Free Beats Music streaming takes off on Southwest Airlines

Apple has teamed up with Southwest Airlines to offer Beats Music streaming to passengers on Wi-Fi-enabled flights. Customers using Beats in-flight will have unrestricted access to the service for free. The partnership is being introduced today with a special event on a Southwest flight, complete with a Beats-branded plane, a special playlist, and more, according to Southwest:

To celebrate, a special playlist was created that will come to life with live concerts from a couple of the artists on select Southwest flights at 35,000 feet! The official Beats Music aircraft is planned to depart from Dallas Love Field to Chicago-Midway on flight 732 with Cobra Starship onboard. Customers on this flight will get a Southwest Airlines VIP backstage pass to the most elevated live concert they've ever experienced, with an opportunity to meet and receive autographs from the band.
