Aeroflot announced this month an expanded multimedia inflight entertainment program with an increased variety of choices and frequency of content catalog update.

Now, at least 60 Russian and international film premieres and 40 new movie releases with an IMDb rating of six and up will be added to the IFE monthly. Approximately half of most recent film releases will be supplied by the Hollywood studios and biggest rights holders.

“This serves as a guarantee of high quality, premium level and relevance of content. Aeroflot passengers will be among the first to see the best and most anticipated new films,” said a release from Aeroflot

The IFE offering will soon feature new trending genres: "newms" (short educational animated videos), podcasts, video interviews with celebrities. The selection of movies and array of festival films available to passengers will expand. The catalog section of Russian and Soviet films will be enhanced. Passengers with disabilities will be offered a wider choice of content with captions and audio descriptions.

Aeroflot's offering will have at least 220 movies and 200 episodes of TV series and shows. A new catalog rubricator enhanced with an intuitive search function currently developed will improve usability for travelers.

Aeroflot’s IFE system contains approximately 5,000 offerings of video, audio, educational, infotainment and game content. Almost all Western-built aircraft in the airline’s fleet are equipped with an FE system. IFE program is available in all classes of service on A350, A330, 777, 737, A320/A321NEO and most of A320/A321 aircraft.
