Virgin America adds Spotify and NYT content
Virgin America last week announced its new partnership with streaming audio provider Spotify and The New York Times, which will offer a curated collection of daily NYTimes.com content onboard the airline’s new ViaSat WiFi-equipped aircraft through March 2, 2016.
Spotify users will be able to stream the provider’s entire catalog of 30 million songs. In addition, Spotify provides song pools based on hundreds of millions of playlists to help Virgin America curate over 60 city-inspired music “Mood Lists” that will inspire and excite guests for their destination. Passengers can enjoy in-flight playlists such as New York’s “Empire State of Mind”, Chicago’s “Welcome to the Windy City,” all of which can also be found at virginamerica.com/spotify.
Virgin America’s boarding music is also available as the “#SpotifyOnboard” playlist. New Spotify users can listen for free or take advantage of a free Spotify Premium 30-day trial.
The New York Times content includes breaking news from Business, Travel, Technology and “Most Viewed”on any connected device onboard ViaSat WiFi-equipped aircraft flying on mainland flights. Passengers may also sign up to receive a free 30-day New York Times All Digital Access subscription, good for use both in the air and on the ground.
