As part of its “commitment to offer an unparalleled entertainment experience” Cathay Pacific has announced it is the first airline in Asia-Pacific to feature Disney+ Original titles as part of its IFE.
Beginning on 1 December 2023, customers onboard Cathay Pacific flights can explore more than 100 hours of films, series and documentaries from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic. This includes hours of exclusive Disney+ entertainment content never before available on Cathay Pacific.
“We are delighted to be the first in Asia-Pacific to bring the original titles and stories from Disney+ to our customers onboard,” said Vivian Lo, General Manager Customer Experience and Design, Cathay Pacific. “From beloved classics to blockbuster originals, captivating series, documentaries and family content, there is now an even wider selection of thoughtfully curated entertainment for customers on board Cathay Pacific. We are extremely proud of the industry-leading inflight entertainment we provide and we understand the importance many of our customers place on entertainment as a differentiator when choosing who they fly with. By delivering premium brands and titles from Disney+, we are continuing our commitment to offer an unparalleled entertainment experience.”
Cathay Pacific has also invested in inflight entertainment technology onboard its aircraft. With the Airbus A321neo – the newest aircraft to join its fleet – Cathay Pacific was the first airline in the world to provide 4K ultra-high-definition screens, a 4K video-on-demand experience as well as Bluetooth audio streaming across all cabins, enabling customers to watch 4K Hollywood and Asian blockbusters using their own Bluetooth-enabled headphones.
