Air Canada Expands Inflight F&B Options;
Air Canada has expanded its inflight food and beverage offerings,
increased the choice of entertainment available for children on
its flights and made improvements to its app.
The updates are the latest made by the airline
as part of its 'More to Travel' initiative, a series of ongoing
improvements underway across its travel products and services.
"At Air Canada, we know that a comfortable and
enjoyable onboard experience is an important part of our
customers' travel journey," said Jacqueline Harkness, Managing
Director, Products and Services at Air Canada. "We're pleased to
offer more food and beverage options across a variety of tastes
and preferences including products not available today on any
Canadian airline, as we continue improving Air Canada's overall
- Earth's Own oat milk, a Canadian non-dairy
milk alternative—a first for a Canadian airline;
- Blue Moon Belgian White and
Hop Valley IPA craft beers, as well as Vizzy Strawberry Orange
Mimosa Hard Seltzer;
- Rosé from Provence, France and Aperol Spritz (Air
Canada Signature Class on international flights); and
- Butter chicken with rice pilaf and cauliflower peas masala are
some of the new menu options available for Premium Economy and
Economy customers, on select flights.
Air Canada has also partnered with Mattel to enhance
the travel experience for its younger passengers. The entire suite of shows and movies adds dozens of hours
of additional kids' content to Air Canada's in-flight entertainment, with more new content partners
expected to be added soon.
"Air Canada is proud to be the only Canadian
airline offering exclusive Mattel favourites like Hot Wheels in
the City, Thomas and Friends: Learning with Thomas, as well as
episodes of Barbie's vlog—which comes hot on the heels of the most
anticipated movie release of the summer," said John Moody,
Managing Director of Product Design at Air Canada. "At the height
of family vacation season, parents and kids can enjoy their flight
with an unparalleled range of inflight entertainment options
including some of the most popular and well-loved kids' shows."
The latest upgrades to the Air Canada App,
available for free through the Apple App Store or Google Play,
allow for quick and easy access to important travel information
throughout the journey including:
- Mobile boarding passes that are easier to use at
security and during boarding with seamless updates;
- Passport details of Aeroplan members linked to
their profile, streamlining international check-in;
- Easier airport navigation with integrated maps of
key Air Canada and Star Alliance airports; and
- Ability for Air Canada Signature Class and Premium
Economy customers to pre-order in-flight meals on select
international flights departing Canada.
"Our customers want information and digital tools
that meet their real-time needs when navigating busy airports. Our
focus is on delivering contextual travel information directly to
our customers' devices via our award-winning Air Canada App, with
even more improvements to come," said Derek Whitworth, Managing
Director, Customer Digital Technology at Air Canada.
