Eurowings is to offer Napster in flight this summer.
It will be delivered by Lufthansa Systems and Napster who are working to deliver selected playlists and audiobooks for adults and children.
Through Lufthansa System’s BoardConnect, Napster will offer Eurowings passengers a selection from the music-streaming company.
Aside from having access to the extensive selection of music and audio books from Napster, the greatest feature is that passengers will no longer have to use the built-in aircraft screens to access the media content.
They will be able to connect their own smartphones or tablets with BoardConnect via onboard WLAN.
The Napster playlists, as well as audio books will be updated monthly and provide plenty of popular and up-to-date content for all ages.
Olivier Krüger, CEO of Lufthansa Systems:
“Diverse onboard entertainment programs are increasingly becoming a competitive advantage for airlines. We are pleased to have found in Napster an important partner, who brings with it its music expertise and will in the future provide our BoardConnect platform with an exciting program.”
Patric Niederländer, Vice President of Business Development Europe at Napster:
“Napster has always stood for innovation. We are pleased to have developed, together with our partner Lufthansa Systems, an attractive proposition with which we move into another business segment. Our aim is to offer all music lovers the best and most multifaceted listening experience – whether on the ground or in the air.”
In addition to the selected music program on board, Napster will initially offer all Euro Wings passengers discounts after their flight. That means that all passengers who register during the flight can then enjoy three months of Napster for just one euro and discover new music through playlists, recommendations and advice.
