This new synchronization feature is already offered on some 100 Boeing 777s. Sir Tim Clark, Chairman of Emirates Airline, explains that this is in line with their ‘Fly Better’ promise. As such, he says the teams are dedicated to providing exceptional travel experiences. Moreover, every detail is taken into account as we go along in order to continually bring innovative products and services to our customers. For example, this brand new feature in the Emirates app improves the customer experience even before boarding the plane.

In addition to the 100 Boeing 777s, ice will be available on the entire fleet, including the A380s, in the coming months. With a global customer base, Emirates offers entertainment in 44 languages.
