Emirates has partnered with LinkedIn to provide select LinkedIn Learning courses on ice, its inflight entertainment (IFE) system. Emirates is the first international airline to make these courses available on board.

The new offering on ice is available from November and is part of Emirates’ continued commitment to providing new and diverse IFE content. The free expert-led LinkedIn Learning courses range from 20 minutes to over two hours long and cover topics such as leadership, general management, marketing, and creative lifestyle.

The courses feature high-quality, easily digestible information to cater to varying interests and profiles of customers on board. Among the featured content are courses such as Managing Stress and Learning from Failure by Todd Dewett, a TEDx speaker, writer and coach in the leadership and life skills space. Other courses available include lectures on productivity at the workplace by David Allen, the creator of GTD, the Getting Things Done methodology and Gretchen Rubin, author of Better Than Before, The Happiness Project, and Happier at Home. The LinkedIn Learning courses will be regularly updated to include new topics.

The courses complement the current IFE offering of up to 2,600 on-demand entertainment channels including the latest blockbuster movies, award-winning television series, dedicated children’s entertainment, a music library and seatback games.

Currently, 85% of Emirates’ fleet are also equipped with free Wi-Fi on board, including all A380 aircraft. In addition, 108 aircraft are equipped with live TV, which has up to nine channels of live news and sport.
