Belfast Live Launches Major Airport Campaign

Cliona Arthur from Belfast City Airport with Chris Sherrard, Editor of Belfast Live and Joanne Friel, Marketing Director at Mirror Media.

Belfast Live, the website owned by Mirror Media, has launched a new brand campaign at Belfast City Airport as it celebrates four years since the site first launched.

Airport passengers using the Sydenham Bypass in both directions will spot the big brand campaign by the local digital news platform which occupies the bus shelter site at the entrance of the airport terminal.

According to Belfast City Airport, 2.6m passengers travel through the airport each year. The campaign aims to showcase Belfast Live’s proposition as ‘The only destination for all things Belfast’ to commuters.

Belfast Live has been building its brand presence in  Northern Ireland over the last four years, positioning the site as the go-to destination for what’s happening in Belfast and beyond. The publisher is supporting this identity by employing the tagline ‘News on hand when you land’ as its overarching message for the Airport campaign, tying into the travel theme.

According to Joanne Friel, marketing director at Mirror Media: ”City airport is a great location for us to showcase the Belfast Live brand as the go-to destination for ‘all things Belfast’. We’re delighted to be occupying this prime outdoor site at such an integral part of Belfast.”

She adds: “The highly visible site, just outside the main Arrivals Terminal will engage passers-by travelling in the high footfall, high traffic location – so that’s airport passengers, public transport users and commuters on the Sydenham Bypass.”

According to Cliona Arthur, media sales manager Belfast City Airport: “We were delighted when Mirror Media chose Belfast City Airport as the leading venue to promote their digital news channel, Belfast Live. We developed a bespoke campaign for Belfast Live on the bus shelter at the front of the terminal. The shelter allows passengers to interact with the campaign while they wait on the bus. The shelter also targets passengers travelling to and from the various car parks and acts as a roadside format reaching those travelling via the Sydenham Bypass. The shelter is flood lit and can be seen 24 hours per day on the third busiest road in Northern Ireland. The reach from this one format is extensive and the creative is really striking.”
