Posted 4 October 2018 · Add Comment

Film fans travelling on Emirates can now look forward to even more choice as ice, Emirates’ inflight entertainment system, reaches a new milestone by offering over 1,000 movies - more than any other airline.

 

The films are in addition to TV box sets and music giving customers over 3,500 channels of on demand entertainment.

The expanded film catalogue offers over 2,000 hours of entertainment that would take 119 trips on the world’s longest A380 flight from Dubai to Auckland to get through. It is available on over 80 aircraft and includes more than 500 Hollywood hits and 600 world movies to cater to Emirates’ diverse and global customer base. Emirates buys content from every major movie market worldwide and offers films in 44 languages.

 “Travelling on Emirates has always been centred on an unmatched customer experience.  We’re proud to offer the greatest entertainment choice ever seen in the sky, with probably more choices than most people have at home!  We want to create a better-than-home experience when you fly Emirates, with the latest and best movies, great TV and a huge music selection,” said Patrick Brannelly, Emirates’ Divisional Vice President, Customer Experience (IFEC).

Each month over 100 movies are added to the system with selections ranging from all time classics like 1939’s The Wizard of Oz and Gone with the Wind to 2018 blockbusters Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and Ocean’s 8. ice also offers over 25 feature length documentaries – the most popular on board at the moment include Eric Clapton - Life in 12 bars and The Final Year about Barack Obama’s last year in office. Last month, the airline launched its own Food and Wine Channels on ice giving customers a behind-the-scenes look at how it creates its onboard menus and works with its global partners.
