Passengers at KLIA & KLIA 2 can now download free ebooks for their travels

Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2, 23rd April 2016 – Travelling can now be a more enjoyable experience at KL International Airport (KLIA) especially for book lovers.

For those of you who fly regularly, you will now have a new lifestyle facility which grants every passenger with access to electronic books at no cost.

This smart facility operates through the use of Bluetooth beacon signals which work on the principles of geo-fencing micro-location technology. It communicates with passengers’ smart phone applications, allowing them to access a special virtual library of eBooks.

First in the world ebook beacon facility to be introduced in KLIA

These eBooks can be downloaded for free at KLIA and subsequently kept in private devices including smart phones for a period of two (2) days. Once the eBook has been downloaded, passengers are able to read the eBook even without internet facilities, meaning they will be able to read it during a flight.

This facility, which consists of 40 eBook beacons strategically placed at locations within KLIA Main Terminal and klia2, is the first of its kind in the world.

The airport is part of the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) where new technology is actively pursued.

Hence, it is no surprise that as the operator of KLIA, Malaysia Airports, has joined hands with e-Sentral and Perbadanan Kota Buku, to introduce this technology.

Currently, travelers in KLIA Main Terminal and klia2 have more than 800 eBook titles from various genres in English, Malay, and Mandarin. Each person is able to borrow a maximum of 2 titles at any one time.

This inaugural eBook beacon infrastructure was first demonstrated today in conjunction with World Book Day 2016 during an event in klia2.

This Bluetooth beacon programming simplifies the whole process for eBook borrowing, which is an innovative idea that complements traditional books. With this pioneering facility, we hope KLIA can be a model to the rest of the world,” stated Tuan Sayed Munawar Syed Mustar, Chief Executive Officer of Perbadanan Kota Buku.

Commenting on Malaysia Airports’ objective in this collaboration, Tuan Haji Zainol Mohd Isa, General Manager of Malaysia Airports (Sepang) said, “Malaysia Airports places high priority on improving the total airport experience for our passengers, Therefore, we are always on the lookout to implement initiatives that will transform KLIA into an innovative digitised environment which will resonate well with our mission of creating joyful experiences.”

Missing? Nope, we are in BAHTERA & BFM.

If you realised, we are sort of going missing this week. So where were we?

eSentral was in BAHTERA, which was held from 19th-20th August in KL Convention Center. It was a gathering event for all Bumiputera entrepreneurs to share their ideas and success stories. It was a great event with as much as 4,000 visitors. We had a lot of fun talking with people who are interested in digital books and digital publishing software, eStudio.

Then, our co-founder and managing director, Faiz al-Shahab was on air this morning at BFM 89.9
