Inspiring flight into modernity

A new visitor centre opened at Frankfurt Airport in early summer 2021. Spread over 1,200 square meters, visitors can experience the airport world in an interactive and multimedia exhibition full of innovations. Augmented reality and numerous digital installations allow a trip along the baggage conveyor belt, or directly to the controller on the runway, or even to the pilot in the cockpit, making it possible to experience the airport up close. Above all this demonstrates one thing: our location is now much more than just a small stop on a journey, but rather a multifunctional Airport City full of emotion, inspiration and fresh experiences.

In addition, promoters dressed in Chanel raincoats distributed fragrance samples to the passengers. This impressive promotion was the only one of its kind in the world that Chanel implemented at an airport.

The exclusive brands with which the airport has close and creative ties, even beyond their luxury shops, make above-average use of exclusive advertising locations, oversized displays and installations, and set impressive accents for their brand image within Frankfurt Airport. This is why airport advertising is now almost always the CMO's responsibility.
