Catch up with your favourite inflight magazine with Apple Newstand

Links on Head for Points pay us an affiliate commission. A list of our partners is here.

Newsstand was introduced to the iphone and ipad with iOS5, as a depository for downloaded magazine and newspaper subscriptions.

A number of airlines have added their inflight magazines to Newsstand, available to download for no charge. If you are missing a particular fix, here are a few I have found in the Newsstand Store, and I’m sure there are more:

  • Air Canada enRoute
  • Air France Magazine
  • AnadoluJet
  • Asiana Inflight Magazine
  • British Airways High Life
  • British Airways FIRST Life
  • CX Discovery (Cathay Pacific)
  • Flybe Uncovered
  • Jetstar Magazine
  • Lufthansa Magazine
  • QANTAS Magazine
  • SAS
  • United Airlines Hemisphere

It is also worth remembering that an overseas holiday is a good time to take advantage of the free trial subscriptions offered online by some newspapers. There is a 14-day free trial of The Telegraph iPad app at the moment, for example, which would see you through a holiday.

    What fun! But, oddly, all three BA magazines say they are unavailable…!

  2. Most are iPad only.
