You can now watch free movies on your phone or laptop before your flight

Movie fans rejoice! You can now enjoy free films and TV shows before your flight, thanks to a partnership between Dubai Airports and regional content provider ICFLIX.

The initiative combines DXB’s world-beating free Wi-Fi experience, ‘WOW-Fi’, with ICFLIX’s award-winning video-on-demand service, allowing passengers to stream the latest Hollywood, Bollywood and Jazwood (Arabic) content to their smartphones and laptops.

Content on ICFLIX is available in three languages: Arabic, English and French.

“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.

“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.”

This is the latest innovation to appear in DXB, following the recent launch of  Wow-Fi, artDXB, the first Jones the Grocer in an airport and a brand-new sleep lounge ‘sleep ‘n fly’, with many more major projects in the pipeline.

So grab your popcorn, stream your favourite show and stay tuned!
