Following a tender process, Singapore Airlines has become the first Asian airline client to offer passengers access to Media Carrier’s premium e-paper library. Under the terms of the deal, Media Carrier will deliver a selected collection of international digital newspapers and magazines that are integrated via an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) server into the e-Library section of Singapore Airlines’ mobile app.
Via the app, passengers will be able to choose from more than 120 premium publications from 22 countries in 12 languages, all selected by Singapore Airlines from Media Carrier’s wide-ranging portfolio. Passengers using the app can download and read as many publications as they like free of charge within a time frame specified in the app. Downloaded publications remain saved as PDFs in the app so that passengers can continue reading the content for a specified period after their flight. The publications are provided in their full versions and familiar print layout for easy and intuitive reading and browsing.
