OOH Airport Advertising

Are your travelers arriving, or getting ready to take off? Travelers may spend hours throughout the airport, in shuttles, checking in, waiting for their flight, or picking up luggage from the baggage claim area. You can greet them along the way with impactful messaging to raise brand awareness and visibility for geo-specific target audiences.

Check out the types of Airport Advertising:

Backlit Diorama

Backlit dioramas call attention to your ad designs for high visibility. You can place them over the baggage claim carousels, by the security lines, or around passenger check-in. These are typically large, static images that are great for growing brand awareness.


Spectacular are large lightboxes displayed in high traffic areas, typically placed in the middle of large areas with heavy foot traffic. You can place them between terminals, near taxi lines, or by car rental centers. While they are more expensive to produce and purchase than other options, they are highly visible to all visitors that walks by, and the right design will be sure to draw eyes to your brand’s message.

Mini Spectaculars

Mini-spectaculars are cheaper to produce and place than spectaculars, making them a good entry point for advertisers that are testing the waters. They are typically placed in arrival areas or concorses, where travelers are sure to spend some extra time waiting.


Banners are essentially indoor airport billboards for your brand, offering a large, eye-catching space visible to everyone walking through the airport. You can plaster them on walls or hang them from ceilings throughout the airport. Banners are often bold, bright colors to stand out from the typically neutral coloring of airport terminal walls and ceilings.

Digital Screens

With digital airport advertising technology, you can change your messaging and decide exactly when and where each of your ads are playing. Humans’ eyes are naturally attracted to moving images, so you can cut through the noise and deliver your advertising to travelers as they make their way from one place to the next.

Luggage Carts

Companies can put their brand on luggage carts to create a moving billboard that travels throughout the airport. When a traveler uses a luggage cart with an engaging airport ad, they take up more space as they walk through the crowd of visitors, sure to catch the attention of travelers rushing to their gate.

Airport Shuttles

Airport advertising companies can use exterior stickers or interior placards , as well as place ads on bus shelters or benches. Airport shuttles offer plenty of dwell times for your ad. Business travelers are more likely to utilize airport parking and take the shuttle to their gate, and you can fine-tune your messaging to reach flyers in business mode, ready to take decisive action for the right opportunity. 

Baggage Claim

We have all been there- waiting for our luggage on the baggage carousel for what seems like hours. This makes the perfect opportunity to target the idle travelers awaiting their luggage. There are options to actually display ads on the equipment itself by putting your ad on the moving carousel. There are also available OOH opportunities atop the baggage carousels with banner ads.

Benefits of Airport Advertising

There are over 5,000 airports throughout the United States offering a wide range of options for budgets of all sizes. The price of entry depends on the location and the size of the airport, but the one thing they all share is 24/7 visibility at a low price per impression. Some of the notable benefits of airport OOH advertising include:
  • Maximize your Ad Spend If you advertise in a busy airport, you get more exposure for every dollar you spend and get one of the best returns on your investment for any advertising opportunity. Travelers come from all walks of life, and airports have flexible points of entry for your budget that are easily scalable once your business sees the results of your brand exposure.
  • Controlled Message Delivery Airports offer uncluttered visibility that travelers can’t skip, mute, or block. With digital displays, you can refine your messaging through the seasons and even down to the time of day. Your messaging can target lifestyles and business needs to help you connect with your ideal consumers.
  • Travelers Have Money to Spend An airport advertisement campaign offers a unique opportunity to target an affluent audience of frequent flyers. Your messaging offers a welcome distraction for people who are ready to spend money. Travelers often crave new experiences, and if you offer the right inspiration you can take advantage of a crowd with a more receptive mindset.
  • Proven Results with Location Based Audiences Airport advertising is popular because it works. Airport travelers are breaking from their daily routines, which puts them in a uniquely receptive mindset. Airports travelers have an average of 90% ad awareness throughout their visit, and are more likely to purchase products and services they’ve seen while moving through the airport.
