Airport advertising works even if valid market research is yet rather new. The USP's speak for themselves.
Interesting target audiences have enough time to consume advertising messages in an attractive environment.
These are created best at an airport.

Advertising pro's already see airports as important stages for a long time to communicate with highly wooed management consumers as well as wealthy private travellers.
Almost no other communication platform has gained so much importance over the last years.

Ten years ago an airplane was merely an expensive travelling alternative to busses and trains. Today it is the # 1 means of transport, even for shorter distances inside of Germany or Austria. The cheaper the flights get, the more passengers arrive - plus 25 % in the last six years alone.

45,7 % of business passengers are from the german speaking areas.
They use the plane at least 4 times a year due to AWA researches.
A high percentage of them even use a plane at least 10 times a year, mainly for business.
An over average net income makes them the number one target audience, to be reached best at airports.
Here is where they have time to see and consume.
The average time spent at the airport from arrival to boarding is 123 minutes.

This long time also happens with private travellers, especially going abroad on vacation. They are as interesting because everyone - including wealthy people - prefer not spending too much on flights, but may still be willing to spend on other things.

The size of the airport advertising space is also what makes it so attractive.
Outstanding installations such as the Vienna airport tower or the BMW grill in Munich are not feasible at many locations.
This advertising is highly attractive, booking is possible in various clusters and on its way to establish itself as mainstream.
It gives room for standard as well as individual campaigns.

Regional as well as national and international customers are reached.


Studies give an idea about its effectiveness.
Half of the questioned passengers at Frankfurt airport remembered airport advertising. 82% of them even recalled precise content. (Study Facts 2008 -
This effectiveness of campaigns was asked for by the Hamburg airport. More than 80% remembered a special BMW campaign. Only 3 % felt disturbed by airport advertising.
70% liked the topicality of advertising content.
All free studies and inquiries show the capacity of airport advertising in areas such as brand awareness, recognititon and sales promotion.
