Euronews in the air

Air France has introduced a new in-flight news bulletin, exclusively produced for them by Euronews. 

Starting on 29 January 2011 this bulletin offers a 40-minute round-up of the week’s main news.  Accessible in French and English versions as part of the in-flight entertainment programme, it covers worldwide, economic, cultural and sports news, from an international angle.  This innovative service will replace the different news programmes available to date.

“With our customers’ changing expectations, who read the daily news on the internet or via their smartphones, this new Euronews programme provides viewers with in-depth, contextual reporting on the major stories, complementing the daily news bulletin,” stated Christian Herzog, SVP Marketing, Air France-KLM. 

Air France offers on board its long haul flights a 'VOD' (video-on-demand) in-flight entertainment system, comprising over 500 hours of programmes, including 85 feature films – some of them translated into nine languages, 30 hours of TV programmes and a juke-box selection of 200 CDs, 23 radio channels, video clips and music programmes.  17 interactive games are also offered plus the Berlitz® language learning programme. http://corporate.airfrance.com
