From the Airport’s Announcement:
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.
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.
Currently, travelers in KLIA Main Terminal 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.
