In July 2008, Ezweni was awarded two contracts to supply local newspapers and magazines to two caterers at OR Tambo and Cape Town International Airports for their airlines and this was the start of our Airport Division. In January 2009 we secured our 3rd contract with a large Airline with the supply of newspapers and the management of a gate service which supplies magazines to all boarding passengers.

In February 2010 a new caterer was added to our stable with another 3 following suit in 2012. There are many opportunities still to come and we are growing within this division. We currently supply several caterers and supply over 20 airlines.


Emirates Global Gate Service in conjunction with Dawsons service in excess of 102 flights per day around the globe.

EZWENI has secured the contract with Emirates to hand out free copies of selected magazines to passengers flying out on Emirates Airlines from both O.R. Tambo and CT International Airports.
There are currently 4 flights per day 7 days a week leaving Johannesburg.

We have permission from The Airport Authority to implement the Gate Service for each flight.
Stands will be paced per boarding gate per flight, these stands will be stocked with magazines 60 minutes pre departure and will be cleared away 30 minutes after the gates are closed.

Passenger behaviour studies show that reading plays an important part in providing structure to flights- particularly long haul.

The pattern:


Reading is a central part of a business flight experience: Up to 1-3 hours of flight time is spent reading, depending on the length of flight.
Airline channels to promote new product or growth of existing product.

Emirates would like a variety of titles on the stands to cater for all passengers boarding their flight. They would like to start with 150 copies of various titles per day (50 copies per flight), should they require more this amount will be increased.

Samples of your publication will need to be sent to Dubai for approval. We will get a letter from Emirates stating which titles they have approved, a request from them for the supply. This letter along with POD's will be forwarded to you the Publisher for ABC purposes.

These copies can be current or back issues (no dated back issues will be accepted, only volumes or issue numbers). We would need to have confirmation of participation for a minimum of 3 months. We will require between 500-1000 copies per month minimum for a period of 6 months. Please note that Emirates requires payment before they will accept your copies. Please contact us for pricing.

Listing process could take up to 3 months.
