Tarun Jha, Head of Marketing – ŠKODA Auto India

Since the Mumbai airport is one of the largest airports in the country in terms of footfalls, it was a no-brainer and a significant choice for us. Another important factor was that Mumbai has always been one of the top markets for brand ŠKODA and capitalizing on this was an obvious decision. As we are launching a series of new cars in 2020 and 2021, airport displays are a great way to showcase the new cars to the prospects and generate enquiries. With Unlock 5.0 and the increase in the number of passengers following the reinstatement of premium and business travellers at Mumbai airport, it was a strategic call for us to have our presence at the Mumbai airport to showcase our products. Like always, we wanted our promo display to stand out, capture the attention, showcase the grandeur and wow factor of brand ŠKODA. We have always been a ‘Simply Clever’ brand when it comes to our marketing activities. We believe in extracting the most out of a specific idea rather than being all over the place. It cannot be a better time for us to do this activity leading to the launch of our new cars in the next year.

Vivek Gupta, Marketing Head – Somany Ceramics

Airport media is so substantial to us. The premium pillar media located at security check-in area are very strategically placed, and it will give a big boost to Somany as a brand to entice passenger’s eyeballs when they are waiting for security frisking. The brand campaign with Salman Khan will also showcase Somany’s humble and rooted approach with the tag line “Zameen se Judey”. Moreover, Salman’s personality, will help bring forth campaign’s essence, which is, ‘no matter how high you soar or how successful you are, you should always be rooted & remain grounded.”

Ajay Varghese, Vice President – Investment, Omnicom MediaGroup

VW has always believed in connecting with the right audience on the right platform. Keeping in mind the communication for Tiguan and T-Roc the ideal touch points have always been the Mumbai & Delhi Airports, known for their captive audience. With the resumption of travel a month and a half ago, airports saw a sudden surge in eyeballs. It made sense at this time to use airport-centric OOH to drive advertising about SUVs that are often used for travel purposes. Airports are currently one of the very few public spaces where people can assemble. While, social distancing protocols have ensured that the passenger dwell time at the airport has gone up substantially. In this context, it’s important to capitalize tactically on specific airport spots and locations like Departure Lounges and Security Hold Areas. This is where passengers are spending a majority of their airport time, and therefore placing ads here results in better eyeballs & ROI.


Dr. Sophia Somesh, MD – Dr. Vanchilingam Hospital

“We chose airport advertising to reach out Indians residing overseas. OOH advertising has always helped in establishing ourselves as a hospital that comprises with state-of-the-art technology with all facilities available and we will continue to advertise in OOH medium in future.”

Motilal Vijaysen, Director – Raymond

Indore Airport has been recently recognised as the best airport in APAC under the 2-5 million passenger category by Airport Council International (ACI) and it continues to raise benchmarks in customer service and infrastructure. Besides registering a footfall growth of nearly 40 per cent in 2018-19, it also launched International operations to Dubai, becoming the first international airport in Madhya Pradesh.

Iftekhar Ahmed Siddiqui, Vice President – Marketing – iBall

Airport is a premium location in terms of the target audience and ambience, and this audience is more frequently on the move. On an average, they are known to take 4 domestic and 3 international trips in a year. Thus, it makes power banks a must-have in their travel baggage. One also consumes a lot of cellular data while travelling, since people browse content and social media during transit. This make power banks even more crucial for these passengers.

Times OOH has installed these charging stations at every nook and corner of the airport, which gave iBall 72 media options in total, with 144 faces. They complemented this media with compelling communication and QR codes that led to e-commerce websites. “The USP of the campaign was its location and contextual communication: Talking about a product wherein you can’t ignore it. Promoting power banks at Airport mobile charging stations is SPOT ON. That’s what we did, we have identified the location, selected a product and put up classic, evergreen communication that the travellers just can’t ignore. We used Netflix, Whatsapp, PUBG and other popular entertainment platforms in our communications that often consumes the maximum battery of your devices. We told the users, you can continue watching, playing or texting if you have iBall powerbank with you.

Kimi Jain, Kimirica Hunter

When we launched retail, we wanted the customers to get a first-hand experience with our products and the brands we were offering. And, being a manufacturing unit in Indore we wanted to venture out our first Kimirica experience centre at the Indore airport itself. While planning a retail store and discussing the same with the Times OOH group, we decided to engage our customers in an interactive experience to tell them our story. It is one of a kind kiosk which was designed in-house by our talented designers, keeping to give out the best customer experience in mind. We choose the colour and the material which were soothing to the eyes. We wanted to showcase our brands in a manner so that the consumer interaction is easy and positive. We wanted them to feel our passion for every brand we created. She further added, The customers can immerse themselves in the products they like at their own pace and time. So, that’s how the experience centre started. It took us around 4 months to design and finally launch ourselves. It is one of a kind kiosk at the Indore Airport and we plan to open more in the coming future. This would have not been possible without the support we received from the Airport Authority and Times group. Airport retail is now a tried and tested strategy. Pop-ups are a great way to generate revenue and raise brand awareness through ideal positioning, which has consistently allowed brands to access a plethora of eager and diverse shoppers.
