“Editorial mix and brand fit are paired to not only inform and entertain, but as a brand extension product it also becomes a highly leverageable tool in communicating with our passengers.” As a marketing communication tool, she adds, a correctly leveraged in-flight magazine adds value well beyond the initial moment of engagement and consumption.
Award-winning writer Tshepang Molisana is editor of Places Magazine. “The development of a magazine that appeals cross-culturally and pursues the essence of our continent has been a challenge not only met, but satisfied. Our intent is to showcase the richness of Africa’s heritage, the personalities and the talent that is in abundance.
