Passengers flying through Dubai International Airport will be able to stream the latest Hollywood blockbusters to their mobile devices for free while they wait for their flight. For the next two months, the airport will trial the complimentary service with regional content provider ICFLIX.
The move follows Frankfurt Airport in Germany which also tested a free streaming service on a trial basis last year. Dubai airport claims to boast the world’s fastest, free airport WiFi connection, at a speed of 100mbps. Earlier this year, the airport also claimed the title of the world’s busiest airport for international passengers, with a record 83.7 million travelers passing through the hub in 2016.
