Qatar Airways passengers can now enjoy exclusive access to videos from global fashion brands GQ and Vogue, as the airline has become the first in the world to feature the premium celebrity, style and lifestyle content of these two iconic brands through its on-board entertainment platform, Oryx One.
The TV section of the multiple award-winning airline’s Oryx One in-flight entertainment system is the first airline to now feature episodes from a selection of short-form content from GQ and Vogue, which is also available on the digital platforms of the two popular Condé Nast brands.
Vogue videos feature the glamour of the red carpet at the annual ‘Met Gala’, celebrity style and make-up tips in ‘Beauty Icons’, star-studded creative films in ‘Vogue Original Shorts’ and, filmed in a single shot, some of the world’s favourite personalities being challenged to a rapid-fire interview in ‘73 Questions’.
The GQ channel offers style tips with ‘How to Do it Better’, exclusive interviews with Hollywood’s A-list in ‘GQ Men of the Year’, and the opportunity to watch celebrities go undercover on social media to answer real-life questions about themselves in the comedy series ‘Actually Me’.
Qatar Airways Senior Vice President Marketing and Corporate Communications, Ms. Salam Al Shawa, said: “The addition of these iconic brands to the Qatar Airways on-board experience is not only an industry first, it is further evidence of our commitment to continually innovating the passenger experience.
“Oryx One is unrivalled in its wide selection of movies, TV, games and music, provided in more than 30 languages, and we will continue to update our collection every month to maintain a rich and extensive selection offering fresh and current content. We look forward to enriching passengers’ experience on board with this exciting new selection.”
Oryx One provides its passengers with up to 4,000 channels of entertainment options, including 500 blockbuster movies, 1,300 episodes of TV programmes, 1,000 audio channels and 50 games, with new content refreshed each month. Oryx One offers a huge variety of the latest audio and video content as well as star-studded world cinema in more than 30 languages, including award-winning, Hollywood premieres, Arabic hits, Bollywood blockbusters, modern favourites, classics and much more. A dedicated family channel offers younger passengers a wide choice of the latest movies and age-appropriate TV content.
Qatar Airways was named ‘World’s Best Business Class’ by the 2018 World Airline Awards, managed by international air transport rating organisation Skytrax. It was also named ‘Best Business Class Seat,’ ‘Best Airline in the Middle East’, and ‘World’s Best First Class Airline Lounge’.
The airline is one of the world’s fastest-growing airlines, with a modern fleet of more than 200 aircraft flying to business and leisure destinations across six continents. The award-winning airline recently revealed a host of upcoming new global destinations, including Gothenburg, Sweden; Mombasa, Kenya, and Da Nang, Vietnam.
