Advertising on Planes
Another interesting advertising medium under airport advertising is advertising on planes. One important fact about advertising on planes is that while on planes passengers are mostly prohibited from using any networks for phone and Internet. This gives brands an excellent opportunity of keeping the passengers engaged with their ads.
Following are a few examples of advertising on planes:
Inflight Magazines Advertising: Every airline has its own magazine that has articles on tourism, product details to buy, food menu, games etc. It is kept in front of every seat on the flight and is one of the most common examples of advertising on planes.
Boarding Pass Branding: Boarding pass is the most important piece of paper that is essential for air travel. Branding on boarding passes is a popular example of advertising on planes.
Meal Tray Branding: Meal tray is a foldable table tucked in the seat in front of every passenger. It remains visible during the entire flight duration.
Boarding Ramp Branding: Boarding ramp is used to board and deboard the plane. Usually, there is a long and slow queue before boarding and deboarding hence advertising on boarding ramps is a good example of advertising on planes.
Inflight Sampling: Inflight sampling refers to distributing product samples among passengers to try.
Aerial advertising refers to ad options involving balloons, aircrafts, drones etc that display advertisements in the sky or high in the air. Although airport or airline advertising doesn’t fit in the traditional definition of aerial advertising, impact airport advertising options like aircraft wrapping can loosely come under aerial advertising.
For example, “Kabali” movie was promoted on an Air Asia Aircraft. Although aircrafts fly too high to be seen during their flight, while landing and taking off these aircrafts work as good as conventional aerial advertising.
Other popular examples of aerial advertising on The Media Ant website are sky hoarding and sky banners where an aircraft is used to carry fabric hoarding and banners hanging from the aircraft. Aerial advertising also covers hot air balloons that have ads printed over them.
We encounter ads everywhere- while reading newspapers, watching television, listening to radio and driving on roads. However, airport ads are different. Airport ads refer to ads encountered from the moment one enters an airport to the time they board the flight and from the time they deboard the flight and leave the airport.
Airport ads include various display boards within the airport premises, stickers on airport infrastructure like elevator, conveyor belt, escalator, luggage trolleys, tarmac buses as well as newspapers free for reading.
Two reasons why airport ads are so popular among brands are:
- Captive audience: An average air passenger spends close to 2-3 hours in the airport going through various checking in processes. During this time, airport ads play a major role in keeping them engaged.
- Premium audience: Flight tickets are expensive when compared to other modes of transport. Also, a number of corporate employees travel by air on a regular basis. Airport ads are a great medium to reach out to these audiences.
Creative Airport Ads
A creative airport ad can leave a deep impact on the audience's mind. Passengers spend hours waiting for their flight and creative airport ads are good opportunities to gain their undivided attention.
Following are three examples of creative airport ads in the past from airports across the world:
- Conveyor Belt creative airport ad by Ford at Budapest Airport: To showcase how big the boot space for Ford Fusion is, Ford used a wall wrap to create an illusion that all the luggage was coming out of the Ford Fusion’s storage space.
- Display Board creative airport ad by BMW at Munich Airport: BMW erected a display board at Munich airport that looked like a front view of a BMW car and lighted up with engine sounds whenever someone went near.
- Airport floor creative airport ad during Tokyo Olympics 2020 at Tokyo Airport: During Tokyo Olympics, floor of one entire terminal at Tokyo Airport was turned into a running track.
