ESL takes to the skies as part of Emirates’ Inflight Entertainment

We are excited to reveal our very first major inflight entertainment deal with Emirates Airline. Ever since March this year up until June 2018, every Emirates flight in their global network of over 150 destinations across six continents will be outfitted with on-demand esports content from ESL on the Inflight Entertainment Systems, available for all passengers on board.

This inaugural partnership allows anyone traveling with Emirates to enjoy highlights from some of the biggest esports events in recent history. Relive Na’Vi’s immaculate run through the ESL One New York 2016 bracket. Catch up on the biggest plays, upsets and storylines from Intel Extreme Masters World Championship Katowice 2017 - like Astralis lifting their first ever Intel Extreme Masters trophy or Flash Wolves’ success story in the League of Legends bracket.

The deal will also encompass future stadium events like ESL One Cologne within the entertainment selection, so you can look forward to an extended library of esports highlights, across multiple titles and competitions.

Torsten Haux, VP of Global Media Rights at ESL, is thrilled by the additional mainstream visibility for esports.
“At ESL, we are always looking to increase the visibility of esports and are happy to work with Emirates, the world’s largest international airline, on our first inflight entertainment deal. As a truly global company with events all around the world, I’m sure that players and fans will enjoy ESL’s esports highlights as they travel on Emirates airline.”
