Are you facing a long layover between flights in Australia or preparing for the trip back to the US and wondering how you’ll pass the time? Benefit from the new relationship between Virgin Australia and Newspaper Direct for access to read over 2,300 news publications on your mobile device.
Virgin Australia is now offering complimentary access to the wealth of publications available in Newspaper Direct’s app, PressReader, to travelers. The only requirement is that you must download the news from within one of Virgin’s lounges at airports throughout Australia. As the individual download rate from PressReader is $.99 per download, complimentary access to as many as you want is a real benefit.
PressReader offers newspapers and magazines from 97 countries in 55 different languages. The publications can be downloaded on an android, Blackberry, Honeycomb, Windows or Apple mobile device. Simply head over to PressReader to choose your device and download the app before you get to Virgin’s lounge and you’ll be set to start downloading and reading your favorites – plus some new ones!
With PressReader, you can download your selections and read them on the plane, in your hotel or while you’re relaxing before your flight. After you download the publication, internet access is not required to read it – and everything, from crossword puzzles to articles and advertisements – is included in the digital copy.
Virgin’s lounges can be found in the domestic airport terminals in Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Canberra, Mackay and the Gold Coast.
