In a move that’s sure to be music to many travelers’ ears, American Airlines has announced the launch of a free, inflight Apple Music partnership on US flights starting Friday, Feb. 1.

In order to access Apple Music at no additional cost during domestic American Airlines flights, subscribers simply connect to the complimentary inflight Wi-Fi, open Apple Music and start browsing the more than 50 million songs, playlists and music videos available on the platform. For passengers who don’t already have a subscription, Apple states that customers “can get Apple Music, sign up onboard and receive free access for three months.”

Once connected, passengers will have access to “the world’s most exciting new music and unique city-themed playlists for their journey, in addition to exclusive content such as in-depth artist interviews and today’s hottest sounds on the Beats 1 global livestream.”

In a statement, Apple Music vice president Oliver Schusser said, “For most travelers, having music to listen to on the plane is just as important as anything they pack in their suitcases. With the addition of Apple Music on American flights, we are excited that customers can now enjoy their music in even more places. Subscribers can stream all their favorite songs and artists in the air, and continue to listen to their personal library offline, giving them everything they need to truly sit back, relax and enjoy their flight.”
