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

A few weeks ago, we announced the exciting news that PressReader was now available on-board flydubai flights – a first for the airline industry! The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and we couldn’t be happier with the partnership.

You can read the official press release on our website, and here is what our partners are saying:

Patrick Préfontaine, president of DTI Solutions, said: “We’re delighted to have helped flydubai achieve this historic project. We truly believe that e-Reader solutions are strategic for airlines to provide passengers with relevant and engaging content, while benefiting from the noted advantages of digital content such as weight and cost reductions compared to paper-based media on-board.”

 

flydubai’s Chief Executive Officer, Ghaith Al Ghaith, explains: “Daily news consumption trends have shifted since the introduction of smartphones and personal electronic devices, and passengers now expect to be able to read their favorite newspapers electronically on board. Offering daily newspaper updates digitally is a real logistical challenge for airlines, and flydubai is proud to be the first to provide this enhanced passenger experience.”

We are also very excited to be extending the benefits of this solution to other airlines and provide their passengers an in-flight access to thousands of newspapers and magazines from around the world! Stay tuned for future announcements!
