Vietnam Airlines launches PressReader for in-flight reading
Passengers can read newspapers directly or save them to their personal electronic devices to read anywhere, anytime. The steps are very simple: Just access the Vietnam Airlines mobile app, go to PressReader, and verify the booking code and itinerary information.

The list of publications will include more than 7,000 newspapers and magazines of various genres such as news, economics, tourism, sports, and entertainment in 70 languages, completely free of charge by Vietnam Airlines. This is a particularly attractive benefit as many electronic editions of newspapers and magazines normally may have subscription fees of up to $300 per year.
With this application, passengers can bring thousands of newspapers on board, including international publications such as Bloomberg, The Economic Times, and The Wall Street Journal, as well as Vietnamese newspapers and magazines such as Vietnam Investment Review, Giao Thong, Vietnam News, and Heritage.

The service is valid for 48 hours (24 hours before scheduled departure to 24 hours after the plane lands). Only downloaded categories can be stored indefinitely on the guest device.
“Launching the PressReader service is our new advance in digitalising services and enhancing the flight experience for passengers. Moreover, this will help Vietnam Airlines to reduce paper and the transport load of the aircraft, thereby contributing to saving resources and environmental protection,” said Trinh Hong Quang, executive vice president of Vietnam Airlines.
Such an entertainment service is an outstanding advantage when passengers fly with Vietnam Airlines. Currently, Vietnam Airlines passengers can enjoy a variety of movies, music, newspapers, and magazines through personal screens on Airbus A350 and Boeing 787 aircraft; as well as WiFi on the Airbus A321neo.
