“Dubai Airports is on a mission to engage more directly with our customers, and transform the airport experience for millions of travelers each month,” stated Eugene Barry, the Executive Vice President of Dubai Airports’ Commercial and Communications Group.

“We intend to lead the practical application of available digital tools to exceed customer expectations, across multiple points of their journey at our airports, and including demands for more variety within the airport experience,” he explained.

Likewise, the Founder and CEO of ICFLIX, Carlos Tibi, shared: “Our mission is to deliver the best online entertainment value, selection, and experience to a worldwide subscriber base by providing Jazwood (Arabic), Bollywood and Hollywood content in one place.”
