Passengers can now experience even more of the airline’s enriched onboard entertainment library on every flight

The Cathay Pacific Group is giving customers more of what they love, with four times the entertainment available to discover and enjoy every time they fly.  This significantly enriched inflight entertainment offering epitomises Cathay Pacific’s efforts to enhance the customer experience as it continues to fulfil its ‘Move Beyond’ brand promises.

Passengers can look forward to more newly released blockbuster movies, more live sports coverage and more complete boxsets than ever before. Newly available live coverage of the latest sports events will ensure passengers never miss any of the breath-taking moments from their favourite games when they fly with the airline. 

With all this new video content to enjoy, customers could fly non-stop around the world 45 times and never have to watch the same thing twice, making every flight a truly unique experience.

“We recognise that our role as an airline extends beyond solely flying our passengers to their destination. It’s about creating an experience, one that will allow them to savour every memorable moment of the journey,” said Regional General Manager (South Asia, Middle East and South Africa) Mark Sutch. “By offering an extensive range of inflight entertainment, our passengers now have more choices than ever before to catch up on their favourite binge-worthy series, get lost in a blockbuster cinematic universe or even enjoy some exhilarating live Rugby World Cup action on our Cathay Pacific flights. ”

All-star content

Cathay Pacific has an extensive range of content, offering the very best in worldwide exclusive titles, including new release HD movies and exciting series. Passengers can now also explore a range of genres that will have them glued to their screens. 

Unforgettable live moments

More good news for sports fans as Cathay Pacific has partnered with channel Sport 24 to offer passengers flying on the airline’s state-of-the-art Airbus A350 aircraft live coverage of the best sporting events from around the world. Passengers can catch the Rugby World Cup Finals live this month. If that isn’t exhilarating enough, passengers can catch all the unforgettable highs and lows from the UEFA Champions League as they happen even while in the air.

A cinema in the sky

Cathay Pacific passengers can be among the first to see the latest blockbuster films from around the world, with a huge number of new movies added every month that are currently – or even soon-to-be – on show in movie theatres. Customers can also delight in the airline’s new partnership with streaming service and independent entertainment specialist MUBI. Cathay Pacific and MUBI have sourced remastered classics and films that never made it to local cinema for passengers to discover. And, with a huge number of new thoughtfully curated films being added every month, there is always more to explore on the next flight.

From start to finish

Cathay Pacific’s comprehensive collection of movie and TV boxsets is getting even better, with a whole lot more complete boxsets available to dive into. Cathay Pacific is one of the first airlines to offer multi-season boxsets, meaning passengers can binge-watch award-winning drama series, starting with the pilot episode through to the latest season finale. With a range of branded channels from the likes of HBO, Cathay Pacific customers can be sure there’s always a new series for them to enjoy right from the very beginning. 

Cathay Pacific is continuously enhancing the passenger experience, giving customers more ways to make the most of their journey. Notably, the majority of the airline’s fleet will be Wi-Fi-enabled by 2020 in addition to having more content than ever before.
