The biggest airline in the world was awarded for both Best Premium Economy and Best In-Flight Entertainment. Further, it ranked 5th in the list of the top 25 airlines at the annual Airline Excellence Awards for 2024. For its ICE system, Emirates has received Best IFE for nine years running. In the early 1990s, the airline was among the first to provide seat-back movies to economy customers.

Since then, it has dominated the market, and with 6,500 channels now, it is unquestionably the best in-flight entertainment system available. Emirates allow its passengers to customise their own ice experience prior to their trip by using the Emirates app to browse and pre-select films or TV shows. In fact, these choices can then be synchronised to ice the minute they board. This helps maximise the seamless travel experience!

The airline’s entertainment library features over 1,500 hours of TV, music, podcasts, and audiobooks in 40 languages. Additionally, you can choose over 45 Academy Award-winning films! They even feature five live TV channels featuring news from BBC, CNN, and Sky News Arabia. Not to mention, live sports coverage, Sport 24 and Sport 24 Extra.
