The audio and video on demand (AVOD) includes features unique to Etihad such as building a ‘video favourites’ list during the flight.

In addition to it, more than 200 music albums are on offer and 70 international feature films are shown.

“Etihad understands just how important an advanced IFE is to our guests, and this is why we have gone to such lengths to provide the very best in entertainment — music, movies or TV programmes,” said Peter Van Gompel, Assistant Vice President for Product and Service Delivery, Etihad Airways.

In addition to the changes in the IFE system, Etihad’s new fleet of aircraft are fitted with the Thales TopSeries i4000 system which offers more than two weeks of continuous entertainment, covering a wealth of languages and cultures, placing the airline among the world’s best IFE providers.
