On Wednesday (June 23, 2021), Air Canada announced the premier of ‘Ode to Canada’, their first new onboard preflight safety video in nearly seven years. The video takes guests on a stunning journey across majestic Canada and features the airline’s very own uniformed team members, as they explain the safety features of each aircraft. In Wednesday’s announcement, Air Canada’s Vice President – Brand, Andrew Shibata, said,


“Air Canada's new Ode to Canada safety video is a celebration of the best of Canada from coast-to-coast-to-coast. Including our own uniformed employees who are responsible for the safety of every Air Canada flight, our new video presents all aircraft safety instructions in a compelling, associative way by drawing on some of our country's most spectacular scenery and visually connecting viewers to each province and territory through all four seasons. It has been almost seven years since we last produced a safety video. In choosing to feature Canada, we are also aiming to provide a warm welcome to Canadians travelling home from abroad and inviting all of our customers to join us in exploring everything that Canada has to offer in support of the country's tourism and hospitality sectors.”


Some of the iconic locations and places featured in the video include Newfoundland and Labrador’s Gros Morne National Park, Manitoba’s Little Limestone Lake and Yukon’s winter. Not to be missed is the social hospitality of Ontario, the Northwest Territories’ Northern Lights and Nunavut’s vast expanse. Of course, no tour of Canada would be complete without a visit to Prince Edward island’s Cavendish Beach, Alberta’s foothills, BC’s North Shore mountains or Saskatchewan’s wheat fields. Finally, guests are treated to a glimpse of Quebec’s art and culture experiences, Nova Scotia’s Lunenburg and New Brunswick’s Hopewell Cape.


Now that your seat belt is fastened, you seat is in the full upright position and your tray table is stowed, please give your full attention to your Air Canada crew members as they explain the many safety features of your aircraft.
