Lufthansa is to expand its inflight entertainment options with a new e-journal download service at the end of January. The new offering allows passengers to access and download from a digital library direct to their phones, tablets and readers.

The eJournal service enables passengers to log on to a dedicated website using their name and reservation code prior to departure, and then download up to two e-publications into their device free of charge.

The service has been available in first and business lounges at selected airports since 2015, but has now been extended to all passengers using Lufthansa aircraft.

The carrier says the benefits extend beyond convenience to passengers who no longer need to wait for a specific publication to be made available. It said that digitizing a wide range of inflight newspapers and magazines enables a broader selection of onboard reading material in more languages, and also saves paper, ink and overall takeoff weight enabling more efficient aircraft operations.

The carrier said that from March it will expand the system to offer more variety and download options, although some classes of travel would be required to pay an extra fee for more than two downloads.

The move comes on the heels of an industry-wide push to digital inflight offerings, and the carrier’s September 2015 agreement with Global mobile satellite communications services provider Inmarsat to offer high-speed inflight Wi-Fi broadband access on some 180 Airbus A320 aircraft from mid-2016.
