You can now use TikTok on every American Airlines flight, the company announced on Monday.
The airline has added the social media app to its roster of inflight entertainment, meaning that all travelers will be able to leisurely scroll through their For You page in 30-minute increments for free.
Customers will be able to log into their TikTok accounts by enabling airplane mode, connecting to the “AA-Inflight” signal and selecting the TikTok ad for free access in the Wi-Fi portal. For those who do not have an account on the platform, American Airlines is also allowing travelers to download the app inflight, free of charge.
“Faster Wi-Fi allows us to deliver diverse inflight entertainment options and invest in innovative partnerships with platforms like TikTok,” AA Managing Director of Premium Customer Experience and Onboard Products Clarissa Sebastian said in the statement. “Customers play the lead role in helping us better understand what content they want during their inflight experience and TikTok is one of the platforms they love on the ground.”
“We’re thrilled to work with Viasat [inflight internet services] to give customers free access to TikTok while they’re in the air as well,” she added.
At this time, it’s unknown whether TikTok will remain a permanent inflight option, as the addition is “promotional” in nature. For the time being, though, the app’s endless supply of entertainment might just be the best onboard distraction of all time.
