Airbus and Royole teamed up to demonstrate a digital inflight magazine - that makes use of a thin flexible OLED panel.

The two companies have been working together since 2018, and are now presenting a prototype device. The device looks like an iPad, but feels like a flexible magazine. The OLED display looks better than currently-used LCD displays in airplane seats, and also consumes less power and are also lighter.

Another advantage is that the digital magazine is easier to clean and sanitize between flights compared to a print magazine.

This device is just a prototype, but Airbus says it plans to install it on a test airplane soon, and may offer it to their customers in the future.
