Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

British Airways introduces the Pressreader app for passengers (but will it now drop newspapers?)

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

British Airways has announced a six-month trial of the Pressreader service.

From now until May, BA customers who booked via ba.com, or who are physically in selected BA lounges, will be able to download more than 7,000 newspapers and magazines to their mobile device before they fly.

British Airways adds Pressreader

A link will be sent in your pre-departure email, 24 hours before your flight takes off, and will remain active for 72 hours.  The content does not expire, which means that you can download a holiday-worth of pool reading if you wish.

The content covers publications from 156 different countries in 63 languages, so it will be difficult to claim that you can’t find something of interest!
