Emirates World Channel to feature live interview from space

Emirates’ ice inflight entertainment system will feature a live interview with UAE astronaut Dr Sultan AlNeyadi. The interview will be available on the Emirates World Channel from 1 September 2023, which is the same day the astronaut will begin his journey back to Earth.

By this date, AlNeyadi will have completed a six-month science mission aboard the International Space Station (ISS) and his journey is expected to take up to 16 hours, which Emirates says is just one hour shorter than the carrier’s longest flight duration, 17 hours, from Auckland to Dubai.

The interview for Emirates ice was conducted by Patrick Brannelly, Emirates SVP of IFE & Connectivity and focuses on topics such as Dr AlNeyadi’s in-flight meals, how he stays connected to family and the entertainment available on board the spacecraft.
