Air India, India’s leading global airline, today unveiled a colossal library of content for its new, best-in-class inflight entertainment (IFE) system that will offer an immersive entertainment experience to travellers on its long-haul flights.

The full suite of the new IFE content features over 2,200 hours of entertainment content across formats and genres, including 1000 hours of movies, 600 hours of TV, and 600 hours of audio, for today’s discerning travellers. The new IFE experience will be available on Air India’s A350, newly inducted B777-200LR, and on incoming new widebody aircraft.

Air India’s legacy widebody fleet, which is scheduled to undergo complete refurbishment of all interiors starting second half of 2024 in a US$400 million retrofit programme, will subsequently feature the new IFE system and expanded content offering.

Campbell Wilson, Chief Executive Officer & Managing Director, Air India, said: “As Air India takes flight into a new era with the arrival of our A350 aircraft, so does our guests’ entertainment experience. This complete overhaul in our inflight entertainment offering mirrors the dynamic transformation underway at Air India. We’re redefining what it means to fly with us, and this world-class IFE system and carefully curated content are a cornerstone of that commitment.”

From Bollywood blockbusters to Hollywood premieres, global music icons to captivating documentaries and the new Air India Radio, the world’s best content will now be at the fingertips of Air India guests.
