MIA plc to outsource its Advertising
Starting January 2011, International Airport Advertising Corporation Ltd. (“IAAC”), will be taking over the advertising programme on the MIA premises as well as that related to its subsidiary companies.
In view of its recent development MIA has identified the need to maximise on its advertising potential and therefore seek the support of a specialized operator with a high repute in airport advertising. Moreover this falls in line with the highly improved standards achieved recently by MIA as a result of the significant investment engaged in its expansion project.
IAAC has been recently set up in Malta to serve the requisites of MIA. IAAC will be working very closely with their strategic partners, Clear Channel Airports (CCA), and will be geared to assist significantly in enhancing sales at MIA by introducing the latest media available on the market through an investment plan of 1 million Euros. This initiative is intended to further embellish the terminal area and its environment, as well as to pursue MIA's policy of enhancing its professional standards.
