Skift Take

Even though still a small catalog of HD movies -- it has about 200 overall, beyond 25 HD -- the delivery of HD movies simultaneously to every seat back is still a feat.

Flydubai, one of the world’s fastest growing low cost airlines, says it is the first airline globally to show HD movies from all six major Hollywood studios in-flight.

It introduced HD films in Dec 2010 from Paramount and Walt Disney Studios, and now with the HD debut of The Bourne Legacy from NBCUniversal has brought the full spectrum on board, complementing other titles from Warner Bros, 20th Century Fox and Sony Pictures. In all, its HD film library now stands at 25 films.

The low-cost carrier is the launch customer for the ‘Fiber-To-The-Screen’ system by Lumexis, enabling HD movies to be shown simultaneously in every seat back.
