Deezer launched in the Middle East and North Africa in October 2018 and can be found across 22 countries in the region.

Patrick Brannelly, division VP customer experience, Emirates, added: “We welcome playlists by Deezer on ice. Movies and TV are super popular onboard, but a core of our customers love music.
