High Life magazine

High Life magazine

Britain's original travel magazine, High Life has been redefined for a post-TripAdvisor, post-Instagram generation. We don't just offer the usual travelogues, instead our features immerse our readers in the culture, politics and social life of a place. We want to feed people's curiosity about the world - and change their views on destinations.

Distributed in every seatback on all British Airways flights, High Life has a potential global audience of 3.8 million per month and 60% of readers spend 20+ minutes with the magazine.

Available on every seatback on all domestic and short-haul flights Business Life is read by a potential 2.4 million short-haul customers every month. This makes it the second largest business title among top British businessmen and women.
