30 Inflight Magazine Apps for iPad

What’s the first thing you do once you’ve buckled yourself in for a flight? Reach for the in-flight magazine?

If you’re a travel tragic like ourselves, you devour in-flight magazines even when your feet are firmly planted on the ground. With so many airlines digitizing their magazines for tablet devices, there’s now easy access to in-flight magazines to accompany any stage of your travel research and planning.

Often free, not only do you get a chance to catch up on articles about destinations of interest, but they also enable you to browse the in-flight entertainment guide before you fly to decide whether to load up your iPad with movies, TV shows and reading material more suited to your personal preferences.

Below is a selection of in-flight magazine offerings from various European, American and Asia-Pacific based airlines.

Of course, if you have your own magazine you’d like to digitize, we can help with that also.
