Delta has refreshed its in-flight entertainment content on Delta Studio for first time since April 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic forced the airline to pause new content loads.
“From the moment a customer steps on board, we want them to have an amazing experience and great entertainment options are a key part of that,” said Ekrem Dimbiloglu, Director of Brand Experience – In-Flight Entertainment & Wi-Fi. “Over the last several months, our team has been chasing down the very best movies and shows for customers to enjoy on their next flight, and we can’t wait for them to sit back, settle in and enjoy what we have curated.”
The all-new suite of curated in-flight entertainment content on Delta Studio, features hit movies and TV shows from top studios including Disney Media and Entertainment Distribution, Warner Bros., Universal, Paramount, Hulu and more.
Among the more than 300 new items are 89 new films, including 30 new releases from the past year, such as Tenet, Mulan, The Invisible Man, and The Call of the Wild.
Seatbacks will also feature new premium series, including hits like HBO’s The Undoing and The Third Day and Hulu Original Little Fires Everywhere. Passengers can also watch episodes of Hulu shows including new episodes and two new films available like The Handmaid’s Tale, Wu-Tang: An American Saga, Taste the Nation with Padma Lakshmi, and Palm Springs. Passengers can also enjoy more than 40 titles across a variety of original series and specials featured in an HBO channel onboard.
“We want to delight customers with the content they’re seeking, but also share new experiences they might not have otherwise found,” said Dimbiloglu.
Delta will spotlight two new collections to celebrate Black History Month. Through these films, the airline is highlighting its connection with its hometown and birth place of civil rights: Atlanta.
“We will forever be grateful to the leaders who have helped us build deep and lasting connections with Atlanta,” said Tad Hutcheson – Managing Director of Community Engagement. “The films we are highlighting over the next month are a tribute to those friendships and remind us of the power of community.”
Among those featured is MAYNARD, a film which documents how Maynard Holbrook Jackson, Jr. built Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, establishing the city as a global transit hub and creating jobs and economic opportunities for minority-owned businesses in the City.
Another is Building Atlanta: The Story of Herman J Russell – a documentary about the life and legacy of business leader and the founder of one of the country’s largest Black-owned construction companies, H.J. Russell & Co. H.J. Russell & Co. was part of a joint venture, Holder-Russell, that was instrumental in building Delta’s global headquarters in Atlanta in the late 1970s and has been responsible for managing renovations Delta’s headquarters for over 30 years.
