Air Canada is the first airline globally to bring Disney+ Originals to the skies through its in-flight entertainment (IFE) system.
Disney+ is the dedicated streaming home for movies and shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic, along with The Simpsons and more. In Canada, it also includes the general entertainment content brand, Star.
The airline’s latest collaboration with Disney offers passengers more opportunities to enjoy original programming for all ages while onboard.
It also marks Air Canada’s most recent investment in its family-focused passenger experience, adding critically-acclaimed and exclusive Disney+ Originals such as the first three episodes of Loki Season 1 and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Beginning this month, passengers will be able to enjoy a selection of episodes from Disney+ Original series that include Limitless with Chris Hemsworth, Cars on the Road and Zootopia+, as well as Original movies such as Disenchanted and Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers.
Providing Disney+ Originals builds on Air Canada’s recent collaborations with Disney on several family-focused items, including:
- the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida themed in-flight safety video launched for the summer travel period
- a special Walt Disney World Resort in Florida-themed children’s room at Toronto Pearson’s Transborder Maple Leaf Lounge
- a special aircraft livery celebrating the launch of Disney and Pixar’s acclaimed movie Turning Red
John Moody, Managing Director, Product Design at Air Canada.:
“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.”
