Air Canada has just unveiled its new safety video, which is both beautiful and predictable.
Air Canada shows off Canada with new safety video
Air Canada’s new safety video is called “Ode to Canada,” and it takes passengers on a journey across Canada while depicting the safety features of each aircraft in an unconventional way.
The video sure gets around, and is filmed in the following places:
- Newfoundland & Labrador’s Gros Morne National Park
- Manitoba’s Little Limestone Lake
- Yukon’s winter
- Ontario’s social hospitality
- Northwest Territories’ Northern Lights
- Nunavut’s vast expanse
- Prince Edward Island’s Cavendish Beach
- Alberta’s foothills
- British Columbia’s North Shore mountains
- Saskatchewan’s wheat fields
- Quebec’s art and culture experiences
- Nova Scotia’s Lunenburg
- New Brunswick’s Hopewell Cape

It has been almost seven years since Air Canada’s previous safety video was released. While the previous video was rather conventional, I did appreciate the gay couple they subtly included in the video, since I can’t think of any other airline that has done that.

Air Canada’s new safety video is great!
I think Air Canada’s new safety video is pretty awesome. The scenery throughout the video is breathtaking, and this is a video that shouldn’t get old quickly, even for frequent flyers.
That being said, I wouldn’t say the video is very original. I can’t count the number of airlines that have taken a similar focus with their safety videos, showcasing their country to highlight aircraft safety features. This is almost exactly what we’ve seen from Air France, Middle East Airlines, Oman Air, Philippine Airlines, Singapore Airlines, and Qantas, among others.
It’s not surprising this type of safety video is so popular, because it makes sense — airlines can highlight safety features while also showcasing their home country, giving visitors something to look forward to, and residents a feeling of home.
Air Canada has just released its first new safety video in about seven years, and it showcases Canada’s beautiful scenery. The video is well done, and follows the same theme we’ve seen from so many other airlines.
