British Airways is making arrangements for entertainment to its customers. In this effort, the airline is introducing option to watch TV and movies from the moment customers board their flights to the time they reach their destination on even more long-haul services.
Customers boarding flights to Tel Aviv, Cairo, Beirut, Amman, Almaty and Baku are the latest to get advantage of the airline’s extended in-flight entertainment services.
Previous year, British Airways was the first airline in UK to start showing the latest movies and TV shows, on long-haul fights to customers from the moment they reached their seat to the moment they landed at their destination.
On a five-hour flight to Cairo or Tel Aviv customers can avail up to an hour extra in-flight entertainment.
The increase to in-flight entertainment is part of a £5 billion investment programme by British Airways that comprise new aircraft, refurbished cabins and better lounges.
Like other UK carriers, British Airways previously started its in-flight entertainment system once the aircraft has taken off and following various announcements and turns it off 15-20 minutes before the flights reach their destination.
