Flydubai to Offer Free In Flight Entertainment

The Aviator Africa Flydubai

Flydubai is breaking away from its low-cost roots by rolling out inflight entertainment across its fleet of Boeing 737s. The airline showcased the latest developments to its onboard experience at this year’s Arabian Travel Market, now underway in Dubai.

The airline has introduced a complimentary inflight entertainment streaming service to its fleet of 36 Next-Generation Boeing 737-800 aircraft earlier in May. Passengers can stream wirelessly to their personal mobile devices, laptops, and tablets. This will replace the seatback entertainment system in the economy cabin on these aircraft.

“Whether they prefer to stay connected for the duration of their flight or opt to disconnect and enjoy our inflight entertainment, passengers can now enjoy more options from flydubai,” said flydubai’s Daniel Kerrison.

“The onset of the pandemic in 2020 has reshaped the way people travel and the way airlines operate. We temporarily discontinued our onboard duty-free sales, altered the meal service to individually packed meals, disabled our touch screens, and limited movement in the cabin.

“A year on, we have gradually and safely reintroduced some of the onboard services and continue to add new features to enhance our onboard experience.”

Passengers in flydubai’s Boeing 737-800 business class cabin will keep their high-definition touchscreens. The service will provide audio content, games, and over 150 TV series and films from Arabic cinema, Bollywood, Hollywood and Russian cinema. flydubai passengers can also connect to the inflight WiFi and do their own thing

“Inflight entertainment and WiFi connectivity have become an essential part of the travel experience,” says Mr Kerrison.
