Passengers flying with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines can now access the new KLM Media App, which enables passengers to access a range of international newspapers on their smartphone or tablet.
Newspapers can be downloaded from the app up to 24 hours prior to departure, with the number which travellers are allowed to download depending on their travel class and Flying Blue level.
KLM is offering a choice of thirteen newspapers to launch the KLM Media App: Le Monde, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Die Welt, El Pais, De Telegraaf, China News Weekly, International New York Times, Financial Times, China Times, Financieele Dagblad, Volkskrant and Trouw.
KLM’s own in-flight magazine, Holland Herald, is also available in the App. More papers and magazines are set to be added in the future.
“The KLM Media App is yet another improvement to the service KLM offers its passengers,” remarked Ryanne van der Eijk, SVP customer experience, KLM. “The app means a selection of newspapers is always to hand, up-to-date and available for all passengers, both on European and intercontinental flights. We are also exploring the possibility of expanding the app to become a complete entertainment app, including films and series.”
