Aiport advertising and travel retail

Advertising bridges the gap between airport passengers and the brands represented in the retail environment at the airports.

In the past few years, more and more brands have recognised the advantages of airport advertising, for their Travel Retail sales, as well as for their downtown performances.

A successful Travel Retail  launch is one that is supported by a high-profile advertising and promotional campaign, both within and outside the retail envrionment.

About 90% of all travelers arrive to the airport 1+ hours prior to departure.

As they travel through the airport, about 3 out of 4 Frequent Flyers will read your message.
