There have been plenty of impressive high-profile campaigns this year, and it has been fascinating to monitor how traditional marketing is being increasingly blended with social media.
The winner – Changi Airport’s Discover the Fun Side of Changi with Sesame Street – brings loveable characters from the long-running children’s television series to the airport. The vibrant campaign was all about fun, nostalgia, gifting and photo opportunities. You could say it was Streets ahead of the competition.
There was a Highly Commended award too, with HMSHost North America’s 1,000 Acts of Kindness campaign at various US airports taking the prize. The judges were impressed by a campaign that is all about bringing people together through random acts of kindness and by spreading joy.
The quirky and innovative Sky High Sandwich campaign from London Stansted Airport and sandwich emporium Not Always Caviar devised a sandwich that would taste as good, or better, at 35,000 feet. This highlighted not only the changing nature of tastebuds at altitude but also the growing trend towards travellers taking food onboard rather than buying in-flight.
At Indira Gandhi International Airport, the Dilli Streat concept has been such a hit that Travel Food Services (TFS) opened four airport outlets within six months, all providing the Delhi street stall experience. Another big hit for this dynamic Indian airport F&B operator.
