Emirates intros entertainment playlist syncing ahead of travel

Emirates Airlines has introduced a new function on its app to allow customers to create personalized playlists ahead of their flight and sync it to their seats once on board.

Customers can plan their trip more effectively and maximize their onboard experience by using the Emirates app to browse the expansive entertainment catalogue at any time.

ice, the inflight entertainment system of Emirates, has reached a new milestone of over 4,000 channels of on-demand entertainment. The catalogue includes over 1,000 movies, popular television box sets, tens of thousands of music tracks, podcasts, and games.

Sir Tim Clark, president of Emirates Airline, said: “This latest functionality on the Emirates app elevates the customer experience even before they step onto the aircraft. Our customers can now browse the unmatched content on offer and create personal entertainment playlists at their leisure, and once comfortably settled in their seats on board, they simply sync and press play.”

The syncing capability is currently available on over 100 Emirates Boeing 777 aircraft and will be made available progressively across the entire fleet, including A380 aircraft in the coming months.

With a global customer base, Emirates offers entertainment in 44 languages and each month over 100 movies are added to the system. Emirates ensures its youngest customers are catered for with a large selection of children’s movies and TV channels.

In addition to over 75 Disney, Marvel, and children’s movies, there are also over 50 TV channels, including Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, CBeebies & the Disney Channel.

ice also features varied content such as Emirates’ own Food and Wine Channels giving customers a behind-the-scenes look at how it creates its onboard menus; expert-led LinkedIn Learning courses; as well as uTalk language courses offering lessons for beginners.

The Emirates app, which is free to download on iOS and Android devices, is a one-stop travel companion allowing customers to book flights, hotels, car rentals, tours, and attractions.

In addition to the ice catalogue, travelers can browse through their flight’s menus and wine lists up to a month before the departure date. 

The Emirates app also features 3D seat maps which allow customers to navigate the interior of the Emirates A380 and the Emirates Boeing 777 during seat selection and explore the spacious cabin before they board.
