DMD works with over 120 airlines across 115 airports worldwide and each year manages more than 130 million daily newspapers and magazines, through a worldwide network of service and distribution hubs.
Leveraging our unrivalled commercial contacts with publishers around the world we are the only service provider to source and deliver content globally and build selected print portfolios specific to every client's needs.
The customer benefits of our single supplier solution:
We can supply a vast range of reading material: national and international newspapers and digitally printed same-day editions; newsstand and branded inflight magazines; digital editions for seatback systems and personal devices onboard. We also provide bespoke kids' packs, deliver third-party inflight media and handle critical crew documentation.
Supplying over 130 million newspapers and magazines to airlines each year, we are uniquely positioned to source the best, most appropriate print titles for a client's customer base, and to achieve for it the most favourable commercial terms.
As an airline's strategic partner we source, negotiate and secure media content from the world's top national and international publishers, and provide reliable distribution channels direct to aircraft, gate and lounge, at any commercial airport worldwide.
Our considerable experience and global reach help clients profile the optimum reading materials for their flights, to improve both passenger satisfaction levels and onboard sales revenue. Profiling can be specific to individual flight and class, day of week or time of day, and refined by season or ad hoc in response to festivals, major sporting events, etc.
DMD works across all significant publishing sectors, from news & current affairs to business, sports & leisure, fashion & lifestyle, science & technology, special interest and children's.
We are expert in sourcing titles on-demand within and beyond these sectors, to meet the needs and exceed the service expectations of all our client airlines.
Choices of language are important, and dependent on such factors as airport of departure, destinations served, nationality of an airline and its key passenger demographic, region of location (for airline and airport) and airport status (Is it a hub for international connections?).
DMD can expertly advise on issues of language and culture around airside reading, and represent our clients in sourcing the perfect content mix for their specific environments.
