Print magazines are still popular, however digital editions are taking flight — quite literally as Brussels Airlines is going digital, just in time for holiday travel.

Brussels Airlines is doing its part to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions switching to digital reading material for passengers. According to the airline, which takes 250 flights per day, digital alternatives impact weight which impacts CO2 emissions.

A Positive Trend

While Brussels Airlines is the latest to switch to digital reading, the airline is not the first. Simply Flying reports that both KLM and Finnair airlines have stopped providing in-flight print publications and instead opted for digital editions of flyer favorites. Additional airlines like Air Canada, Singapore Airlines and China Southern have also adopted digital in-flight entertainment.

An easy and convenient way to help do your part is to download your favorite digital magazines from Flipster before you take off this holiday season — or all year long.
