The airport passenger experience in Sri Lanka is about to be revolutionised by Magzter, the largest digital newsstand in the world. As the inaugural Smart Reading Airports in South Asia, Bandaranaike International Airport and Jaffna International Airport have formed a partnership with Magzter.

By partnering with this organisation, passengers can access their preferred magazines and newspapers in an airport setting via an innovative, frictionless, and contactless digital reading experience. In accordance with the 'Go Green' initiative, Magzter's worldwide campaign to promote digital reading has already helped preserve tens of thousands of trees. Contributing to Magzter's dedication to a touchless and environmentally sustainable reading experience, the collaboration signifies a substantial advancement in the digital reading revolution. The Smart Reading Airport initiative seeks to revolutionise the travel experience for a vast number of passengers across the globe as Magzter proceeds with its global expansion.

With this, the collaboration between airports and global service providers, which offers smart reading opportunities and contributes to the industry's digitalisation progress, is met with great satisfaction from the Minister of Ports, Shipping, and Aviation, the Honourable Nimal Siripala De Silva.
