Kuwait-based low cost carrier Jazeera Airways has launched Jazeera Screens, a new wireless inflight entertainment service on all flights.

The initiative allows passengers to watch movies and TV shows as well as play games, read about local destinations and track their route, all for free.

Jazeera Screens, which is available on iOS and Android devices, enables passengers to connect to the on-board wireless network to start enjoying the content during their flight using their smartphone or tablet.

Passengers are also invited to download the Jazeera Screens app before boarding to stream at their convenience during their flight.

Jazeera Airways CEO, Rohit Ramachandran, said: “Jazeera Airways continues to roll out new services to enhance our customers’ experience every time they fly with us. The new system has been deployed with leading service providers in the field to cater to our wide customer base and provide them with a rich content in English, Arabic and Indian languages.”

To celebrate the launch, passengers on flight J9 253 to Amman on November 21 will enjoy an exclusive movie night with free popcorn for all passengers.

Developed in partnership with Bluebox Aviation Systems, Aeroplay Entertainment and Global Onboard Partners, Jazeera Screens will evolve to include on-board shopping in the coming year, the airline said.

Kevin Clark, Bluebox CEO, said: “We are delighted to have Jazeera Airways as our first commercial airline customer for Bluebox Wow in the Middle East region. The selection of Bluebox is recognition of the flexibility and ongoing development of Bluebox Wow and the credibility of our technical team in supporting customer growth.”

Jazeera Airways flies to 26 destinations across the Middle East, India and Europe and operates a fleet of Airbus A320s and an Airbus A320neo.
