Why Airport?

Airport experience is universal to all travelers: they are excited, feel good in that surrounding, and at the same time have the same needs for entertainment and new information. They are also at a point of captivation with a high dwell time where they are able and willing to absorb, engage and interact with media messages. This mindset presents a unique opportunity for advertisers to exploit, with the latest research in the field validating this fact and showing that consumers are exceptionally receptive to this media channel and a high majority of more than 85% of international flyers enjoying airport advertising. They expect to see premium brands and new technology as part of the ambiance on the airport, providing advertisers with an effective media for engaging and building a stronger relationship with this highly valuable audience.
