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
- Asiana Inflight Magazine
- British Airways High Life
- British Airways FIRST Life
- CX Discovery (Cathay Pacific)
- Flybe Uncovered
- Jetstar Magazine
- Lufthansa Magazine
- QANTAS Magazine
- 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.
