Inflight Entertainment: Delta Brings Nigerian Movies Onboard

First it was American Hollywood, then Indian Bollywood and now Delta is bringing Nollywood to the skies with Nigerian-made movies on board its flights.

Nigerian movies are being rolled out across Delta’s inflight entertainment system Delta Studio and will be complete in April with the first films to be shown being Bambitious and A Place Called Happy.

More movies will be added later in the year and when completed, will be available on 339 aircraft flying both internationally and on U.S. domestic routes.

Nigeria’s film industry dates back to the early 19th century but it wasn’t until 1992 that Nollywood was born when Kenneth Nnebue shot a straight-to-video movie in one month. Nollywood has since gone on to become the world’s second largest film industry behind Bollywood.

Delta studio offers customers more than 1,000 hours of entertainment, including up to 300 movies, 750 TV shows, 100 foreign film titles, 2,400 songs, 18 channels of live satellite TV on select aircraft and a selection of games, podcasts and audiobooks.

Delta flies to four destinations in Africa including Accra, Dakar, Johannesburg and Lagos, Nigeria.
