Discover 17 Middle East In-Flight Magazines and a total of 250 Magazines from 120 Countries.
There are 17 in-flight magazines from 15 Middle East airlines in The In-Flight Magazines Report, and this number has been growing with each edition. That's not really a big surprise because the number of airline passengers flying to, from, and through the Middle East has been growing each year too!
Most of these magazines are published in English, with a few publishing in Arabic too.
Here are some examples of the Middle East in-flight magazines listed in The In-Flight Magazines Report: Emirates' Open Skies, Gulf Air's Gulf Life, and Oman Air's Wings of Oman.
In-flight magazines publish travel content, of course, but they also offer a diverse range of content that includes general interest pieces as well as articles on business, entertainment, health, and lifestyle.
With almost every article, there is some connection to one of the destinations to which the airline flies.
According to the International Air Transport Association's (IATA) Air Passenger Monthly Results Report - Dec 2015, global air passenger traffic grew by 6.5% in 2015. This is the fastest pace of growth since the big rebound which followed the Global Financial Crisis in 2010.
According to IATA, the fastest international growth for a region was registered by Middle Eastern airlines, up 10.5% year-on-year. Middle Eastern carriers’ share of total international traffic rose to 14.2% in 2015, overtaking North American carriers (13.4%).
With growth like that, there will be plenty of passengers reading Middle East inflight magazines in the year ahead.
