(VEN) - Emirates continues its record-breaking streak for its ice entertainment system which has been awarded the ‘World's Best Airline Inflight Entertainment’ at the 2015 SKYTRAX World Airline Awards for the 11th consecutive year.

Emirates additionally won an award for ‘Best First Class Comfort Amenities’.
Always pioneering, Emirates’ in-flight entertainment system continuously sets industry standards from being the first airline to launch personal TV screens in all seats in 1992, to Live TV in 2013 and free WiFi on its compatible aircraft in 2014.
