Let us entertain you
By the end of 2015 all Boeing 777-200 and in 2016 our Boeing 777-300 aircraft will have a fully renovated cabin interior. Also, the newly introduced Boeing 787-9 offers you the latest entertainment features. The new seats offer passengers a whole new inflight entertainment system with navigation available in twelve languages. The inflight entertainment system features more content, a larger 9-inch, HD-quality touchscreen (in the Boeing 787-9 11-inch), interactive 3D Moving map and a ‘seat chat’ app that allows you to communicate with other passengers who are seated elsewhere in the cabin. In World Business Class the personal 16-inch screen, operated with a video touchscreen handset, completes the experience of luxury.
Many choices and a personal screen
Enjoy more than 1000 hours of interactive entertainment on all intercontinental KLM flights and in various languages - from the moment you take your seat until you leave the aircraft again:
- More than 80 and in the newest entertainment system more than 200 films, including recent releases, classics and world cinema. Many of these you can view in Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese or Spanish
- Television programmes including comedy, drama, People & Planet, travel, concerts, sports and lifestyle
- Hundreds of CDs and exclusive KLM music specials
- Language courses
- Dedicated Kids channels
- Audio books
All of this can be enjoyed on your own personal interactive screen on almost all intercontinental KLM flights (except on KLM flights to Tel Aviv on a Boeing 737 aircraft).
We update our in-flight entertainment selections around the first of every month.
To and from Asia
On all KLM flights to or from China, Korea or Japan, free local newspapers are available. Sit back and relax with one of our films subtitled or dubbed in the local language, or enjoy radio programmes in Chinese, Korean or Japanese.
