Delta adds Spotify to IFE in September
Beginning in September, passengers on Delta Air Lines will be able to listen to specially curated versions of Spotify’s most popular playlists and more than 40 select podcast series curated by Spotify and Delta directly from the airline’s seatback screens.
“Our customers expect the very best in-flight entertainment when flying on Delta and Spotify is the very best in music and podcasts,” said Ranjan Goswami, Senior Vice President – Brand Experience in the September 1 announcement. “We are not only elevating the audio experience onboard, but best-in-class content also is the foundation for our vision of a more personalized travel journey in the future that customers won’t find anywhere else.”
Spotify reaches more than 365 million monthly active users in 178 markets around the world with music, podcasts and curated content that reflects the world around them.
Available only on Delta, passengers can enjoy eight specially curated versions of Spotify playlists that feature tastes of some of Spotify’s most popular playlists, including: Mood Booster, Relax & Unwind, RapCaviar and Hot Country.
The curated playlist mixtapes and podcasts will be regularly updated and expanded with new tracks and episodes to ensure customers always have the latest hits and new playlists during their journey – including selections from artists and genres they might not have discovered yet.
The new audio section lives within the familiar Delta Studio interface on seatback screens. Simply tap the “Audio” tab on the left to browse and select from available options, plug in earbuds or headphones and enjoy.
