British Airways’ familiar, award-winning on board magazine, High Life, is moving online.
Created with publishing house, Cedar, the online magazine will also include a new section for Business Life which will replace the current on-board paper versions of both publications.
Each issue will include monthly audio stories, photo experiences and live panels so customers can experience the magic of travel on the go wherever they are in the world. The magazine will continue to feature first person stories from travel experts and carefully curated guides for exploring cities across the world.
As well as trusted travel content, High Life digital will keep customers updated with any changes to the airline’s customer experience and route network.
The magazine will be emailed to five million Executive Club customers every month and customers can download the magazine on board, using the airline’s in-flight WiFi free. High Life will also continue to offer British Airways’ partners and advertisers new opportunities to reach the airline’s customers with products and offers, through BA media*
Hamish McVey, British Airways’ Head of Brand and Marketing said:
Our High Life magazine has been a source for travel inspiration for our customers for nearly half a century. When we trialled moving High Life online at the beginning of this year, it was a great success.
We know our customers value technology and a contactless journey, especially in the current climate, so we are delighted to now be able to provide over five million customers a month with digital High Life. We hope this new digital magazine will help customers plan their holidays with our expert holiday guides, as well as provide the latest information as we make important changes to our customer experience.
Clare Broadbent, Cedar’s CEO said:
High Life online is now here: online, on email, and on board through your personal device, bringing wonderful and trusted travel inspiration to bigger audiences than ever before. With High Life’s mix of expert writers, photographers and audio-visual storytellers sharing the latest travel ideas from around the world, we can’t wait to help travellers to dream, plan and take off in 2020 and beyond.
