Clear Channel announces new contracts for quartet of US and Caribbean airports
Clear Channel Airport is celebrating new advertising contracts at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, Grantley Adams International Airport in Barbados and the two main international airports of Trinidad & Tobago.
The seven-year renewal (with a further three-year extension option) in New Orleans started when the airport’s new US$1 billion terminal opened in early November. Clear Channel Airport President Morten Gotterup says the advertising company will bring “cutting-edge technology” to the airport, including suspended 4mm double-sided video walls, 98-inch LCD displays in baggage claim and floor projections.
At Barbados’ international airport, Clear Channel has secured a five-year contract as the airport’s exclusive advertising provider. Participants in the new media programme will include clients from tourism, banking and finance, real estate, international business, and retail and distribution brands.
The advertising company has also secured a five-year contract for the two main international airports of Trinidad & Tobago: Piarco International and A.N.R. Robinson International. Clear Channel says it will add to its existing high-impact digital and large format assets. Airports Authority of Trinidad and Tobago General Manager Hayden Newton adds: “We’re happy for the continued partnership, as we aim to deliver even higher standards of service, improve airport aesthetics and enhance the customer experience.”
