Emirates has won the Best Inflight Entertainment Award in Airline Ratings 2024 Airline Excellence Awards with its multi-award winning ICE system.

Emirates was one of the first airlines to introduce seat-back videos for economy-class passengers almost 30 years ago and has led the field ever since and today the system has 6,500 channels making it a clear winner for Best Inflight Entertainment.

Passengers enjoying an Emirates flight can access a world-class entertainment library with more than 45 Academy Award® winning films, 5,000 channels of on-demand entertainment, over 1,500 movies and 1,500 hours of TV, as well as music, podcasts and audiobooks across 40 languages, 5 channels of live TV including news from BBC, CNN and Sky News Arabia, and two channels with live sports coverage- Sport 24 and Sport 24 Extra.

Passengers can also curate their own ice experience before their flight, simply by browsing and pre-selecting movies or TV shows on the Emirates app, which can then be synced to ice the moment they board, maximising the seamless travel experience. Editor-in-Chief Geoffrey Thomas commenting on the award said “Our editors were unanimous in their praise for Emirates ICE system as a step above.”

“That early investment in inflight entertainment has paid off for Emirates and just when you think it can’t do it better – it lifts the bar once again.

The most-viewed genres on ice are documentaries, action, thrillers, and comedies.

Emirates continually updates its inflight content, adding hundreds of movies, TV shows, podcasts, and music channels each month to its extensive entertainment library.
