Cathay Pacific offers new in-flight Disney entertainment
29 Aug 2005
Cathay Pacific today announced that Mickey Mouse and Friends will keep kids entertained on flights with the introduction of a new Disney Channel on its StudioCX
inflight entertainment system and special fun packs with games, stickers and puzzles.
The new Disney Channel will air on flights from September and feature well-loved characters such as Mickey and Friends, Kim Possible, Lilo & Stitch, Aladdin, Hercules and Timone and Pumbaa.
Eight shows will be offered on short-haul flights every month. Passengers flying long haul can in addition enjoy all-time favourite feature-length movies. September’s line-up includes Atlantis:The Lost Empire, Toy Story 2, The Jungle Book 2 and The Great Mouse Detective.
The new Disney fun packs will be phased in from September and be available free on all Cathay Pacific flights to children aged between three and 12. They come in four different designs – two for children aged between three and six years and two for older kids aged between seven and 12.
Mickey, Minnie, Donald Duck, Daisy, Pluto and Goofy appear on fun stationery, colouring books, stickers, puzzles, activity books and card games. Cathay Pacific will switch packs between inbound and outbound services to give children greater variety.
Cathay Pacific Manager Product Sarah Blomfield said: “Cathay Pacific is just as committed to provide the best product and service to our young passengers. We hope our new Disney Channel and fun packs make them and their families feel extra welcome on board.”
