About flydubai’s IFE system:

flydubai was the first airline to have the ability to stream high-definition movies simultaneously to every passenger seat in the aircraft, through the revolutionary ‘Fiber-To-The-Screen®’ (‘FTTS®’) In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) system from Lumexis.

The touch-screen system operates through fibre optics, which are lighter than traditional copper models, reducing fuel consumption. It also offers more Hollywood movies than any other airline and also offers a selection of Bollywood, Russian and Arabic films in addition to a range of TV programmes, audio albums and games. In all, flydubai offers more than 1,000 hours of non-stop entertainment. Going the extra mile the carrier also has a selection of daily newspapers, flydubai news, route map and general information on the IFE.
