Airline passengers on both domestic and international flights are familiar with DVD movies shown to combat boredom during their travel. Some domestic flights might not have this option because of shorter flights, but international flights are making a great effort to include new DVD movies on the agenda to make a passenger's long journey as comfortable as possible.
Stores who rent DVDs to airports try to do it at a significantly lower price than for individual customers, because airports order in lots. The number of flights leaving from big international airports can be as many as 10 or more per day, and all of these flights show movies during the course of travel.
Airport authorities typically keep a stack of DVDs. Some are purchased while others are rented on a long-term basis through online DVD rental stores.
Usually stores provide unlimited DVDs rentals to airports for a nominal monthly fee. The newest movies are available, and regular airport customers can book in advance.
Online rental stores make it a point to deliver DVDs to any airport across the country as a bonus. Airports can rent movies and return them once the flight returns.
Rental agencies allow airports to rent out more than one movie at a time with a single membership. This provides more flexibility to airport authorities who are selecting movies during any given time period. Airport memberships can be by the month, year or lifetime. The best option for an airport would seem to be lifetime membership, since airports renting movies for flights will probably continue doing so for a long time.
