JCDecaux Airport launches ‘The Runway’ targeting luxury brands

Airport, the UK’s leading airport advertising company is launching ‘The Runway’, 20 double-sided digital screens, running the length of the luxury retail floor in Heathrow Terminal 5. In proximity to stores such as Prada, Bulgari, Tiffany and Paul Smith, JCDecaux Airport is positioning ‘The Runway’ as the advertising equivalent to the world’s greatest shopping streets: Bond Street, 5th Avenue and Avenue Montaigne.

This is the first time these 40 faces (57 inch) are available in a stand-alone network and follows the recent Eyetracker research that proved the power of sequential advertising at airports. JCDecaux will offer the screens in a two-week campaign, targeting upmarket brands from fashion, fragrances and jewellery to luxury holidays and products.

Richard Malton, Marketing Director of JCDecaux Airport said, ‘The Runway’ provides the perfect audience and environment for luxury brands, with the flexibility to run multiple creatives. This is an opportunity for client to put their brand in a location that is more upmarket than Vogue or Elle with the added benefits that come from banks of sequential screens, as demonstrated by Eyetracker. We are already talking to a number of clients about this exciting proposition.”

JCDecaux Airport is the world leader in airport advertising, with a network of 165 airports around the world, targeting over 1 billion passengers a year. In the UK JCDecaux Airport manages 11 UK air and rail concessions. (Heathrow Airport, Gatwick Airport, Stansted Airport, Southampton Airport, Aberdeen Airport, Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow Airport, London Luton Airport, Eurotunnel, Heathrow Express and the Gatwick Express).
