If, like us, you can only travel comfortably if you get to the airport four hours early, this is some welcome news.
DXB has been taking huge strides to keep travellers entertained throughout their journey, and optimise the whole airport experience. From mobile passports, to facial recognition and even sleeping pods in the departure lounge, the latest airport with the world’s fastest wi-fi is now offering an on-demand video streaming service in partnership with ICFLIX.
You can now stream free movies and TV shows before your flight once you arrive at DXB, with the latest Hollywood, Bollywood and Arabic entertainment all available.
“Dubai Airports is on a mission to engage more directly with our customers, and transform the airport experience for millions of travellers each month,” said Eugene Barry, executive vice president of Dubai Airports’ commercial and communications group. “We intend to lead the practical application of available digital tools to exceed customer expectations, across multiple points of their journey at our airports, and including demands for more variety within the airport experience.
“Thanks to our partnership with ICFLIX, travellers at DXB can now enjoy a wide range of streamed entertainment before and between flights, and this is a service which is completely free of charge to users.”
90 million people per year are now be able stream ICFLIX at DXB, and the service will be available on an initial trial period lasting two months, before both the airport and ICFLIX assess the option of future services.
