KrisWorld, the airline’s inflight entertainment system, through a
collaboration with Singapore’s National Library Board (NLB).

“Audio books are the next best thing for busy
travellers who do not have time for a ‘good read’. They can help
bring a story to life using voices, tonations, accents, and sound
effects that spark the listener’s imagination. The listener can
also hear the words exactly as the author intended, enhancing the
‘reading’ experience,” said Ms Tay Ai Cheng, Assistant Chief
Executive and Chief Librarian, Public Library Services Group,
National Library Board.
Mr Tan Pee Teck, Senior Vice President Product and Services
at Singapore Airlines, added, “While audio books have been a feature in our
inflight entertainment offering for some time, this new selection
of titles recommended by the National Library Board has broadened
our range of fiction books. We are constantly seeking to improve
the entertainment experience for our customers and hope this will
be just the start, with more audio books to be offered in future.”
To provide travellers with a wider
choice, the list of audio books is refreshed monthly.
