Location-based Travel App, Autio, Announces International Expansion Into Ireland With JetBlue

SANTA BARBARA, CA. MAR. 17, 2024 - Autio, the location-based audio entertainment app co-founded by actor Kevin Costner, announced today its expansion into Ireland. This launch marks the first country outside of the United States with full Autio coverage. In tandem, the company will be growing its partnership with JetBlue to give customers access an exclusive Ireland Playlist, via their AVANT seatback screens.

This announcement comes on the heels of JetBlue announcing that it will offer flights from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Boston Logan International Airport to Dublin Airport, kicking off on March 13, 2024, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. All JetBlue passengers and crew on inaugural flights from New York City and Boston to Ireland in March will receive a complimentary 30 day subscription to the Autio app and a 28% discount on any Autio subscriptions.

“We’re thrilled to announce Autio’s first leap beyond U.S. borders with our expansion into Ireland, setting the stage for Autio’s forthcoming exploration into countries worldwide throughout 2024,” said Woody Sears, CEO and co-founder at Autio. “In parallel excitement, we’re delighted to expand our partnership with JetBlue to elevate the travel experience for their customers with immersive audio storytelling experiences, whether they’re tuning it to the rich narratives of Ireland or embarking on journeys within the United States. Together with JetBlue, we’re redefining the way that people engage with the world, one story at a time.”

Autio will be launching over 10,000 stories for Ireland, along with an Ireland Playlist exclusively for JetBlue passengers including stories on the Cliffs of Moher, Dublin’s famous Temple Bar, the Guinness Storehouse, U2’s Bono, UFC legend Conor McGregor, the vast Phoenix Park, St. Patrick’s Day Festivals, and more. Autio Playlists are comprised of bite-sized stories featured on the app, carefully curated into subjects and locations of interest.

Autio will be expanding into additional countries across the globe throughout 2024, including Portugal, Australia, Japan, Thailand, India, Mexico, and more. Embracing a commitment to curiosity and exploration, Autio aims to serve as a conduit to an increasing range of stories on a global scale, inviting users to embark on unique adventures and connect with the world.

With a collection of 22,000+ unique short stories in the United States and Ireland, Autio offers a travel experience like no other, personalizing journeys with stories tailored to each location’s spirit and history. Autio’s geolocation technology intuitively plays stories about landmarks, cities, and towns as users pass by, painting a multi-dimensional picture that listeners are unlikely to get from a history book or visitor’s guide. Listeners can enjoy tales narrated by celebrated voices like Kevin Costner, John Lithgow, and Phil Jackson.
