Virgin America is all about bringing a little fun back to flying and music is a key component of this -- from the soundtrack in our bathrooms to the 3,000 free MP3 tracks featured on our in-seat entertainment system," said Charles Ogilvie, Director of Entertainment and Partnerships at Virgin America. "VH1's incredible catalog of music videos will take this to the next level, by offering our guests a totally unique and fun onboard music and entertainment experience." All music videos are free of charge to every guest on every Virgin America flight."
VH1 connects adult music lovers to the artists they love as well as to acts new to the scene," said Nigel Cox-Hagan, Senior Vice President, Creative Group and Consumer Marketing, VH1. "Partnering with Virgin America to offer our most popular videos and artists on-demand on Red(TM) is an excellent way to extend our music mission and provide fans with the opportunity to check out new artists and to hear and see music even at 35,000 feet."
