Airports - The Symbolic Gateways to A City, A Country

India is growing at a tremendous pace. People are flying from city to city making the airports busier by the hour. Passenger traffic at the Indian Airports has crossed over 180 million passengers annually making Civil Aviation the fastest growing arm of India’s transport infrastructure while playing an increasingly important role of providing super fast connectivity.

With the growth in the Indian economy over the past decade- the air travellers profile has evolved from only businessmen and affluent professionals to today’s passenger’s mix of large number of mid level business executives, young & old frequent vacation lovers, people visiting family and friends etc.

Airports have become symbolic gateways to any city and a country as it creates the first & last impression on a traveller’s mind about the city which makes it a very important place for brands to ensure they make their presence felt for relating their brand to that city. In this fast paced world, brands need to find their foothold to leverage their strengths with their most sought after target group - the distinguished air traveller. Airport advertising thus has become an unprecedented opportunity to promote a brand and one of the most important & direct channels to reach high spending consumers.

Advertising Friendly - New Age Airport

The trend of privatization of airports in the last few years has not only seen increase in air traffic sectors, newer operators, and increase in traffic air passengers but also a newer way in which advertising is treated at the airport. Advertising today forms a part of the overall experience for a traveller within his average 60 minutes dwell time and is positioned as a accessory to the overall offerings at the airport.

The above is proven through participation of globally renowned airport media specialist agencies integrating global standards of airport advertising across airports handled by private operators such as GVK & GMR.

There is an unparallel difference between the quality & quantity and revenues from advertising offerings between the privately vs the non-privately operated airports resulting in the fact that upcoming airports have adopted the belief of handling advertising as major revenue earning category and making provisions in their airport layouts at the inception stages.

In India, Air transport has evolved significantly and today boosts few of the top airports in the world – Delhi, Hyderabad, Bengaluru etc and is further set to continue changing the travel experience of the commuters by providing even better world class facilities and is constantly upgrading the existing facilities and adding new airports. Exhibiting signs of further enlargement, India is likely to have more than 250 airports by 2030.

Airports - A Complete Rejuvenating experience

Airports are no longer associated with long queues for check-in, immigration, security check and boarding but with their unique relaxing and luxurious shopping & dining experience to its passengers. With an average dwell time of 60 minutes per traveller- the new age airports provide various facilities to spoil oneself from luxury spa’s, world cuisines restaurants & ultra luxury retail offering unique products only available at the airport outlets. With a rejuvenated mind each traveller is more receptive to advertising communication placed at various touch-points at the airport ensuring better campaign registration.

The varied passenger engagement offerings within the airport environment has resulted into newer brand categories to advertise for the purpose of associating their brand the service experiences.

Airport Advertising- Most Premium Touchpoint

Airport Advertising generally provides an engaging experience to the target group because of its attention grabbing, glamorous and larger than life impact. Few means of Airport Advertising include kiosks, jukeboxes, screens, billboards, product display, projected images, plasma displays, experiential marketing etc.

Few reasons why Airport Advertising is becoming indispensible:
Great impact: Airport advertising provides focussed and compelling viewership and there is no escape route. And because of this reason, airport ads render great impact to the target audience than any other means of outdoor advertising.

Clutter free and eye-catching: Airport ads are mostly clutter free and eye-catching. The messages in such type of ads are conveyed in big and bold words which are user friendly to go through.

Flexibility: Airport ads enjoy vast spaces, high ceilings, modern and discerningly decorated indoors etc. Such ads not only provide a pleasing ambience for the target audience but are also compliant with flexibility.

Unique ambience: Airports provide a unique ambience which can be utilised as a venue to display and strengthen a particular brand message. And that is how airport ads provide effective and desired results. Also, the huge open spaces in the airports contribute to the over-all effect.

Fresh and interactive: Airport advertising is loaded with fresh and interactive designs and communications. Besides, people generally love going through those glamorous and hi-tech ad displays in the airport.

Premium and bespoken: Airport advertising is a premium and bespoken mode of promotion as compared to other modes of advertising.

Availability: One striking advantage of airport advertising is its availability round the year. Airport ads are generally present round the year and that is how they provide greater impact to the target audience.

Good convergence of target audience or corporate leaders: Airports are generally good meeting place for target groups, decision makers or corporate leaders. Hence, airport ads are likely to render more effective result than other modes of outdoor advertising.

Why Airport Advertising

It’s the hardest working media - Your Ad will be present 365 days of the year, 24 hours a day, you will have a constant presence in front of your audience with clever use of quality graphics, colour, and lighting, all working harder for your dollar.

Has the most captive audience- The airport has the most captive audience with an average wait time of 55 minutes before the flight and a 15-25 minutes wait in baggage claim, giving your message a long time to affect your audience.

Has highest income demographics- The income level of the people that travel through the airport is higher than any other facility in your area. These people also spend more money on leisure and luxury items.

Is the most targeted geographic media- Most of the executives who travel are decision-makers for their companies. When targeting business and doing “image orientated” advertising, the airport covers most of the local and many national business leaders. If your goal is to target the business audience or upper income group in your market, airport advertising is your best buy.

Has the lowest cost per thousand- Airport advertising is economical. You get a low cost per thousand and the message is delivered by high visible graphics; with the largest single audience available in any market versus TV, radio and newspaper.

Airport Dwell Time - Critical to Brands

With airline travel remaining remarkably consistent throughout the year, Passengers are a captive audience having to pass through significant holding areas of the airport such as ticketing, security and baggage claim. Different sized displays can reach a larger percentage of traffic in each airport as all passengers follow common paths.

With an average dwell time of over 60 minutes, passengers have enough leisure time to browse the various advertising led awareness campaigns- both static and experiential. These clusters of captive audience in such relaxed mindsets are extremely difficult to target otherwise. Hence it is observed that many brands engage into dedicated airport centric campaigns as they earn the maximum registration for their brand.

Methodology of data collection

Identifying & Evaluating Trends through studying Historical Ad Spend patterns in the last 2 years

We conducted Personal Interviews with Airport Media Concessionaires of 17 airports in the top cities of India which helped us assess the Trends in Ad-Spend pattern in their respective airports in the last 2 years.

We further conducted Personal Interviews with more than 25 Brand Managers handling brands for the Airport Advertising Category and 15 OOH Media buying Specialists to understand the rating & relevance of each airport from their personal experience of conducting airport advertising campaigns over last 2 years in the top Indian cities.

Lastly, our interviews with’s Quality Board who have a collective experience of over 200+ years helped us in evaluating how brand considerations have fluctuated from one airport media to another chosen over a much longer period (5 years) and clearly charting out the current favourite options in each city.

Economic Importance of City to India

The most important factor while choosing an airport for advertising is the economic relevance of that particular city to the Indian economy which also has a direct impact on the no of travellers in & out from that city. Passenger traffic no's from the AAI complement the above the theory and therefore become an important statistical no while considering the top airports in the country. As per the data, Delhi is ranked the top airport with close to 36 million flyers going from IGI every year, Mumbai is 2nd with over 30 million passengers followed by Bengaluru (12.6 million), Chennai (12 million), Kolkata ( 10.3 million) and Hyderabad (8.3 million) respectively. All major business cities of India today boost an international standard airport like- Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru- some also considered as the top airport in the world. Business Travellers who are key decision makers across the country can be reached out by focusing on some of these key airports. Local Airports are also very important for brands while targeting the local business & other travellers of that city and therefore these airports feature a lot of local brands unlike the airports of major cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad Kolkata etc which have campaigns running irrespective of location but will have dominating branding exercise carried out across the year by brands like BMW, SAP, Mastercard, SAIL, L&T, Samsung, Citibank, Mercedes etc who will have only seasonal presence in other smaller local airports.

Airports at other smaller but prominent business locations have also got a shot in the arm from the Indian Governments policy to modernise all strategic location airports in the first phase and plan to have a total of 250 operation airports by 2030. There has been a drastic change in the Indian aviation sector over the last decade with the most visible impact seen with the modernization of various airports under AAI and also starting up Public Private Partnerships Projects with major infrastructure players like GMR, GVK etc to build world class airports providing best customer experience w.r.t parking management, easy navigation, most hygienic civic facilities, addressing requirements for kids and elderly people, concierge facilities, effective security, cooling, cleanliness amongst other basic facilities. With the INDIA SHINNING story, air travel is now not only limited to the ultra rich but people from income levels and different age groups can be seen travelling for various reasons like pleasure, business or meeting family thus making the fastest mode of transport- AIRTRAVEL the most preferred mode.

Airport Media Buying - An Art

Airport Media Buying is as fascinating as the media itself. Unlike most of the traditional OOH media asset owners, the Airport media is set up by organized media houses who are selling this media basis research showcasing confirmed reach/audience count, frequency and impact. It is also the most durable and accountable media and therefore it’s pricing is premium, very discrete and differentiated from client to client basis their volume of investments and longevity of campaigns. Some of the buying considerations are mentioned below:

Plan your Airport Campaign well in Advance

Airport’s as a touchpoint for advertising are the most preferred by all Brand Custodians and hence there are always many takers for the various media options at the airport. This surging demand of airport media makes it extremely complicated for a media buyer to get a grip over the best visible spaces as most of the options are either sold on a long term basis to brands or have a pipeline of brands pegging the highest price to win over the access for their brand.

This process of short listing the best spaces is regular for most of the clients at the airport and therefore a decent lead time of 30-45 days is something which should be considered before attempting to execute an effective airport campaign.

Conduct 3 pre-Rides Minimum

While each airport media looks great in the power point presentation, its real impact to moving traffic cannot be ascertained without a physical airport inspection. It is also observed that the airport authorities sometimes uses the same facility for both departure and arrival and therefore minimum 3 visits on separate occasions and different timings of the day are critical to understand the real exposure a particular site can achieve for your brand.

Such pre-rides enable you to understand each Inventory at the airport helping you plan a 360* airport campaign with great amount of ease.

Always Engage an Airport Specialist Agency

While we can understand the flow of traffic and real impact formats during our pre-rides, buying airport media is not the real business for a brand manager/advertiser. Engaging an airport media specialist agency will help the advertiser buy efficiently and enable smooth execution of the campaign and will also keep the advertiser appraised about newer media developments at the airport on regular occasions.

This ease of execution and sharing of knowledge will enable an advertiser with a much better understand of the airport media environment helping him become more wise in his decision making in the long term. Our many client interactions on this subject has confirmed that the airport specialist agency is able to provide atleast 20% efficiency either through reduction in costs of through increase of more media mass within the same costs.

Long Term Vs. Short Term Campaigns: Special Consideration

While only 20-25% of the airport media inventory is termed as spectacular, the rest of the media inventory is present at all touch points of passenger connect and is sold generally as networks promising frequency of eyeballs. The long term campaigns of minimum 6 months onwards generally see latching on to the spectacular formats while short duration tactical campaigns of 30 days take networks of signage’s for ensuring reach.

Efficient buying of spectacular formats is not possible through price cuts but asking for value adds to compliment the impact of the spectacular site through sustenance mediums. It is generally observed that an additional same value of spectacular media can be earned through proper negotiation at the time of long term booking. For short duration campaigns, it is essential that advertisers take more impact but lesser number of days to work around moderate occupancy which any airport media concessionaire operates with.

Digital Media: Use it effectively for short term campaigns

Combining the three negatives of increasing media rentals for traditional formats, increasing production and mounting charges which the client have to bear in addition to the media cost and digital media being highly perishable, digital media works best to execute short term campaign at the last minute. The campaign execution is super-fast, it’s gets your brand noticed all over the airport within seconds, the ad-frequency can be increased at any time and with such flexibility, digital media can be bought very efficiently. Digital media allows penetration of your brand at an entry cost and lead time, much lesser than any other media at the airport., your media integration specialist
