Emirates has introduced its new generation inflight entertainment (IFE) system, with the latest features including larger screens in First Class and Economy Class and three times the media storage. The new products can be found on EK’s newly-delivered Boeing 777-300ER and Airbus A380 aircraft.

Passengers travelling in First Class will have a more immersive viewing experience to look forward to, with IFE screens increased from 27 to 32 inches – the 40% increase makes it the largest screen on any aircraft.

“We continually upgrade our fleet, as well as our products and services on board to ensure an unparalleled travel experience. In addition to the technology, Emirates also puts emphasis on curating our award-winning inflight entertainment system and we always aim to surpass industry benchmarks. Our new generation ice system elevates the viewing experience, and offers passengers the most comprehensive movie and TV selection on any airline,’ said Patrick Brannelly, Emirates’ Divisional Vice President – Customer Experience.

With three times the media storage on the new IFE system, ice Digital Widescreen now has 2186 channels of on-demand entertainment and 1230 music channels which amounts to about 4300 hours of entertainment. This includes over 50 full TV box sets and close to 600 movies.

EK’s next generation IFE system is complemented with connectivity on board. The airline offers Wi-Fi on 142 aircraft, more than half of its fleet, and Live TV now on 75 aircraft.

Other product enhancements include new microfibre optic carpet in the First Class cabin which helps to reduce the effects of jet lag, and private suites in the centre aisle have been widened by 1.9 inches.
