Emirates To Live Stream Football Finals On Flights

Passengers travelling with Emirates during the finals of Europa League on May 29 or Champions League on June 1 will be able to watch both matches while 37,000ft in the air.

The matches will be aired on the flight sports channel, Sport 24, a statement said.

With two all-English finals, the airline said it has made “special arrangements” to ensure all the 23 Emirates flights operating to and from England during match times are equipped with Live TV. This includes flights to and from London Heathrow, London Gatwick, London Stansted, Manchester, Newcastle and Birmingham.

Emirates will also be screening the matches live on the 55-inch screen at the onboard lounge on select A380s, which is open to first and business class passengers.

The airline said it expected an estimated 70,000 travellers to watch the finals mid-flight.

 

For passengers who aren’t on these scheduled flights, and their planes aren’t equipped with Live TV, they can still keep up to date with the scores using the free WiFi on board.
