Posted 4 October 2016 · Add Comment

Passengers travelling with Qatar Airways in October can look forward to a collection of family-favourite movies from film power-house Disney/Pixar, to enjoy during their journey.

Available from October, Qatar Airways will premiere the critically acclaimed movie Finding Dory - yet to be released on DVD - on Oryx One, along with other award-winning Disney/Pixar films including the Toy Story collection of movies, A Bug’s Life, Monsters Inc. and Monsters University, Cars, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, WALL-E, Up, Brave, Inside Out, The Good Dinosaur and Finding Nemo.

Providing easy and enjoyable family travel is important to Qatar Airways, and the airline’s new children’s activity kits, featuring Hasbro’s Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head were recently recognised in the TravelPlus Awards for their interactivity. A total of four different kits, each featuring a different type of game, are available to families flying to and from Doha on both long-haul and short-haul flights. Young travellers can explore and play with glow-in-the-dark toys and stickers, interactive bags, and a gadget stand. Kits for infants include a peek-a-boo Mr. Potato Head plush toy and soft books, with similarly themed children’s meal packs distributed to young travellers with priority.

Qatar Airways senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications, Salam Al Shawa, said: “We’re committed to continually innovating the passenger experience on board Qatar Airways flights by providing the latest in-flight entertainment and connectivity. Oryx One is unrivalled in its wide selection of movies, TV, games and music, provided in more than 30 languages to offer our passengers the very best experience wherever they fly with Qatar Airways. We will continue to update our collection every month to maintain a rich and extensive selection and to offer fresh and current content.”
