Passengers get access to digital newspapers and magazines
While most airlines continue to offer newspapers and magazines in lounges and on the planes, some are also are allowing the large number of passengers with smartphones, notebooks, tablets and e-readers to download press and inflight entertainment.
They are adding power ports to the aircraft seats, giving passengers the option of onboard Wi-Fi and wireless access to a wide variety of device-readable news media and magazines.
“Being able to grab a digital copy of your favourite newspaper, especially ones from overseas, is a great pre-flight and even post-flight perk,” comments David Flynn, editor of Australian Business Traveller.
As Airline Trends describes, airlines such as Air France, airberlin, Virgin Australia and ANA have begun to give passengers access to digital newspapers and magazines before their flight leaves, saving airlines costs and delighting passengers wih a wide range of reading material.
