Passengers can also watch Shark Week on Discovery Channel via Live TV onboard Southwest Wi-Fi-equipped flights.
“Our Shark Week partnership brings fun through unique offerings for our customers and employees,” said Brandy King, director of External Communication who oversees the airline’s brand partnerships and entertainment public relations initiatives. “Whether on the ground with augmented reality experiences and gate games hosted by our employees, to in-flight exclusive content on our Shark Week On-Demand Channel, or through our social channels with engaging content and a special sweepstakes, we’ll be celebrating Sharks all month.”
In 2018, Shark Week celebrated its 30th anniversary, and is now the longest-running program event on cable.
