Here’s some good news, a new magazine is going to be appearing on newsstands this month. Delta—you know the airline—is launching a new in-flight magazine. Along with giving away free copies on every flight, 15,000 copies will be available on more than 2,500 newsstands across America, including Barnes & Noble and Borders. The cost is $3.99
WWD reports a spokesperson from the company believes that since the magazine will cover lifestyle, travel and business, the airline feels people will want to access it in the months they arenâ€™t traveling.
At the helm of the magazine is Jayne Haugen Olson. Formerly a senior editor for Mpls.St.Paul’s Magazine Jayne wrote and edited articles on home, retail, and lifestyle features. She is a frequent contributor to local radio and television programs on these and other trend topics.
The inaugural issue features Heidi Klum on the cover and has a total of 132 pages, with 40 ad pages, 61 edit pages and 31 Delta information pages. In this economy itâ€™s exciting to see any new magazines on the shelves. Even if it is just a vehicle to publicize an airline!
