Read All About It… In-flight! Passengers Experience First Ever Daily In-flight Digital Newspapers with DTI Solutions and NewspaperDirect

NewspaperDirect is very excited to announce our partnership with flydubai and DTI Solutions to bring daily updated local and international newspapers to travelers on all flights!

Starting January 2013, flydubai became the world’s first airline to offer daily updated local and international digital newspapers.

DTI Solutions, an in-flight entertainment solutions provider, has taken on the challenges and complexities of the in-flight environment, such as compatibility with in-flight entertainment hardware, and the logistics of frequently updating content. By integrating the PressReader application with DTI Solutions’ industry leading in-flight reading software, eReader, we are able to give  passengers the access to read newspapers and magazines using in-flight entertainment systems equipped with touch-screen technology.

“Flydubai has taken on-board digital media consumption to the next level with daily updates from our extensive catalog of newspaper and magazine titles,” said Alex Kroogman, CEO of NewspaperDirect. “We are delighted to have helped turn the concept of in-flight daily digital newspaper updates into a reality for the airline industry.”

Our unique project with flydubai will offer passengers access to more than 50 local and international newspaper titles from our vast catalog of thousands of publications. And prior to departure, air travelers are alsogiven access to over 2,300 newspapers and magazines on their personal devices via popular PressReader application (voted “Best App Ever” for 2011 in the iOS newspaper category and is nominated for 2012 in the same category).
