Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia) has increased its amount of entertainment programmes available on-board its aircraft, offering 1800 hours of movies, television shows, games and music options.

With the increased variety of content, guests flying with Saudia can view movies in Arabic, English, French, Italian, Spanish and German. A wide selection of international movies are also available in Malayalam, Tamil, Hindi, Korean, Mandarin and Tagalog.

Following a recently-signed agreement with Warner Brothers and FOX, an extensive selection of Hollywood programs are now available onboard. The expanded library in the airline’s Inflight Entertainment System (IFE) includes a large selection of religious programmes, Arabic Cinema, action, comedy, drama, thriller, sci-fi, fantasy, animation, educational, lifestyle, business, family programs, sports, Bollywood titles and games. 

In particular, a significant selection of Islamic content is available on-board Saudia (208 programmes) which are sourced from Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Dawah, and Guidance. 

Additionally, a re-designed entertainment platform has been simultaneously created to complement the addition of the new content, making it seamless for guests to scroll through the categories. 

Director General of Saudi Arabian Airlines, Saleh bin Nasser Al-Jasser said: “Saudia is committed to providing all of our guests with the very latest available entertainment selections when they travel for business or leisure. We understand the importance of staying connected onboard and the airline continues to make investments to ensure that the latest industry-leading technology is available in our fleet.”
