Tuesday, 1 June 2010 12:23pm

Emirates has won the World’s Best Airline Inflight Entertainment award for the sixth year running at the 2010 Skytrax World Airline Awards.  

In 2009-2010 Emirates selected movies from over 15 countries that were available in over 20 languages, as well as many with the option to choose closed captions for the Deaf and hearing impaired.

The airline's groundbreaking audio and video-on-demand system, ice (information, communications and entertainment), is available on over 80 per cent of the Emirates fleet and offers a staggering choice of up to 1,200 channels of entertainment including 230 movies from around the world.

“Emirates continues to excel in this category, and yet again are a repeat winner of the Best Airline Inflight Entertainment Award,” said Edward Plaisted, Skytrax chairman. “This aspect of the travel experience gains in importance each year as customers become more demanding, and Emirates are clearly matching these expectations to have been voted the world's best by passengers.”
