Gone are the days where you would be cut off from the internet when flying on an airplane. Most major airlines have equipped their aircraft with in-flight Wi-Fi functionality, granted, it comes at a price. If you’d like to stream music via Apple Music while flying without having to pay for in-flight Wi-Fi, then book your next flight with American Airlines.
Apple today announced that Apple Music subscribers will be able to stream music and videos on any domestic American Airlines flight fitted with Viasat satellite Wi-Fi. They will be able to do this for absolutely no charge at all.
It mentioned in the press release that American Airlines is the first commercial airline to offer exclusive access to Apple Music through complimentary in-flight Wi-Fi. So not only will passengers be able to listen to the tracks they have saved for offline use, they will also be able to access the service’s entire library when they’re amidst the clouds.
To take advantage of this, passengers on Viasat-equipped AA aircraft just need to connect to in-flight Wi-Fi and log in with their Apple Music subscription. Those who don’t have one will be able to sign up onboard and get a free trial for three months.
