The desirable audience


Access an influent audience in the Middle East region and globally.
A leading transport hub not just in the region, but in the world.


3 Hours: 

the average time an international traveller spends at hubs worldwide, often setting time aside especially for airport shopping. 

From C-Suite Execs to Tech Pioneers and Global Jet Setters, the airport audience contains a high concentration of key business decision-makers and influencers prepared to spend extra at the airport.
Airport advertising is considered to be part of the travel experience. It provides an opportunity for brands to entertain and engage with their audience at the moment when they openly welcome brand messaging.

“If there were no ads, the airport would lose part of its creative edge."
