Emirates headphones are provided to passengers in all cabin classes, including premium Bowers & Wilkins E1 headphones in First Class, created by British sound experts exclusively for Emirates. These headphones use noise-cancelling technology to block out ambient cabin sounds for a clean listening experience. Young passengers also receive specially designed kids’ headphones.

Emirates Skywards members can enjoy free Wi-Fi onboard for use of PEDs. The airline updates its inflight content every month, adding hundreds of movies, TV shows, podcasts, and music channels each month to its entertainment library.

Passengers can also curate their own ice experience before the flight by browsing and pre-selecting movies or TV shows on the Emirates app. This can synchronized to ice during boarding.

“Our editors were unanimous in their praise for Emirates’ ice system as a step above. That early investment in inflight entertainment has paid off for Emirates and just when you think it can’t do it better – it lifts the bar once again,” said Editor-in-Chief Geoffrey Thomas about the award.

The Airline Excellence Awards are evaluated by an editorial team with many years of experience, based on criteria including product and safety rating, passengers’ reviews on and Trip Advisor and profitability.
