Five Harare residents with an incisive knowledge of the latest movies currently showing on Emirates' ice inflight entertainment system will have a new digital audio experience after winning Bluetooth speakers.

The five were lucky winners in the Emirates "Guess the Movie" radio competition held on February 20-24 in partnership with Harare's ZiFM, in which callers had to guess the latest movie playing on Emirates' award-winning ice system from the given clues.

Patrick Chirangoma, Tonderai Saunyama, Tatenda  Gorima, Tessa Tigere and Shingirai Nankhuwo beat all competition and were rewarded with Emirates Njoy Bluetooth Speaker.

During the competition, participants were required to send an SMS with their name to ZiFM. The radio station would then call them back and they were required to answer the phone saying "Hello Tomorrow", the slogan of the world's largest international airline, which flies daily from Harare to Dubai.

Emirates Commercial Manager for Zimbabwe Fahad Bastaki was on hand to present the winners with their prizes at the Emirates office in Wakefield Road, Harare.

"I congratulate all the winners of the Emirates Guess the Movie competition. It shows that they have vast knowledge of the services our airline offers, which enable our passengers get the most out of their journeys," he said.

On the Harare and Lusaka to Dubai flight, Emirates operates a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft equipped with the award winning inflight entertainment system called ice (information, communication and entertainment), which offers unrivalled experience in the air. It has received the Skytrax "Best Entertainment System in the World" award 12 times in a row.

In 1992, Emirates was the first airline to introduce individual television screens in Economy Class, and has since continued its journey of innovation.

Today, passengers on Emirates' Economy Class can enjoy personal seat-back monitors and choose from 2,500 channels of on-demand audio and visual entertainment, including the latest movies, TV shows, music, games and audio books.

Children travelling in Economy Class can enjoy up to 90 channels of kids entertainment, including the very best movies and television from Disney, Cartoon Network, CBeebies and Nickelodeon, and much more.

Passengers on Emirates can also look forward to world class service and hospitality from the airline's multi-national cabin crew, including Zambian and Zimbabwean nationals, while enjoying regionally inspired gourmet dishes with locally-sourced ingredients.
