Audible library, now might be a great time to take advantage of the 2-month free membership offer. Safe travels and happy listening!
