Altitude has launched the airline supported Inflight Magazine app, allowing passengers to download the latest in-flight magazines.
Touted by its creators as a “one-stop mobile travel resource”, the Altitude Inflight Magazines app (available for iOS and Android) provides one-click download access to dozens of in-flight magazines for on-the-go reading.
Each participating airline’s latest in-flight magazine (including Adria Airways, Air Namibia, Air Vanuatu, Aurigny, Azerbaijan Airlines, Lao Airlines, and Ukraine International Airlines ) as well as a selection of back issues for the past year are available on the app. Readers can sort magazines by airline name, magazine name, and geographic region, and receive notifications when new issues of their favourite titles are available on the platform.
Talks are underway with additional airline partners.
According to the app’s co-creator Niels Dam: “The Altitude Inflight Magazines app extends each airline’s latest travel destination articles and airline news to an engaged and affluent global readership audience that exists beyond the traditional seat-back pocket. We’re opening it up to a truly global audience.”
Dam explained: “The in-flight magazine sector was ripe for disruption, and by extending the shelf life of this amazing content to thousands of new readers for months beyond the historical 30 day lifespan, the Altitude Inflight Magazines app enhances value for airlines and travellers alike.”
Co-founder Henry Tenby, added: “The app promotes an airline’s brand and destinations to potentially millions of global readers who may not yet be passengers, but could very well be in the future.”
