London City Airport Targets West End To Fly From the East

19/06/2013

Already the obvious choice for business travellers in Canary Wharf and the City, London City Airport is now turning its attention to Westminster.

A multi-channel marketing campaign has been launched to target the business and political communities in and around the West End, to position LCY as a convenient alternative to Heathrow for European travel. 

Focal points of the campaign include the 25-minute travel time by public transport and the fast transit that the airport offers, with passengers able to reach their departure gate in around 20 minutes.

Radio advertising will be supported by promotional sandwich bags in food outlets at key locations and the distribution of tens of thousands of leaflets at London Underground stations over a three week period. 

Matthew Hall, Chief Commercial Officer at London City Airport said:  “London City Airport is the only airport actually in London.  It is quick and convenient and the perfect way to start your journey if you’re going on a business trip or weekend break.  This campaign is designed to encourage people based in the West End to consider trying the airport for their next flight.

“It also complements the work being done by our in-house media sales team to promote the advertising opportunities available within the airport itself.  The profile of our passengers – 60 per cent business travellers and with an average income in excess of £100,000 per year – means we can offer brands a targeted captive audience.”

The campaign has been launched hot on the heels of a brand refresh which has seen the introduction of the strapline ‘Get Closer’ to the LCY logo.
