flydubai offers HD movies to passengers during flights

Azerbaijan, Baku, Dec. 7 /Trend/

Dubai's innovative low cost airline, has reached yet another milestone, having become the first airline in the world to show high definition (HD) movies from all six major Hollywood studios, the airline's report stated on Friday.

The airline introduced its In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) system in December 2010 with HD films from Paramount Pictures and Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. Now, two years later, the HD debut of The Bourne Legacy from NBCUniversal has brought the full spectrum onboard. flydubai also has HD titles from Warner Bros, 20th Century Fox and Sony Pictures Entertainment.

"From day one, we have aimed to offer our passengers the best in-flight experience and the IFE is a significant part of this. The team has worked incredibly hard to forge relationships with these studios to bring the widest variety of entertainment to flydubai, ensuring our customers have unparalleled choice and viewing quality,"the CEO of flydubai, Ghaith Al Ghaith said.

As the launch customer for the 'Fiber-To-The-Screen®' ('FTTS®') system by Lumexis, flydubai became the first airline in the world to show HD movies simultaneously to every seat back. The feat was achieved thanks to the system's fibre optic technology, which provides a much higher bandwidth and faster data transfer than copper networks.

flydubai offers 25 HD films including new titles The Bourne Legacy, The Dark Night Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man. In total, the airline has 198 movies from Hollywood, Bollywood, Russia and the Arabic film world, in addition to 162 TV episodes, 324 audio albums and 36 games, with more titles introduced every month.

The improved IFE content comes one week after flydubai received two Mercury Awards, which were held in conjunction with the International Travel Catering Association's exhibition in Abu Dhabi. The airline took home both the Systems and Process Development award along with an additional trophy for Environment / Sustainability in recognition of the benefits of its IFE. In total, through choosing the Lumexis model over a legacy system, flydubai currently saves $2.37 million on fuel and reduces carbon emissions by 7.5 million kilos every year.

"Winning these two awards is a wonderful achievement for us. Our IFE continues to set new standards in the industry, which enhances customer experience while also streamlining processes for our cabin crew. To have received the sustainability award shows that airlines do not have to compromise on service quality to maintain a commitment to reduce fuel burn and associated carbon emissions," Al Ghaith added.

Established in March 2008, flydubai is fastest growing start-up airline in the world. Since commencing operations in June 2009, the airline has established an operational route network of more than 50 destinations across the Middle East, Africa, Indian Subcontinent, Asia and Central & Eastern Europe and has built up fleet of 27 aircraft. Owned by the Government of Dubai, the carrier supports the city's commercial and tourism sectors by serving all travellers and providing them with affordable air links to a range of destinations..
