Airport (SLE) Advertises Air Service!

Fri Apr 27, 2007 2:02 pm

So I was just watching cable (the History Channel's Modern Marvels episode on fast aircraft), and in the middle of a commercial break, an obviously locally-produced commercial advertises Delta's new CRJ service to SLC (starting June 7th, which I knew about because of the forums), and even goes so far as to advertise how easy it is to get from I-5 to SLE... (I live about 30 miles North of SLE, and our local cable company also covers the next two communities down the Willamette Valley towards Salem...).

Interesting! Anyone ever seen anything like this (the airport handling some of the marketing for a new flight)? This one hast to be a first for me...

LBE has been doing TV spots for quite some time now for their 2x NWA/Mesaba Saabs to DTW. "Leave the Parkway traffic behind and park for free." They're aiming it mainly at eastern suburban Pittsburgh/Westmoreland County dwellers by mentioning the Parkway traffic, but putting it on the cable in my area too is kind of puzzling considering LBE is barely closer to us than PIT is.

ABE provided billboards for Allegiant when they came to the Lehigh Valley as well.

MFR has had commercials in the past showing the destinations served, mostly UAX to DEN, and how convenient the airport is to Southern Oregon.
