Qatar Airways was recognized for content innovation at the fourth annual in-flight workshop and awards at Aircraft Interiors Middle East, held in partnership with F&E Aerospace. The award recognizes the outstanding array of the airline’s on-board entertainment platform, Oryx One.
Qatar Airways was commended for offering a wide selection of content to enhance its global passengers’ journeys, including regional content selection tailored to the Middle East market. The award, which the airline received for the second consecutive year, was presented at a ceremony during the exhibition held recently at the Dubai World Trade Center as part of the Inflight IFEC Pavilion Workshop.
Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al-Baker, said: “We developed Oryx One to offer our passengers the highest standard in on-board entertainment, and we continually strive to innovate and expand our state-of-the-art entertainment library, unrivalled for its wide range of content in multiple languages. This award recognizes the extensive selection we offer to our customers, from the latest premieres, to classic movies, popular TV and special-interest programs, providing them with a superior entertainment experience to enhance their journey around the world with Qatar Airways.”
Qatar Airways senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications, Salam Al-Shawa, said: “This award is a testament to our continued commitment to enhancing our passengers’ in-flight experience by providing them with the widest selection of high quality, on-board entertainment options. We are delighted to be honored with this award for the second consecutive year.”
Qatar Airways continues to explore ways to deliver quality content on a dynamic platform through a choice of familiar, award-winning and hugely popular entertainment options that replicate the experience many passengers enjoy at home. Frequent flyers are spoilt for choice, with more than 90 new feature films and 220 TV shows being updated each month.
TV box sets are booked exclusively before any other airline. Qatar Airways was the only airline to feature the complete first season of the highly rated Turkish drama “Sultana Kosem.” Passengers can also select from a wide range of Bollywood movies and from more than 200 hours of Arabic content originating from Qatar, the Gulf and the Middle East.
Oryx One also offers an exciting array of kids’ entertainment, including the entire Pixar catalogue of movies. Kids can also enjoy a fantastic range of content from the Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon and Disney branded sections.
